As contemplate how much work I have left planning all the stops to fundraiser for Mission22, I am thankful that I am healthy enough to make this trip. I am thankful for my family and friends.
But, I cannot help thinking of the struggles that my fellow vets are dealing with trying to get through this holiday and those that may not make the next.
These thoughts renews my energy and determination to succeed in my journey.
To instill compassion into those I meet to make them aware and to educate them. I am but one life on a mission to save thousands and I cannot truly enjoy until I have reach the end of my trip.
I am still hoping that I can get the kayak I need to make the trip easier and safer either through the company sponsor program or raise the funds through my gofundme.
I received good news today that Garmin is donating the GPS unit I would like to take with me. A very grateful thank you to Garmin.
I only have 5 months to go before I start.
