I need health insurance on my trip.
Im leaving Chicago a month from today (July 25th) to travel the South for the entirety of an SEC football season, attend games, meet people, live on the road, and write a book about the experience.
I've saved money and worked a couple jobs this summer to make the trip work financially.
However, I won't be able to cover health insurance for the year by myself. My former employer has a decent package that costs about $1800 for the year.
I don't like the idea of asking people for money but it's what the circumstances call for. I guess I take some comfort in knowing this seems a more worthwhile ask than the guy who got 50k to make potato salad.
Not having done this before, I don't know how the thank you gift system works, but know that if you donate and help me get insured for this trip, I will find some way to acknowledge that and show my gratitude.
Thanks so much for helping me chase down a dream of mine before I get too old and tied down and sit around talking about what I might have done.
