A 7-mile hike with a 1,000-foot elevation gain was on the schedule for our second day of camping at Point Mugu State Park near Malibu, California.
I was with our small Boy Scout Troop 911, which operated out of my elementary school in Huntington Beach. It was a bonding experience for the dads and boys that went along, this upcoming hike even more so.
For the average person, the hike would’ve been a moderate challenge. But for someone with Duchenne muscular dystrophy who used a small, blue scooter with rubber wheels, it seemed impossible.
