I was QUITE careful to list only caches I though could be accessed from a wheelchair. Yes, a handicapped person may need some help actually putting hands on the cache - some of which require bending over or reaching out as they are on the ground - but I think that each cache I mentioned is about as accessible as you can make a cache.
MainelyRoses stated that she could "walk very short distances", which I took into consideration when I cited the caches I did. Let me reiterate:
"The Puzzle of Ben's Bum" is within 1 foot of the wheels of a wheelchair.
"The Big Box of Books" is 10 feel from where you can go on a wheelchair - and I mentioned that it was "a couple of feet" away.
"X Marks the Spot" can be within 2 feet of a wheelchair. Yes, someone may have to stand up to get to it, but no walking is required.
"South Solon Meeting House Micro" can be accessed from a wheelchair - if it can go across 20 feet of lawn.
And as for the caches Jake mentioned:
China Lake Micro is definitely wheelchair accessible.
Fort Halifax? Well, you have to reach down but the cache is within 1 foot of a wheelchair
Benton Riverside is 2 feet from a VERY nice recreational trail
Oter Limits? Well, you have to be able to stand and reach, but you do not have to walk.
Sheesh! We're trying to be helpful and you're being critical.
