4 Wheel Bob
4 Wheel Bob tells the story of wheelchair hiker Bob Coomber and his attempt to be the first wheelchair hiker to cross the Sierra Nevada.
Bob, a 60-year-old adventurer, got the nickname because he was regularly spotted muscling his wheelchair up mountains, down rocky gorges and along dusty trails in out-of-the-way places. He has been on virtually every hiking trail in the East Bay Area, and in 2007 he became the first wheelchair hiker to reach the summit of 14,246-foot White Mountain east of the Sierra Nevada.
This story of overcoming obstacles and adversity will inspire people to look at their own self-imposed limitations and perhaps reach beyond what they think is possible.
