To answer your headline question, it's simple: The private, for-profit US health care system is simply broken.Our health care system is not working. We have by far the most expensive health care in the world -- by far -- and we have a life expectancy that is going down with tens of millions of people without health care.When I live in Europe, many people I met simply did not understand the concept of how someone could go bankrupt for being sick. Yet we in the US are indoctrinated and brainwashed to think that is normal.Once upon a time we had private, for-profit fire departments. But then we realized that was stupid, discriminatory and harming the public. So we socialized the system and created public fire departments that are cheaper, more efficient and serve everyone.We need to do the same thing for health care.

In some notes, I saw that in 2011 we were paying $260 a month for my Medigap policy. Now, eight years later, we are paying $400 every month. That is a 65 percent increase. No way our income went up anywhere near that much. That's one of our insurance bills. Just saying. My insurer will keep cranking up the increases because at this point no one else will take me. At the rodeo the rider has to hold on for eight long seconds. We've got to hold on for 11 more years until I'm eligible to enter the federally protected open marketplace.So, uh, not looking for free stuff. Rather, not wanting my wife to wind up destitute because of my trick nervous system. Got it?

Hi, I wrote about our visit to Arches National Park & accessibility. We couldn't spend as much time as we liked, but it was gorgeous.https://thewheeledwonder.wordpress.com/2019/09/04/arches-national-park-by-wheelchair/

For those of you interested in accessible travel, I have found many great resources on Instagram and Facebook.  There are hashtags specifically used for that purpose on Instagram. A couple that come to mind are #accessiblecamping #accessibletravel #accessiblefamilytravel and many variations of these names.  There are also folks who maintain their own pages and if you just search by names like “accessible” and “travel”, you’ll find many different pages.  The same thing on Facebook.  I look at Accessible Family Travel and Accessible Travel Online but there are tons out there.  There’s a campground called Wilderness on Wheels in Colorado which has an Insta and Facebook page.   I also read lately that Winnebago had recently come out with three accessible RV models.  (Don’t think I want to see the price tag on those but the pics looked beautiful!).  Safe travels everyone!!

Thanks, Sharon. I'm definitely posting more about our setup – we put in a loooot of homework, more than any other vehicle we've ever bought. And tomorrow morning, we are off again!

Congratulations!   Just read your blog post.  I hope you’ll post some pics of the inside of the RV and Van.  Would love to see how they’re adapted! Have fun! Sharon
