A dream come true

In 2011 the TrailRider was launched in the Grampians. Ros and I have carried, since then, the mental picture of the parents with the disabled child who just happened upon the launch and took Mitchell for a spin.

The joy in their faces convinced us that the ideal passenger was a child and more or less immediately saw that the ideal sherpas were the classmates of that child. The team feeling, the shared venture, the young pilot back in the wilderness. There was even an academic journal paper written about this!

There have been forays into this school/TrailRider space but none as convincing as this one, that I hinted at in my post yesterday - the Bournda Environmental Education Centre, in the Bournda National Park in NSW has bought their own TrailRider and here is their story.
