Porkies Thru-Hiking amputee

I would like to hike the North Country Trail sections in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan, the so called “Yooper 500”. I am trying to replicate the task that Alex Maier completed for his eponymous video seen on Amazon and YouTube. Need gear upgrades and travel expenses to make this a reality. I am 59 years old and, since 2018, a below the knee amputee on my right leg. My ultimate dream is the PCT and AT. I am on SS Disability so funds are tight. Thank you for your consideration. I would like to begin hiking Spring 2021.
