Due to medical bills and other expenses, all the money that I had saved while I was still able to work, is now gone. I survive on Social Security Disability which is quite a small amount.
I have one last wish/dream. That is to get a three wheeled motorcycle (trike) and ride all around the United States and Canada. I have met many friends on Facebook who have offered me a bed and a meal while traveling so I would basically just need gas money and a meal a day which I could afford. I have seen used trikes for sale for around $10 to $12k so depending what I can raise, I hope to be able to buy a trailer to pull behind that could haul my walker and camping items.
I am hoping to raise the funds as soon as possible and start this last adventure by September or October. I would ride through the southern states in the Winter and head north come Spring. I will document this ride and raise money for Ataxia research. My goal is to raise $50k for the National Ataxia Foundation .
If anyone knows of someone who has a motorcycle trike that they would be willing to donate or sell at a rediculously low price, please let me know. Also if you would have a bed and a meal, that would be great also.
I think this is my last chance to have one last adventure before the ole wheelchair creeps up on me, so I ask politely for your help!
