Paraplegic man who made a 2500 km pilgrimage to Santiago

This article may be of interest:

I read an article in our local newspaper about a paraplegic man who made a 2500 km pilgrimage from Wildsteig (Southern Bavaria) to Santiago de Compostela in the northwest of Spain - on his handbike. This story made me curious so I really wanted to know more about it.
Some weeks later, I visited Dietmar Drößler in his secluded house near Wildsteig. As we sat in his rustic, wooden kitchen I was fascinated to hear his fantastic lifestory and the incredible journey through five countries.

This is a great story! I'd like to add it to the one I have of a Hollander, Ad Hermans, who also did 2 500 km from Akersloot, Holland to Santiago in a hand-biked wheelchair in 2000.

In 2002 he went off again, this time to Rome, 2250 km http://www.adhermans.nl/index.html

Very inspiring stuff for people in wheelchairs.
