#### Accepting donations for the upcoming three thousand mile trip to Florida and back in the free Palestine solar bike car. As of today, so that the mission can take place, the money that I have for food for the next two months is 0. I'm fine with that, but the mission isn't going to last very long, I'm not going to exist very long, unless that changes. Not my job. My job is to undertake the mission. Yesterday and today it became clear that the trip requires investment in a $1,600 (installed) transmission, https://www.rohloff.de/en/products/speedhub/, an internally geared bike Hub,  literally the only Hub in the world robust enough* for the stress I put on this vehicle. The Standard hub has just broken for the sixth time. Although that Hub is under warranty it is just not feasible to undertake this first 3000 leg of the Nationwide tour coming up without a reliable gear system. The trip is going to happen,  and I'm going deep into debt now so that it does. How long it lasts, how long I last, depends on whether donations are forthcoming and/or the assistance I've requested prior, which has not materialized at all, in the form of individuals or organizations points South that want to provide a meal, a place for a sleeping bag that is safe, shelter from hurricanes literally... The Pay Pal is at Start underscore loving at yahoo.com. You should share this opportunity with anyone that you think wants to see the mission succeed. The mission is described here. http://jesusgodgoodetcnjay.blogspot.com/2016/08/your-help-needed-searching-for-life-in.html

* There's a remote chance that one other Hub could do the job, at roughly half the price, the Shimano alfine 11, and with the help of a highly-qualified very decent bike shop locally that too is being explored.
