Hello, Back in January 2011, I was 49 and diagnosed with Macular Degeneration in both my eyes. my left eye being the worst not being able to see out of it. My right eye was ok but I could not see straight lines any more. Knowing that time was not on my side I decided to go on the ride of a lifetime while I still could. I have traveled over 100,000 miles on my Harley over the years all around this great country we live in and one day make that big trip to Alaska. So I decided to do it now even with the challenges of using one eye. These are the stories and pictures I took on the way as I left Long Island N.Y. on my solo trip to Alaska and back.
