Kendall Noble is curious, athletic, very smart and loves to meet new people. He has autism and getting to know him is amazing. Kendall has always exhibited many classic autistic behaviors which can be odd and off-putting to people who have not been exposed to kids on the autistic spectrum. He has a lot of friends with similar disabilities and with the same underlying goodness that is a pleasure to be with. There is a big reward for those who accept some behavioral differences and get to know these remarkable people.

This second installment of The Tactile Traveler features reporter Nick Isenberg visiting the Braille Trail on Independence Pass, plus we learn about the National Federation of the Blind Convention and a reporter from the Philippines tells us how blind people survive typhoons.

In 1999, Polly Letofsky decided to be the first woman to walk around the world. It was a five year journey that took her across 22 countries walking an average of 16 miles per day and raising $250,000 for breast cancer awareness. Polly shares about this experience and her book, 3 M.P.H., at Basalt Regional Library on Saturday, October 25, at 5pm.

"Nicky News" Isenberg provides a unique perspective on travel. Applying journalistic skills acquired while Nick could still see, "The Tactile Traveler" seeks to empower blind and low vision people to explore the world and help the sighted to see the world in a new way. Topics include the Second Annual Six Dot Dash, assessing avalanche damage in the White River National Park, self-driving cars for the blind, and riding the trolley through Denver.

Colorado lawmakers are giving the nod to a bill that requires all drivers to carry chains or snow tires - or have all-wheel or four-wheel drive - if they're traveling the interstate between Dotsero and Morrison from September to June.

Many Coloradans on their way to the tourist mecca of Moab have seen a ramshackle cluster of buildings just off Interstate 70. Some stop to look around, amazed by the isolation. But the few poeple who live there prefer it that way. Molly Marcello with community radio station KZMU in Moab takes us to Cisco, Utah, which, in its own way, is bracing for another busy tourist season.
