    You could pull your wheelchair behind you but it adds a lot of weight for a long trip.

    So it is clamped off and will only drain when you are in the grass?

    Now that I use a Dragonfly, so I can just pop it off my chair and head in to the restroom. It's pretty nice for getting around town and stuff as well.

    This is one of the times that I appreciate that I now have a mitrofanoff, though, as I can be like one of the guys and just pull up behind a bush (this is what I do when kayaking) if I'm not near a restroom.
    Does the front wheel spin out much on you?
