For those interested, here's a video of a quadriplegic driving his van. He explains everything very thoroughly. He has the same dexterity and movement as I do. This setup is a dream for me because driving is, well, amazing. It greatly expands your independence. Unfortunately a vehicle with hand controls costs around $80k.

Linky.

Is this a competition? Because I gave more than Ken.

First - thank you very much, Peter.

Second - yes, it's a major competition. smile

As a side sad note.... This afternoon I found out that there's literally no organizations for adults that require assistance purchasing a van; there's lots for children though. I was told that the reason for this is a van is considered an extravagance rather than a necessity. Yup.... even organizations that *should* have a semblance of understanding about the importance that a vehicle plays in someone like myself having a quality of life. Without a van, I literally can't leave my small city. That means no doctors appointments, no more camping, no more concerts, no outings with friends and family ect. etc. etc. Sooooooooo frustrating hearing that "assistance groups" comprised solely of able-bodied people call a vehicle for a disabled person a luxury. Effing Eff.

Sorry. Rant over

If you get the van, can you please call it "Bernie Vanders", seeing as how it will have been brought to you through collective, socialist effort?

How many miles on that Dodge Caravan. Dodge should be very proud of what they accomplished with that vehicle. We need to highlight this van's longevity and get the story picked up internationally. Maybe Dodge could do a feature. Any suggestions for a hashtag?

There's only 180,000 kilometers (checked yesterday). The reason there's so few is because I've been bedridden more than I've been up. I also took VERY good care of it.

Thanks for your generosity and ideas, Chris.
