    When I first got my wheelchair, my best friend and I went to a wedding. The ceremony was on the grass and I thought my chair was good. As my friend began to push me, the wheels immediately sank and y chair tipped all the way back. It was a mess and completely mortifying to say the least.

    Has this ever happened to you? What are some recommendations do you have for taking on the grass?

    Frankie Frankie Frankie,

    I just scrolled on this and laughed out loud. I’ve been in quite a few weddings and what you describe has never happened to me, but that is something that definitely would.

    I know I’m a jerk but LOLOLOLOL

    My wife’s chair is one of the big fancy powered chairs with the tall tires. Does ok on grass as long as it’s dry. Even a little dew present and the slightest hill and it just won’t go in grass. It is een trying to find wider wheels for it but can’t so I’m going to have to make some. Lol
