Hay Richard !
Well I have no experience,rv-ing,while disabled. It seems to me being willing to get out there,is a great start!!
I have noticed,a lot of national parks,are very accessible,both,in the campgrounds,and at the major sights. Most hold a small number of camp sights,for first come bases.
There are a lot of good people here at FRF,I'll bet there are some out there with experience,specific to you're adventure!
Best I can tell ya is ,be adaptable, and MOST IMPORTANTLY......Have Phun !!

The stomach,by far... If you are anything like me,we are used to a good a## chewing, occasionally. No amount of DWs rath will stop the twist in the gut.
It will be better when you get her" truck" back . : trunk 39:

Richard welcome to the crazy pond iPhone the phat phrogs. If you have posted on here sorry if I missed it.

I don't know much about camping being disabled.

I think it is awesome thay you are getting out there enjoying retirement and having phun.

I would however make sure you have a good cover for your personal set of wheels and a way to lock it up.

Unfortunately not everyone these days are honest and smart enough to know that this is something that you need.

As stated by someone else have fun and enjoy.

Happy camping

Elind. OUCH! That really blows. I just happy for your dw that it was you to put the first blemish than her.

Still sorry that it happened. Biggest thing with it is that no one was hurt. Except a little pride

Good Morning PHroggies. Made it home safe and sound on Sunday morning. Still recuperating! That was long haul, 22hrs on the road, with a 4hr stopover at a Walmart in Corbin, KY. Lost a good 2-3hrs sitting in traffic. Also found out, my black tank flush line froze and cracked over the winter, I'm guessing it's at the valve. Should be a fairly easy fix, but I'm waiting on some warmer weather later this week before I attempt it.

Elind - Hate to hear about the truck! DW had her '12 Odyssey less than 400 miles before it was hit, 11k damage, and most of it was the airbags! It was repaired like new, but she couldn't wait to trade it in. Hang in there!

Chicky - House is looking good!

RB - Just a few weeks until Tadpole!

Turbs - 'Sup?

Elind, she won't hurt you too bad cause she would have to drive you to the hospital in her ambulance!!

House is looking more and more like a home on the inside! All the interior doors were hung yesterday, along with all the window sills! I love how the sills turned out! Since the walls were done with 2x6's instead if the 2x4's, the sills are a bit wider.....perfect size! Today they will finish the baseboards, and my cupboard for over the fridge should be in, so that can go up then set the fridge in place. Propane guy just called, and is on his way to bring the tank and hook us up! Carpet goes in on the 16th, and that is the night I plan to move in!!
