Which would be more difficult for you: never being able to move/travel using your legs again, or never being able to travel in a rolling or flying vehicle (including a wheelchair) again?

So all of you are telling me you would rather walk EVERYWHERE over not having legs? Give me a break

Dumb question. If you can't ride a wheelchair, does that mean I have prosthetic legs or I can walk?

Love walking, but Austin isn't walkable enough. I could move to New York or San Francisco probably. It would be a long walk to get there.

I would want to keep my legs because I would hate to have to use a scooter my whole life to get around small places.
(P.S) I like to run sometimes.

As much as not having use of my legs would kill me, not being able to go anywhere further than I can walk would just be too restrictive. Maybe if I could move somewhere with lots of accessible things within walking distance first, I would be OK.

Traveling (by airplane) is quite a regular part of my life, so I don't know what I would do without that.

Keep the legs and just trade the car in for a horse. Easy peasy, and just put a subwoofer in the back and you're set

No traveling with wheels would be difficult but I think not being able to walk would be more emotionally difficult!

I don't have a car and I do not have the money to fly anywhere so I already walk or ride the bus everywhere I go unless I get a ride with someone.

So walking everywhere for the rest of my life(can't drive or fly) or not being able to walk(but can use cars and airplanes)?!
Do people just not understand the question?

Altogether lost? Regardless, I believe the answer is "Yes". However, we'd have to forfeit conventional chairs for something that looks more like large cups, that we'd kind o' have to pour ourselves into/out of... :-/

So you could only travel from home as far as you could walk! Stores available? People in cars and wheel chairs can work and travel! Think!

If you can't walk, there are all sorts of handicap aids you can use to still get around. But without cars, planes etc. you are really stuck in one place. I'll keep my wheels.

No vehicles would mean moving closer to a big enough town to have a grocery store within walking distance. I'd just as soon lose my legs as live in town. I can modify an ATV to be a wheelchair and be fine.

Yeah, I thought I could trade legs to keep wheels. Hoverchair then. Incentive to invent one. Hovercraft don't technically fly, they just float on a cushion of air. In fact, LTA craft (blimps) don't fly either, they float. Rethinking this...
