|A wheelie's delight - high and wild|

Not long after that I went on my first overnight camping trip. It was a truly moving experience to be able to wake up in the tent in the middle of the forest. For many years we kept improving the vehicle we called the TrailRider. Each time we went on an extended hike we would come up with a list of innovations we wanted for our next device. We would solve one problem but inevitably create other problems. It took many years to achieve the remarkable "Black Diamond" that is now being used around the world.
It gives me great pleasure to see that others are experiencing the wilderness using the "Black Diamond". And how amazing that Australia is becoming a real hotbed of TrailRider use thanks in large part to the enthusiasm and capability of David Stratton. Although I have not been involved with the program for many years I certainly enjoy seeing how people are using it to make their lives and the lives of others better.
