As I mentioned in my initial post, a very important part of this experience for us is attempting to use this adventure to raise money for an extremely important charity, the Alzheimer’s Association. Nearly everyone at least knows someone affected and has seen the impact of our loved one’s losing themselves to the ravages of this awful disease.

I will be adding a widget to the page to allow for donations, but first I would like to provide the direct link to our newly minted donations page , graciously provided by ALZ to kickstart this process. The greatest payback is the knowledge that you have done your part, but my future work on this site hopefully will also reward your donation with insight and knowledge to plan your own adventures, while also providing the means to hopefully allow other’s to continue their adventures as well (memories intact).
