The Argonauts: An Exploration of Life

Man to Travel 200 Miles in Solar-Powered Wheelchair

Haidar Taleb to Travel 200 Miles in Solar-Powered Wheelchair

Here is one of the more unique adventures I’ve seen lately.

Haidar Taleb, the disabled 47-year-old from the United Arab Emirates is about to embark on a 200-mile voyage across the desert in a solar-powered wheelchair which he designed and built himself.  Mr. Taleb says, “With this journey I hope to raise awareness of disability and sustainability as well as what we can achieve as individuals if we have the courage and determination to try.” Which is pretty much what I would have said too; in fact, this is pretty much what I tried to do, except that I had the full use of my legs and my disability was mostly in my head :)
