After a lot of changes and movement the trip has been moved up again. I’m kind of getting sick of typing that, as I’m sure you’re rolling your eyes at my repetitiveness. It seems to be a constant. This time there is a much, much better reason for the postponement.
I am postponing this time because the film crew I am going to have follow me will not be ready until April. That’s right, a film crew! All of the postponements, cancelations and pitfalls have worked in my favor. I will have more information on the filming of the trip on a later date, but that is why the date has changed, AGAIN.
I will now be leaving Hilton Head Island, SC on April 4, 2020. As I put in my previous post: I noticed a strange occurrence when looking into preliminary planning for next years trip. The number 4. In February I will celebrate my 4th kidneyversary for my 4th transplant. Near the end of my trip in June, I will be turning 44 years old. 2020 = 4! It may seem silly, but I see these occurrences as a sign. Scooting4Donors will be bigger than I even imagined. I can feel it.
Now, I will be leaving on the 4th day of the 4th month of the 4th year of my 4th kidney transplant in the 44th year of my life.
Another little change I have made in the trip is a little reroute on the map. Instead of going through a lot of Texas, including Lubbock and Amarillo, I am going to see more of Oklahoma and Kansas. I’m sure the Texas Hill Country and Plains are nice, but I was only scooting through the corners of Oklahoma and Kansas to say I went through those states. I know there is much more to see.
I can’t wait to get back out on the road and help teach people why we need more organ donors! I’m hoping to add thousands of names to the national registry.
Even though I’m gearing up for my trip, I still need money and sponsors! Please share this page and my GoFundMe Page so I can get more people involved. Thank you for reading and happy new year! 2020 will be HUGE!
