GA Guide debuts resource list

Here some of the more handy websites I've found while blogging on travel for people with disabilities. My hope is that eventually it may evolve into a somewhat comprehensive guide to finding the info you need out there on the web. This is very much a work in progress. Have a suggestion? Know another good site? Let me know at darrenhillock@yahoo.com.
Don't forget the other travel by those with disabilities bloggers, who are listed in the blogroll in the sidebar on the main page. All are highly recommended! (photo by Missy Red Boots via morguefile.com)
