Charleston with a wheelchair?

My DH and I finally made it down to Charleston about 18 months ago, but unfortunately that was the time of the terrible flooding along the east coast. We had to head home two days after getting there. Last summer was terrible for me, 2 heart attacks so no camping was done. Luckily things are looking up and we would so much love to return to the Charleston area but due to my health will most likely need a wheelchair. I know old cities are notorious for the uneven sidewalks and small streets, etc. Has anyone done Charleston and/or Patriots Point while in a wheelchair. I can stand and walk for a bit but am on oxygen and long jaunts are just not do-able. I know there would be parts of the city that would not be accessible but hopefully we can go back and finish our trip. This has been on our bucket list for a while! Thanks for any help.

Question about Cherrystone in Va.

May be a dumb question but we are looking to make a reservation at Cherrystone Campground this summer and was wondering about the insects. Can someone tell me if the mosquitoes and/or gnats are worse along the waterfront sites than further back in the campground? Thanks for any help!

RE: Best Loop at Assategue

We have been there multiple times..both the State and the National parks. When the winds are coming from the west the bugs are fierce on both sides, bay and ocean. When the winds come from the east the flies/mosquitoes are much more tolerable and stay mostly over the water/grassy areas on the national side (the west side). As for favorite park for camping itself there is only one loop that has electricity and that one fills up a year early. Bath houses have all be refurbished on the state side within the last 2 years. Bath houses on the bay side consist of cold showers, and outhouse type facilities. We didn't use them so not sure exactly how clean/efficient they are. There is a beautiful area on the bay side where you can launch you kayaks or paddle boards. They also have ocean swimming. Oh yea, don't forget the ponies...they all over both sides. Either way, you will fall in love with the place. Have fun!

RE: Need opinion on portable oxygen concentrator

How many L are you on? Will the pulse be ok for you? I researched portable ones for my Mom (pulmonary hypertension/interstitial lung disease/right ventricular heart failure/congestive heart failure) when she was still alive but there were none that could deliver a continuous stream of 6L or more. So, we used tanks on the go and a big concentrator at home. Right now I am on 2.5 liters. I am thinking about the smaller units due to the weight issues. I do know they only give a pulse dose (not continuous) but I think using it to go to the doctor's office, or out for dinner, would be okay for me at this time; also I would be able to travel by myself much easier. Right now getting the larger concentrator(Eclipse) into my car is an exercise in itself. The unit is 18+ pounds and it has to go into the back seat and then feed the hose up to me in the driver seat. Too much of chance of having issues setting it up. The smaller one can sit right next to me up front. At this point it seems the two units I am comparing are similar but are two different makers. I had a Respironic Bipap machine for 10+ years and was very happy with it. Not sure how their oxygen products were though. Thanks for your help.

Need opinion on portable oxygen concentrator

I am thinking about purchasing a small, over the shoulder, portable oxygen concentrator. I have it narrowed down between two different brands. 1) Respironics "Simply go Mini-Portable Concentrator". With the double battery it will weigh about 5-6 pounds. The other contender is: 2) Inogen One G4. Looks to be approximately the same weight. I currently have a Sequal Eclipse 5, but this is a much heavier and larger machine. I am looking for something that I can use to easily get into and out of the car or stores that is not as heavy and cumbersome as the Sequal. Thanks for any recommendations. :)
