The Disabled Traveler's Companion





 Ron and Kay were born and raised in Lapeer, Michigan.  As their family was growing up they traveled around the country taking in the many attractions this country has to offer especially the national parks. With their travel experiences and Ron now being in a wheelchair did not stop their traveling but they had to make some adjustments. The family has traveled throughout the United States, with overnight stays in some very unique places. Their lodgings have ranged from hotels to tents in a campsite in the national parks. Travel experiences with their, sons, and grandsons, they decided to also pursue the exciting concept of travel for people with disabilities and age related difficulties.  Through the years there were changes regarding accessibility ... new laws were being implemented to meet the travel needs of people with disabilities but  they discovered that much of this information was not getting into the hands of the people who could benefit from it the most - travelers with disabilities and age related difficulties.  

            Ron and Kay will not judge since it may be good for Ron and not good for someone else, or the other way around.  The photographs will try and expose as much as possible so everyone viewing The Disabled Traveler’s website will be able to draw his or her own conclusion.
