I have an idea.

Keep in mind this is just an idea, I don't know how to go about arranging it or even what limitations, or rules we would have to follow, etc.

Anyway I have this idea to get a group of us together and take out special needs kids on some of the trails so that they might enjoy it like we all do. I know that it could only be on some of the easy trails but none the less. I think it would be a good thing to do.

Does anyone have any input? Or ideas?

I think it's a great idea but there could be some pretty serious liability issues.

I saw a vidio of a group doing that on a part of the Rubicon trail. Sounded like a great idea! But there is the liability issue. That puts a damper on so many things.

Maybe it could be done through some help orginization so we were under their policy?

I was thinking under an organization, and also have some kind of wavers just to cover our own butts.

Fantastic idea, those kids need these things to feel included and what kid doesn't love driving into adventures?

When you go offroad as a group don't you often make a day of it and bring a lunch? An offroad picnic sounds like fun for the kids and you folks.

Pepsi has a thing going,
Current Leaders - Pepsi Refresh Project

I vote daily for projects like yhis one....

yeah bring your own lunch and beer if that is your beverage of choice. You know we could get big with this here in Tucson. Can you say vendors? Maybe get Pepsi locally, on board to supply drinks. Maybe a vendor like crossed up off road to supply something or maybe ballistic fabrication. Or just maybe vendors to cover fuel cost and we could do this like once every 3 months or so. I would be in especially if we could get vendors to cover fuel cost since that is the biggest expense involved in wheeling. Well after you buy the rig and make it near perfect.

So if anyone is really interested in this and want to help iron out details maybe we could all meet up for lunch or something one day to have a convo about it.
