New to the blogroll: The Traveling Wheelchair

After spending nearly 20 years in a nursing home, Kenny now has an accessible home. I found his wonderful blog The Traveling Wheelchair, which rates places he goes to in terms of access, on a score of five to zero. This is a great access guide for others traveling in Massachusetts, where most of the recent places seem to be. Kenny describes parking facilities, ramps on beaches and things to do at each place.

There is also a section on DisabilityVoice , where you can get your own web page for advocacy issues.

His blog also contains a lot of disability-related information, including legislation , the ADA, and other links.

I really like his mission statement:

"To help make the world more sensitive, respectful, safer and accessible to all."
