(writing 2/26/2021, updated 8/11/22) My very first plane ride with the wheelchair was from San Francisco to Disneyland. It started and ended with disaster, but we made it! I had been warned about how to prepare the chair for flight and it survived the trip there. More on flights and transit later in post. WhenContinue reading “SF to Disneyland California”
We were there for a wedding, so that was our primary focus, but we did manage to get out a bit. Flying in We had to fly into Honolulu first because the only flights from SF to Hawaii with lay-back seats (which I need for long flights) go through there. The hop to Maui wasContinue reading “Maui”
Our trip: SF>Barstow>Grand Canyon>Bryce Canyon>Moab/Arches>Santa Fe>Petroglyphs/Gallup (route 66)>Petrified Forest/Needles (route 66)>Joshua Tree/Techapi>SF This time on our way back we took a 30 min detour to take the 5 instead of taking 99, though it was the most direct route.

Then I changed it to Holbrook (which looked like a nicer town to stay in) by the Petrified Forest National Park, but when they dayContinue reading “Day 8 Santa Fe to Gallup”
Travel experience on visiting the Grand Canyon in a wheelchair, an RV, or just generally.
We will be traveling in an accessible RV with my wheelchair across the Southwest from San Francisco. Our plan is to go San Francisco > Bartow > Grand Canyon > Bryce Canyon > Moab (and Arches National Park) > Santa Fe > Gallup > Mojave Desert (via Oatman)> SF
There is a huge range of ME/CFS and you need to tailor your travel to fit your level. You need to stay well within your safety envelope for activity when you are outside or traveling.

Tokyo is very accessible. I went on a business trip in late July-August 2019. My artwork was being shown at the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. I spent a few days installing while my husband and daughter went wandering and then we got to look around together for about a week.
