Lessons Learned

From Dean:

As my TravelScoot looks out the window at Hong Kong Bay I am reminded that I learn something everyday while traveling. Coming into Singapore, ANA Airlines made it difficult and made me use a wheelchair. United Airlines on the flight out of Singapore to Hong Kong was cooperative and I rode my scooter right to the plane and it was quickly brought to me at Hong Kong plane side. I rode perhaps a mile (could never have walked it in my best days) to the Passport control, accompanied by a woman with a wheelchair who thought I would want to ride in it. When I got there they rushed me through customs, got my bag, and 5 minutes later I was in the hotel van heading to my hotel in Hong Kong. The lithium battery finally wore down from going through the Singapore and Hong Kong airports and was showing yellow so I have seen what it can do.

Today I head into China so this should be interesting. I will keep you posted.

  1. Dean your traveling stamina amazes me. I hope all goes well in Hong Kong.

    How many miles do you think the battery lasted? I haven't ever rode long enough to drain either of the lithium batteries to amber light stage.

    Did they give you any trouble about the lithium battery?
