After spending five years as a full time sole carer for my father in his final years, I dreamed of traveling and finally seeing more than just the one coastline I've lived near my entire life.
Then along came the pandemic to delay my plans for several more years.

Finally finding myself in a position to get out and explore, I began training my strength and endurance for long distance cycling. Then I started to build a trailer to tow behind me, big enough to take my few belongings with me, as well as carry food, repair tools, plus a solar panel and battery for recharging my phone and laptop wherever I go.

Now I just need a little money to finish things off and get me on my way.

$1500 will cover my final few weeks rent, get me the few parts I need to finish wiring up the trailer electricals, as well as some sundries needed for camping on the road (such as the curious tent peg shortage), and finally give me a little 'emergency cash' to cover the cost of any unexpected repairs.

Along with being an adventure, this is also my living and survival plan for the next few years. Any help is greatly appreciated.

Frustratingly Back to Where I Started

Update posted by Lisa Milne at 12:35 pm

After running this campaign for several months, helping a friend by doing some labour for house repairs and improvements, and an unexpected repair needed on the bike, I now find I'm pretty much back where I started.I was meant to leave here several weeks ago, but departure was delayed due. . . . .

Emergency Funds needed sooner than expected (or hoped)

Update posted by Lisa Milne at 07:45 am
rrrr

A supposed "quick trip" to the post office the other day resulted in a puncture caused by a large shard of glass wedging itself in my back tyre. For extra fun I managed to tear my finger open on said shard while changing the tube.I'm ok after quickly digging out. . . . .

Trailer test setup, and $100 to go on immediate needs.

Update posted by Lisa Milne at 04:23 am

I'm down to just $100 to go to cover immediate needs: bills, rent, etc up till departure day. Then I just need a little for sundries that will make camping easier, and the rest can go in the bank as an emergency fund.Meanwhile, the trailer nears completion, with painting almost. . . . .
