Maybe a potluck that could be held at my TT one evening. Something like that. Any interest?

Last year was my first RTR. I’m really looking forward to this one. I plan to be a bit more social and meet some of my fellow nomads.

I'd love to. So much needed info for people with disabilities. I have multiple health problems and I just became full time on December 20th. Been planning since 2013, and on Dec 20th it all came to fruition. I'm so excited and at the same time finding many roadblocks I need to plow through that others don't. Would love to hear and learn regarding this issue. I got to Ehrenberg on Jan 2nd, and jumped in full force to my new free life, as though I had no disability. Then reality set in when the nerves in my legs decided to completely give out, and I couldn't walk. I managed to arm walk myself into my camper and pulled myself onto the bed to wait it out. My nerves stop functioning at times, but NEVER like that. I almost had to call 911 DAY ONE!!! I was like, "No way am I failing on DAY ONE!!!" That was when I realized I DO have health issues, I WILL have to be conscious of them, and care for myself differently, if I am to succeed out here. I DO NOT have to be a slave to my illness, but it IS a part of me.

Okay, people keep arriving at the RTR spot designated and I have been there. Can we get a day and time please. There seems to be several people who are unaware of this meet up that are disabled and I don't have much I can tell them.

I applaud your courage. You do not have to be a slave to your disability but you do have to accept its limitations or as you found out, it will explain them to you very clearly. My legs have only once completely stopped working, dropped out from under me lots and not too long ago I could not stand for the life of me. I thought this is BS and I am going to stand one way or another. I passed out after the third try and luckily a friend was there to catch me. So I have figured out that it is better to do what I can rather than put myself in those positions and have to call for help.

I hope to show some of the things I do to make it easier on me out here.
