“It’s not about doing things in a certain way. It’s about finding YOUR way to do it (your “STYLE”), even if it looks different than how most people do it. Sometimes, how you need to do it even looks entirely different than YOU thought it would. That doesn’t matter. Find your own unique way to accomplish those things most important to you.”

The great thing about the outdoors is that no matter what time of the year it is, there is always something to do. Sometimes you have to adapt to the weather or the temperature in order to properly enjoy things, though. Luckily, my GRIT Freedom Chair is a versatile, all terrain wheelchair. It allows me to enjoy all types of activities no matter what the seasons throw at me.

America the Beautiful: National Parks Access Pass

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. Some of the most breathtaking landscapes are within these park boundaries. 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.
