I am looking for used gear as follow Helmet size Medium Gloves summer and winter size Medium Pant size 32x30 Boots size 10.5 The items must be used condition and the reason for this is ...Read below. So this happen last few day and it is driving me Crazy to see my nephew venture out alone without proper gears and planning. Message from his mom It is a beautiful but cold morning. It was about ten am when he finally left for the first of many adventures he has been hoping, planning, waiting to execute. I am scared for him but I had to let him go. He just could not wait. If my parenting and Allan's scale on being a good son were to be measured by the ruler of OBEDIENCE, then we would both have failed. I failed because I could never force Allan to do, or not to do, anything he does not believe in. Allan would fail because he would never obey just for the sake of obeying no matter how much he loves or respects me. He verbalized his desire to travel on his own over a year ago. For the last nine months, he bought and rebuilt a motorcycle, improved it and improved on it again. He learned how to do the repair by reading the manual, asking questions from others, and viewing pictures on line. His determination spreads over to other challenges as well. Part of becoming a vegetarian, Allan tried not to waste resources. The old pair of leather shoes Jonothan gave the boys fall apart. The second time to the cobbler shop, he declined to fix them stating the wear and tear exceeded reasonable repairs. So what did Allan do? He repaired the shoes himself. He bought supply from the cobbler to make the inside sole. He bought threads and sat for 3 days sewing the upper leather part to the inner sole that he has punched holes in. Using old car tires as the outer sole, he glued together all the parts and succeeded in his first repair job. He moaned and screamed every time the needle went through his skin. He cussed at how long it took. Yet my offer to buy him a new pair to avoid all the agony, he declined. He also spent 3 days sewing buckles to his bags so that he can secure them to his motorcycle. If you know me you would also know how sad and worry I am that he is not at all concern with education right now or the near future. This is his senior year. Every where I am, people talked about their child and asked me about mine on plans college. I will not have that story to tell. But I try to tell myself that a smart person like him would surely not let God's gift goes to waste. He did not study at all for the SAT exam because he said "you're supposed to be tested on what you already know". Yet he scored 2040 out of 2400. His first trip: he plans to travel south about 500 miles on his motorcycle. He packed all the necessary supplies for sleeping outdoor at state parks, tools to make minor repairs, snacks & clothes for 5 to 7 days, some money and a bank card. He rigged his bike with a lighter so he can charge his phone along the way. His final destination is in Tennessee. He will be 17 years old on Nov 14th. I wanted him to wait until he turned 18 yo to travel but there was no way possible his heart and mind would stay put waiting that long. At this point, I will pray for his safety and wait with my phone next to me for his check-in call. Please keep him in your thoughts and prayers. And this is the new message as of this morning Allan's text message came in an hour ago: "I just had a crazy adventure riding this crazy trail in New River Gorge. Thank God I didn't try to do this last night. Google map told me to go here. It stopped short probably pretty close to the end. It's getting dark. Must have been like 8 miles of large rocks, deep puddles, and other debris. Dropped the bike a couple times but I'm getting pretty good. Bent my brake peddle badly but I can still use it. My boots are thrashed but holding up. Man....." I wanted to set up a place for him to stay in door but he insisted on sleeping outdoor again tonight. He called me this morning sounded quite miserable and tired. He said it got too cold around 6:30 am so he packed up and rode to the nearby town to get food. However, he did not know it was 30 miles away. His hands got very cold he stopped every ten minutes to warm them up before continuing on. He plans to return home tomorrow so he did not continue south to Knoxville as he has planned originally. Apparently, there is a website called "COUCH SURFING" where you can arrange to sleep in someone's house for free. There is also a website called AIRBNB.com where people rent out a room in their home at a lower rate than hotels. He rather considers his option than having me pay for him to stay at one of these homes. It is late now and dark. The weather said it will drop slowly to from 60 to 49 by 6 am tomorrow. No rain. He thinks he should be fine sleeping outdoor again. He seemed comfortable being alone and doing things alone. That is so unlike the "Phamily" character. Imagine him completely alone in a huge state park. OMG! This is Allen :wink: So if you have any of those items laying around please let me know.
