    Quite a few folks I have met while traveling, or at the last FTU DC, urged me to abandon FT and move over here.

    I haven't been active on FT much lately, and have spent most of my internet social activity on a few FB travel groups.

    I'm 25, a Delta Diamond, consultant and owner of a new website designed to open the world to people with wheelchairs or who have other mobility challenges. I was involved in a very serious car accident at the end of 2012, became a triple amputee in November 2013, and re-entered the skies in January 2014. Since then, I've circled the globe 8 or 9 times and have regained all of my former status.

    I look forward to contributing to the discussions here and seeing how I can fit in with the community. For any FT converts, I am DeltaWings over there.

    Cheers,

    John

    Welcome. Circled the globe 8-9 times in little over a year? That is very impressive. Look forward to your valuable contributions.

    Welcome John. I like FT but it just seems like overload or polluted to me. I think you'll like Milepoint better. It would be good to get some perspective from a person with physical challenges. I would imagine airplanes are not easy to navigate for you.

    Welcome, MP it just like FT with a kinder view. I run into both when in the skies.

    The great thing is sharing ideas, and running into some on the road...

    MP does have nicer FTU facilities,

    Have a safe trip..glad to see you on board.
