How To: Rolling Through A Snow Bank In A Wheelchair (tutorial)

This is another very quick tutorial on how to roll through a snow bank in a wheelchair. It’s pretty simple, you just approach the snow bank in your wheelchair, do a wheelie, and plow right through it while riding the wheelie. I will warn that this should only be done by professionals at wheelies though because the snow banks many times are slippery due to ice and riding a wheelie through ice is very dangerous. During the winter, snow is the one of the biggest problems for people in wheelchairs. Many of us struggle to get by simply because we have snow blocking the way to a car, a grocery store, or outside in general. If you get stuck outside in a large snow bank and have no other options, this strategy will certainly do the job. Many of my wheelchair tutorials seem short and simple, and they are, but keep in mind there are those who are new to being in a wheelchair and they often times may need simple tutorials like these ones. I have another tutorial on how to get through the snow, but I wanted to do this one even though it’s similar because it shows specifically one of the strategies of getting past the snow (particularly snow banks on sidewalks). I hope someone in a wheelchair will find this tutorial helpful. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.

Biggest Reason To Check Out Richclashchair ASMR!

Soooo….just letting you know that I have this other YouTube channel called Richclashchair ASMR and I think it’s pretty amazing! If you like video games, check it out, if you like ASMR, check it out, if you like roleplay….what are you waiting for already?! I’m starting out with The Legend Of Zelda as a starting point. Along the way I’ll be throwing in some Final Fantasy, maybe some Mario Bros. and really just anything else you guys request. This has been a passion project idea of mine for quite some time now so yeah, I’m really excited (and a little bit nervous) to build this channel. I think honestly one of the main reasons I started a roleplay/gaming/asmr channel is simply because I love to relax and also tell stories. If this isn’t your interest, honestly that’s okay, it’s mine. But if you really do like all these things combined (gaming, roleplay, and asmr) then trust me you will LOVE this channel! It will be an action packed, romance involved, expectation twister. So now that I’ve told you the biggest reason (or rather reasons) why you should check out my new channel, Richclashchair ASMR, what I would like you to do is go over there, watch a few videos, and leave some comments so I know you watched them.

How To: Braking On An Older Model Wheelchair (tutorial)

Just another quick wheelchair tutorial on how to brake on an older model wheelchair. Before you say it’s too simple to be a tutorial, you need to understand that I cater to wheelchair bound people of all ability levels. Some people do not know how to brake in a wheelchair because they simply may be new to one or maybe have less brain functioning that requires this type of education. So in this How To tutorial I teach you the absolute basics of braking in a wheelchair. First the right side, then the left. It’s really very simple. Those who need this tutorial can go back and watch it over again as many times as needed so they can get it right. Keep in mind that some wheelchairs have the brake controls inverted where you pull inward to lock it. This is an older model wheelchair so the brakes are not inverted so it’s pretty simple. If you have an inverted brake wheelchair just apply the same methods in this tutorial only the opposite directions and that should do it. If you happen to have brakes that don’t work either way, then I don’t know what to tell you, this How To tutorial is for basic brakes. Brakes are important for making sure the wheelchair doesn’t roll away, especially with you in it. It would be dangerous if you had a wheelchair but didn’t know how to brake.

Huge Announcement: Second Channel!

I’m sooooo incredibly excited to share this huge announcement with you guys, I started a second channel!! Don’t worry, I will still be vlogging on this channel, but I wanted to start a new passion project. My second channel is an ASMR roleplay channel based off of video games such as The Legend Of Zelda currently and moving into Final Fantasy, Mario Bros, and other games. ASMR stands for Autonomous Sensory Meridian Response and is that oh so good tingly feeling you get on your head and down your spine from triggers such as audio and visual stimulation. ASMR is also helpful in aiding sleep and stress reduction as many of the triggers used in the therapy are stress reducing and relaxing. I’ve been watching ASMR videos for over a year now almost every night because I sometimes get stressed and can’t sleep some nights, it’s difficult for me. I decided to add a gaming twist to it because honestly I love YouTube roleplays and I’ve had some pretty epic video game story lines stuck in my head for the last ten years or so. My second channel so far only has a few videos on it, but monthly I’ll be adding about three or so new videos so you’ll definitely want to stick around and watch for them to come! If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.

How To: Getting Through Snow In A Wheelchair (tutorial)

Here’s another small tutorial. This one is on how to get through the snow in a wheelchair. This How To tutorial video is very basic. It teaches you several different ways and options to handle a snow bank on a sidewalk or curb. Many people who happen to be in a wheelchair do not know how to do these kinds of things, and that is exactly why I have How To videos for them. Snow can be very difficult for someone while is in a wheelchair. Many people do not realize just how difficult it can be. If it snows and someone doesn’t shovel, well it can pretty much be game over at that point as far as traveling goes. Sometimes a walkway may be shoveled, but all too often that snow gets piled up right on the edge of a sidewalk curb. This is where things get particularly frustrating for people in wheelchairs. It’s a nice thought to have a sidewalk shoveled, but many people either don’t finish the job, or cars going by push up a snow bank right where the curbs are. In this How To tutorial I teach you what to do if you encounter these basic problems during a harsh winter. Make sure the snow bank is hard like ice to roll over if you have good traction on your wheels, otherwise just find the weak spot and plow right through it as hard as you can. Just make sure you have a plan B in case you can’t get through a basic snow bank. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.

Unboxing Acqua Di Gio by Georgio Armani (vlog)

Unboxing my Acqua Di Gio by Georgio Armani was a really fun video to do. I just bought it this week and have been waiting to do this video before trying it on officially. Aqua Di Gio is a strong scent that will last you around seven hours, but I personally have found that the actual smell can last in small quantities for over a day and a half so it is definitely something to be very careful with. Also, if you spray Acqua Di Gio on your neck, you’ll find out that if it rubs against your shirt, or hoodie, or jacket then your clothing will smell like the product. Georgio Armani is a genius I suppose because I don’t know many people who could create such a powerful product that people will still buy for over two decades. Anyway, unboxing videos are actually some of my favorite videos to do. It’s fun to open products for the first time fresh out of the package and show you first hand what the product is like. I may end up doing more unboxing videos in the future if this one goes well. What are some of your favorite unboxing videos? I really enjoy watching these types of videos here on YouTube and I hope that I was able to appropriately give you the information you were looking for about this product. If you have any questions about this product that I may have left out of the video, please feel free to comment in the comment section below.

My Christmas Haul for 2016 is a nice one this year that you won’t want to miss watching! I got many things for Christmas, including money to spend. A few of my favorite Christmas haul 2016 gifts included Aqua Di Gio by Georgio Armani, my new leather jacket, and a really niiiiice hoodie. Let’s talk about these three things for a quick minute. Aqua Di Gio is your all around sexy men’s scent that will get all the ladies. It comes in a very nice fog colored bottle and smells divine. It’s got a citrus smell with a salty sea breeze finish and is recommended use during warm weather or at night. Use it at parties and dates. My black leather jacket is your classic black leather jacket. It’s got a nice biker bad boy look to it and because of its popularity, design, and color, it pretty much goes with everything. Wear it in cold or chilly weather, or simply to make a classic fashion statement. My grey and orange hoodie has a nice gun metal grey line disign built in, and differring tones of grey. It’s very sleek and fits my body like a glove. Not too padded, but will be a great choice for chilly fall or spring weather and has a nice clean look. Anyway, that is my Christmas haul for 2016, I hope you all enjoyed the video. If you liked this video please thumbs it up and share it, thank you.
