                              BULLETIN BOARD

Our new bulletin board has been up and running for about a month now but
unfortunately we have had very few people using it.  From our email we
thought it was something that would be useful.  We would appreciate your input.



WILDERNESS INQUIRY:  The non-profit organization that provides high quality
outdoor adventures for people of all ages and abilities now  also offers an
"Accessibility Guide to Minnesota Parks" on their site.

Accessible Tokyo - This on-line guide provides access information about
hotels, shopping, museum, transportation and other useful information.

NATIONAL OXYGEN TRAVEL SERVICE - NO2TS can make arrangements for traveling
patients who are dependent on medical oxygen or any type of medical
equipment. They have the capability to do this worldwide.

INDEPENDENT LIVING CENTERS - This is a lists of centers throughout the US
plus some in Canada and the countries of Western Europe. Although most of
them are not involved in tourism can be good resources such things as
transportation and resources in their communities


Due to the holidays and the fact that we will be away for a week attending
the Second World Congress on Disabled Travel we do not have the usual volume
of new information.  Will try to make up for it next month.
