Rhonda and I had a grand adventure today. I was off so I met her at her house and went to work with her to see how she uses her TravelScoot there.
We loaded both our scoots in her Honda CRV and drove to a downtown parking garage. From there we scooted to the Governmental Building. We went up and down several ramps (I'll explain more about how that worked in future posts), rode on the elevators several times, and made lots of new friends.
I wish I'd thought to get a picture of the waiter trying out her scoot. To say he was enjoying himself would be an understatement.
After work we went on a quest for TravelScoot-compatible accessories. The Honda motorcycle store had nothing interesting, but Walmart had a basket with handles that Rhonda bought and will fill us in on how it works out. When I was loading my scoot back into her vehicle I did something weird and got the battery stuck. I don't think I could reproduce what I did, but we both think it happened for a reason because a nice man who was walking by asked if he could help. It turns out that his wife has MS, and isn't at the point where she needs a scooter yet, but he said he likes to be on the lookout for things that could help her when the time comes.
Back at Rhonda's house I helped get her set up to post comments to the blog and to get the pictures off her digital camera. I suspect you guys are going to be hearing a lot more from her.
The picture with this post was taken by a man who was using HIS camera to take a picture of us. Go figure.
