Although I have posted a few replies - I suppose I should introduce myself.

I am Steve, 56, an above knee amputee with a 40% use right leg after a car crash in 1996 (the amputation was elective in 1999 after 3 years of trying to fix it and an massive infection). Married with 2 children, grown up and 4 almost 5 grandchildren, and I live in a beautiful bungalow in a small village just outside Grantham.

I drive an automatic car and use manual wheelchairs, a powerchair (with a hoist in the car) and a scooter round the village. I did have a house in Cape Town for 5 years and flew between the 2 countries and in fac t we crised out there initially so have had some experience of travel with the wheelchair. I have used computers for well over 20 years so know what I am doing there. www.stevecattell.com is my home page

Chief gripes are rip off companies making money from our disabilities - baths, showers, scooters etc, double beds instead of twin beds in disabled rooms, and disabled rooms in hotels designed by someone who may have sat in a wheelchair but isn't confined to one.
