I am at the point in this adventure where I must ask for help. I like asking for help about as much as I like being attacked by badgers and bleeding to death, but I’ve come to the point where if I want to finish this adventure, I’ll need a little help.
In Colorado I have joined forces with Ralph, who has also been walking across the U.S. with his dog. We are currently facing down the enormity of the Rockies, and soon will be in the deserts of Utah, Nevada, and California. Our plan of attack involves hiring someone to drive a support car across the desert portions of our journey. This means additional money for the driver as well as gas money for the car. This is not in my budget, but I will not be able to finish this adventure without it.
So I come to you, dear readers, for help. You see that shiny Donate button up at the top right side of the website? If you could click on that and donate whatever you can spare, it would be greatly appreciated. You can then consider yourself part of the adventure, for without you I surely will not be able to make it all the way to the Pacific.
Or for those of you who distrust PayPal and the internet in general, email me and I will give you a physical address to mail your donation to.
In case you’re wondering, I did indeed plan this trip out and save up to what I thought was a healthy budget. But here’s the thing about my budget – I did not plan for horrible weather, an evil Wizard, or car support across the West. Foolish, I know, but there it is.
As I said, anything you can spare will help. Anna and I honestly need your help to finish this grand adventure and make the dream happen.
