For an outdoor enthusiast like myself, the allure of a National Park is hard to resist. The National Park Service preserves natural, cultural, and historical sites all across the United States.

Thankfully, the National Park Service has taken it upon themselves to offer a FREE lifetime pass for US Citizens that have a permanent disability. It allows you to be admitted for FREE to more than 2,000 federal recreation sites.

“I have always believed (and this has been strongly re-enforced by a progressive disease) that if there's something that you love to do and you can somehow do, then you should do it now. With disability, the idea of what you can do must be creatively and flexibly supplemented with different ways of doing things and with adaptive tools, such as the Freedom Chair.”
