At The Dyrt, we share camping tips from our community of campers and campgrounds. With so many campers staying home, we continue to share this info so you can plan future camping trips across the U.S.

We all face challenges in the outdoors. But physical disabilities can present an extra layer of challenge that prevents people from enjoying trails, campgrounds, and wide open spaces. The TerrainHopper is here to change that.

The TerrainHopper helps those with mobility challenges tackle terrain that might otherwise be inaccessible, like soft sand, deep mud, and rocky earth. Founder Todd LeMay grew up just twenty minutes from the beach in Maine. But because he relies on a wheelchair, he was never able to get out on the beach without the help of others.

“I wanted to build something that people could use to get out and go hiking with their friends, get out on the beach, and enjoy things that everybody else can enjoy,” he told FOX10 News.

TerrainHopper Makes Camping and Hiking More Accessible

The TerrainHopper is available in two models; the Overlander 4ZS and the Overlander Mini. Both come with two speed modes; 4 mph for “extreme off-roading” including rocks, snow, and sand, and 12mph for less-demanding terrain.

The anthology was definitely a scam to get her parents to buy a bunch of anthologies, but she's still pretty proud of her panda poem. When she's not at her computer, she's (hopefully) outside, hiking or camping with her dog.
