If you add in the difficulty of having to only go out one the most calm of days.......well that's just depressing..

Great thought....more power to you if you can figure it out....I wouldn't think it would be possible on a commercial scale....and definitely not something you could make a living at. Good luck.
I'm not looking to make a living off of just that. But I will have special trips for disabled and at extremely low prices or free. But Im not going to depend on that for income. But hopefully I will get sponsored and will get my bussiness big.

We were up that way for a few prenatal appointments with my son. He was born at Sacred Heart then transferred to Children's Hospital Boston for his surgeries. Sorry for the derail. I was just trying to let you know that there are folks out there that appreciate the thoughts.

i think this is a great idea,with the time and the proper planning it would work.its not something that would happen over night but with hard work comes great rewards.for starters i would try asking for donations to get it started .those donation jars at cash registers would at up quick with extra change .i know i would throw my change in a jar for a handicapped child before i would give it to a baseball team asking for donations in front of walmart.local captains might would want to offer a great discount to someone that has organized such a event.if you could get bill dance , roland martin ,or jimmy houston to do a show that would start it off right.id start small and work towards bigger things,but remember what the real purpose is .my hats off to you though.
