Check out the Camping with Mobility Camp http://www.mobilitycamp.org/?page_id=49 section of our website to see what all is involved. If you want to help provide a much needed service to Bla...

Re: Visit the Black Rock City Airport -- For a Gift Ride:

They have gifted rides to our wheelies and other Mobility impaired folks. Truly an AMAZING experience for someone who normally sees the Playa from 3 ft high! The Ride Wrangler and pilots are amazing folks:) We are so grateful for all you do! Hopefully we will get a group out to you this year as well...

Looking for ASL interpreters camp

Hi All,
I'm looking to get in touch with the ASL interpreters camp. I have been contacted by an interpreter who wants to volunteer with us. I know in the past there has been a theme camp and she would like to get in touch with them.

Thanks!

Re: Medications on the playa...

Another thing to note if you are a Virgin Burner, or have been prescribed a new medication since your last burn. Look to see if it makes you "Sun Sensitive"! You can get a SEVERE Sunburn, even if you "never Burn", if you are taking meds that increase your sun sensitivity. That la...

Re: Mobility and More!

Since we have no parts really, we only see stuff on an emergency basis at this point. It just depends...If you are going to have one on site, stop by and see me with your location and I'll keep that tucked away for future reference, just in case we do need something:)

Re: Mobility and More!

Does Mobility Camp often run into situations where some small special-shaped plastic doohickey has broken and needs to be replaced for the equipment to work properly? Let's say brackets, bearing mounts, pieces of controller, etc? Most common is a charging issue, either a charger cord /power supply ...

Re: Mobility and More!

It's actually having the huge stockpile of parts that would be needed...and having a mechanic who knows about all mobility equipment, both old and new that would be the biggest problem.
Anyone who would like to volunteer those things....talk to me:)

Anyone going to be a neighbor?
If anyone in your camp becomes one of the walking wounded (Those pesky Failure to Fly injuries) come by and see what we can do to help them out.

You might try writing something witty on the side. One year we put a giant rat face and tail on the van and had a banner on both sides that had a Rat in a wheelchair the said " IT'S A GIANT WHEELCHAIR! OK?!" We didn't get any crap that year. The flags and stickers help but they are not foo...

Yup they are awesome...but expensive! One of the guys in our camp last year had one from europe that ran forever!! He used it to pull him all the way out to the temple!
