Retirement Dream

The American DreamNightmare

My wife & I have been married since 1996. We had our kids in 1998 & 2000. We never got to take a honeymoon. My wife is an extremely good woman and deserves more than I can possible deliver. We want to see all America has to offer in our golden years. I've turn 50 last year and she's close behind me, retirement is right around the corner. We both have medical issues that limit our mobility and we both live with lifelong pain issues. We want to see the beauty in all 50 states. Mountains, clear night sky without light pollution, waterfalls, national monuments, you name it. Unfortunately it's not looking like any of that will be available to us. It would mean everything to us to be able to travel and take in all nature has left to enjoy. No donation to small, we are hoping it will all add up to happy ending to our lives. As much as I don't like asking for help, I fear not being able to afford a retirement for my lovely wife. Please consider donating.
