The user is an outdoor person and has hiked and camped countless times. For shorter outings he packs his equipment on the wheelchair. Heavier objects are packed in a bag that is attached under the wheelchair seat, lighter objects are packed in bags that are transported on the backrest and between the user’s legs. The dog, who is often his hiking buddy, gets to carry his own food.

Users comments
Camping is not impossible for people with disabilities, it just takes a bit of extra planning and perseverance. See also Will ut, willut.se (in Swedish) -last checked Maj 2021- or Will ut on Facebook.
