Helpful Resources

Welcome to the page with all the resources I’ve talked about in one place. If I’ve talked about it, it’s likely here. I do have a post I made with links I have found helpful, which you can find here, if you haven’t seen it already.

FAA Criteria for Portable Oxygen Concentrators

This link is also posted elsewhere, but I thought it’d be a good thing to have on this quick reference page. This is the United State Department of Transportation page with all of the rules regulations, and lists of acceptable devices. See if yours (or the one your looking at) fits the criterion for airplane rides.

If you’re looking for something that I don’t talk about–different areas of the country, different disabilities, etc…? Well, you’ve also come to the right page. I’ve found some helpful sites that are packed full of information. Check them out 🙂 If you have any you think would be a good addition, feel free to reach out.

Disabled Hikers

This non-profit is run by others with disabilities to advocate, build community, and make the outdoors accessible to everyone. They hold events and provide resources, like group hikes and trail guides respectively. At the time of writing, the focus of their guides is Washington, Oregon, California, and Idaho. If you’re in any of these areas or going to be there on vacation, check them out.

Accessible Nature: A Trail Guide for Disabled Hikers

This is a New York Times article written by the founder of Disabled Hikers and talks both about what accessibility mean on the trails and gives information on specific trails in their area. It is well written and informative.

White Blaze: A Community of Appalachian Trail Enthusiasts

This is a free, open forum type site. The goal of it’s contributors is to share information related to the Appalachian Trail. There are some posts about other hikers with different disabilities. If you’re looking to do give that trail a try, check it out.

A Hike with Disabled Hikers was an Eye-Opening Experience

A blog that asks some good questions and brings up some good points that non-disabled hikers may not think about. I do speak about this in my own way, so it fits in well here, but it could be a good share if someone you know could use a little more insight.
