Let's get the page views out of the way first. We bloggers hold page views very close to our hearts. They are a token of the mark we have made in the world - how many people's attention we have got. It's all a bit self-serving really but I can side step because this is not primarily about me but rather about the TrailRider.
The first 10,000 took 4 years to March 2014. The next 10,000 took 5 months to August. This 10,000 took 4. Things are ramping up.
Now for those NSW chairs.
Parks NSW has bought three chairs and the launch took place on Tuesday. They had been hanging out for the State Minister to have space in his schedule but finally decided to publish and be damned. Sadly the woman at NSWP who made it all happen, Christina Bullivant, could not be there but Michael Wright, the head of parks was. Also the Jones family about whom we will hear much more in the New Year. For now just take a peek at Have Wheelchair Will Travel to see why.

Two of the TrailRiders will be permanently assigned to Dorrigo National Park and Kamay Botany Bay National Park, closer to the city. The third will "float" but Christina just took it down to Kosciuszko where it will be for a while.
Check the Directory for all contact details. As with all the other chairs these will be free to use.
