Michael von Ruecker, webmaster of Cebu on Wheels, created this site to assist disabled people traveling to Cebu, Philippines.

From your hometown airport, to halfway around the world, Mike can help. If he does not know the answer, he will help you look for someone who does. http://cebuonwheels.tripod.com/

3. CAMPING UNLIMITED

Camping Unlimited sponsors six unique travel camp sessions for teens and adults with Developmental Disabilities. These camping trips are based out of Santa Cruz County area and tour different California state parks and other interesting places in California and Nevada. Trips are 8 to 12 days each, and participants must be able to hike at least 4-5 miles per day and have good self skills and good social skills. These trips are popular, so participants need to arrange for these trips at least 3-6 months in advance. Experienced guides and trained counselors (3:1 ratio) lead the trips. At this time, the trip fee is $97.50 per day. A residential summer camp in Santa Cruz County is also available. To learn more, visit www.campingunlimited.com

5. CAN I GET IN

Sue Venables, a power chair user residing in a small village near Doncaster, South Yorkshire, UK, had a great idea. Frustrated with the lack of access knowledge for her area, she decided to do her own access survey of the towns of Barnsley, Doncaster, Sheffield and Rotherham. Her new website Can I Get In is the result of her visiting a variety of pubs, restaurants, restaurants and shops and listing the access features. Sue is just starting out with her project, so this will be an expanding resource. Visit Can I Get In at http://www.canigetin.co.uk/index.html
