He claimed his wheelchair was solar powered and able to take cross-country trips. I really wanted to believe him, but I didn’t notice any solar panels on or around his chair. Needless to say, he seemed to know a lot about solar energy and its benefits. After I took this photo he asked me if I would sign his chair. While I was looking for a place to write my name amongst other countless signatures, he began to tell me about his goal to ride from Los Angeles to Miami. It’s a “world record” according to Marco. A record I hope he achieves. If you ever come across him, don’t be afraid to say “hi,”smile, etc. He means well and has a positive spirit. Who knows, maybe you'll see him on his "trek" across the states.
