We camped at Snaring River, where the only sites available were a couple of walk-in sites.  We grabbed one and used my wheelchair to help carry the large and heavy car camping gear. After several trips down a medium-packed gravel path, we ended up enjoying what was probably our best – most private and best view, not far from a flowing river – campsite of the trip.

Getting to Know My GRIT Freedom Chair

Getting to Know My GRIT Freedom Chair

The ground was uneven in places and had a thick covering of grass and stones. The Freedom Chair with its levers gave me the ability to move around and get close up to take photos. Carrying my camera gear, a tripod and cell phone was tricky, but I managed to make it work. My chair was a muddy mess, but I loved every minute of it. I am excited by all the possibilities this opens for me, and I look forward to sharing my adventures with you.
