      Ok! What have you done that some may call a little crazy? I’ve skydived, bungee jumped, paraglided, scuba dived & tried to fly a plane & swum with piranhas in the Amazon Jungle. Share away & inspire me!

      Disney Land & California Adventure thrill rides! (Anaheim, California) All accessible if you’re able to transfer manually, floor to seating transfers would help immensely as some of the seats are very deep. But everything accessible!! All larger seats as well. As for Universal Studios, it was great too but smaller seating. Harder to get around in terms of cobblestones but still fantastic. Bathrooms all relatively clean and tidy in both spots!

      You failed to mention Jess that you also go straight to the front of lines too!

      Genuinely interested in the mechanics of bungee jumping and skydiving. With the force of the rope, I always picture this situation where my legs can’t handle the impact. What do they do to stop that happening?

      Hi 221B Baker Street! When i had my injury i had serious compound fractures to my legs so i too was reluctant to attach the bungey cord to my legs. What i did instead is attach it to my torso. As for skydiving i jumped tandem. You really don’t need to do much at all. Just have faith in who’s jumping with you. Just don’t freak out once the free fall finishes & he or she adjusts the straps. It may feel like you are slipping for a sec. It’s a beautiful feeling floating through the air & landing wasn’t rough at all. Good luck!

        Hi Guys, I was born a Adrenaline Junkie with first attending local Speedway meetings in the country as soon as my older brother was old enough to drive. Then he got involved in dirt bike racing with me helping on the pit stop side of things getting dirty,then i first got my first taste of Drag Racing January 1980 at the old Castlereagh Dragway  to see Aust vs USA at the age of 17 and have been hooked ever since.Recently went to the Fuel Altered Challenge at Sydney Dragway near Blacktown where there was 4 American teams,4 Australian teams and 2 Kiwi teams competing for the first time in such numbers in Australia plus a large array of support classes.it was a great day and i took heaps of photos from my Chair cruising around the pits which is only allowed freely in Drag Racing, try that at Bathurst. So for those who are interested there is Sydney hugest meeting 1-2 November at Sydney Dragway featuring Australian Top 6 Categories plus a support of another 6 Categories both in Cars and Bikes.I took a friend with M D and when the top fuellers started up in the pits he had to move way because the vibrations in the air and fumes made it hard for him to breath temporarily.So give it a go it will take your breath and your hearing away. For details go to sydneydragway.com.au and look up meetings on there calendar and i will see you at the Drags. Davey G

      Hi, I am a “walker” with a S2 Asia B sci injury.I am 59 years old. I am one of the priveliged few that can “walk”. My injury happened in 2014. I have been on an emotional roller coaster ever since.  🙁 But….. through a lot of hard work I was able to return to my sport of road racing sidecars. 2019 saw me become Aussie F2 sidecar champion swinging for an 18 year old “wonderkid”. I also competed at the 2019 Isle of Man TT finishing 16th in both races. For a number of reasons life is not an easy road but am proud of what I have done post injury.
