disabled, yearning for outdoors

im a disabled hikineet. i have to use mobility aids and usually have to take a rest day after going outside so i don't do it very often out of convenience and desire to not be in pain constantly. does anyone have any tips on motivating myself to get out more and/or reducing the pain when i do go out? thanks 🙂

    bruv if you were my friend I would definitely help you. maybe you can get some people on board?

    I don't know any details obviously but I enjoy the outdoors enough to be motivated to help move a friend along to join in the fun.

        You shouldn't ever feel ashamed of your disability especially not if you're willing to give something a try knowing that it will be harder for you. Anyone who complains about you being slow is a fucking loser and I'd punch the fag.

    Are there any local groups that do volunteering to get disabled people PrepHole? I know that ski resorts do a thing to get disabled people in sit skis and someone skis with you and holds you. Pretty cool.

    I cut up old mountain bike tires and attached them to the bottom of my crutches with hose clamps to go on short hikes while I had a broken leg. Made it quite a long way but I was young and strong then, they made it very grippy.

    have you thought about going diving OP? less impact and different muscle group than your legs, and you get just as PrepHole

      I was thinking the same thing, water sports could work easily

    there is always the possibility of going with someone else you trust. especially when you ahve trouble with mobility. many wheelchair bound people can find joy in nature when they have another person to help them out.

      OP isn't wheelchair bound, but he does use crutches. I reckon this

      is actually a good option. not because he's not mobile, but pain and recovery time would be mostly mitigated and frankly it's not hard on the others.

    You should pick up bird watching or animal photography.
    We have a "disabled" hunter in our group. He likes to just spend the night in the hunting stand, relaxing and enjoying nature.

      This. Something where you have an activity to do while slowly moving through the woods rather than just racing from point A to point B.
      Painting is another option.

      Car camping might be an option too. A while back, one of my mates fucked himself up pretty badly coming off his motorbike. We didn't want to stop our camping trips but he obviously couldn't keep up with a bunch of broken bones so instead of hiking point to point, we'd drive in and set up camp. Some days we'd head off on day hikes in the area while he stayed near camp painting, other days we'd all just hang out by the beach or whatever.

    Maybe try doing something like going in a boat where exertion isnt too much? a day on the water is a day out.
