2013 Bataan Memorial Death March
White Sands Missile Range, New Mexico
It was all planned and we were ready. However, Kellisa's customized off-road chair broke between Houston and El Paso. Unable to fix it and with no time to ship a replacement part, we were finished before we could even start.
Kellisa not having a wheel is like me breaking an ankle. In other words, she wasn't going anywhere unless I carried her because we didn't bring a standard wheelchair on this trip (lesson learned the hard way). Maybe I'll write about the struggle of carrying Kellisa and moving our ton of gear from El Paso - Albuquerque - Chicago - Orlando - Jacksonville at another time, but I'm sure you can imagine.
Below is the one good tire and the broken tire:
The only bright side- at least this happened at the airport and not in the middle of the unforgiving desert!
We'll be back in 2014 with spare parts and tools!
