In this eighth video in our series about getting around in a wheelchair in different metropolitan areas, you’ll find Aaron using a wheelchair in Dallas, Texas, where he explores the public transportation scene. Aaron Baker is a spinal cord injury survivor for over 19 years and he wants to help others get out and explore!

In this video from Shield HealthCare’s Spinal Cord Injury Lifestyle Specialist, watch Aaron discover Dallas, Texas. To get to Dallas, Aaron rented a car in Houston with added hand-controls. On his way, he drops by an old friend’s house and finds some other vehicles to drive. The following morning, he takes the TRE train into downtown Dallas. Once there, he checks out the Perot Museum and drops by the Sixth Floor Museum. Then it’s time to take the light rail to some lunch! Aaron also experiences a Mobility in the City first with a small accident, before heading to the AT&T stadium for some Motocross.

This video focuses on Aaron using a wheelchair in Dallas, but we want to know: where should he head to next? Let us know in the comments!

I have a trip coming up and I am having trouble envisioning how I can safely and hygienically self-catheterize in a typical men’s restroom stall.
Travel can be intimidating with all the unknown variables, especially when it comes to using bathroom facilities that may be less accessible, unkempt and under-equipped. My best defense against this is a strong offense, meaning preparation!
