An Adventure from Vicki in New Zealand

Dear Elizabeth,

I love your blog and look forward to getting all the notifications of news.

I have just come back from a Mobility Scooter Rally organised by the Hastings, Napier and Flaxmere Age Concerns.

Our scooters were all taken this morning early to Napier,(the Art Deco city of the world) which is in Hawke’s Bay on the eastern coast of the North Island of New Zealand. Last year there were over twenty of us but there were not so many this year. All the scooters are the big four wheelers, so I lent mine to someone else and decided to take my Travelscoot. It behaved like an angel. Many people enquired about it. We travelled on the Rotary footpath with the sea and the wide sweep of the Bay on our left. The weather was perfect and when we got to the finish we had a sausage sizzle. (sort of a hot dog but the dog is much bigger and more tomato or brown sauce than a hot mustard; wrapped in a slice of bread not a roll)

You may notice I have a Peterborough basket on my scoot. It is very handy and I got all the idea and info from you !!!

One thing though, is there any advice on how to pack the Travelscoot into the bag ? I get in a terrible muddle.

I will get back to you if I have any more adventures.

All the best,

Hawke’s Bay.
New Zealand


  1. Vicki,

    That sounds like a lot of fun, I think we need to organize a Mobility Scooter Rally here in the states.


  2. That does look like fun, I am jealous :)

  3. Oh my!
    I used to live in the Hawke's Bay, but didn't need a scooter back then.

    That must have been glorious! It almost makes me want to go back and visit JUST so I can use my scoot to explore around the place :-)

    (However, then I remember how long that flipping plane ride is, and think maybe I'll just use my imagination LOL!)
