Begpacker – Tourists who travel backpacker-style without sufficient funds but ask for donations, freebies, and handouts from locals. I guess that I most identify with this category.
I’m not going to lie and I know some will not like that I am begging for money. It may seem frivolous but I see people asking for money for things I never had, prom, a honeymoon, etc. I didn’t run up a lot of credit card debit that I can’t pay. I paid my medical bills without help from others. At my age and the health I’m in, I am not able to work, and save money.
I have struggled all my life just to make ends meet. Sometimes getting so far behind I thought I would never get the bills paid. I don’t need money to pay the bills. What I don’t have money for is FUN. I love to travel. I am a senior citizen with a bucket list.
Twenty years ago I had a job-related accident. It caused me to develop a condition called RSD (Reflex Sympathetic Dystrophy), now called Type II CRPS. Then 10 years ago I survived a blockage of the LAD artery in my heart. That is informally known as the Widowmaker. As of right now my health is relatively good.
I would love to have a small camper. It would allow me to travel with less expense. Motel rooms are out of the question on my income. Walmart parking and Cracker Barrel parking lots are free. I have a National Park Access Pass (for the disabled) that allows me to visit National parks free. Camping is also 50% off in most National Parks.
The camper I’m looking at can be towed with my car. Most campers are to heavy for my car to tow. It is called a Runaway. It is basically a box with an air conditioner. You have to furnish it with a bed, cooler, storage, etc. I have a wish list at Amazon for some of those things. https://www.amazon.com/hz/wishlist/ls/3UM9110WZZWSY?ref_=wl_share.
A new car is also out of the question. I can’t afford that either. My car is 15 years old. If by some miracle I raise more money than needed for the camper the extra money would be put away for a car.
I have managed to save a little bit, but with the prices of everything going up it could take me years to save enough. I don’t have years.
I would like to thank you in advance for your donation. Any amount would be greatly appreciated.
