Mood: ready for the beach.

I have an attachment on the foot plate ,it is called a freewheel and it takes the front casters out of play by lifting them off the ground .I then put BMX pegs on the front wheel and light pressure on the pegs let me steer. Not very quick yet but will be working on it .Would be better if there was not a pond full of duck poo directly down wind while im learning to ride the chair:roll:

Mood: ATGATT! Armor up!

looked great! I swear, with you, and the ski-buggy by Keiron, we gotta get ya the attention of the Wounded Warrior project, or other similar veterans rehab related organizations. I know a few vets who said that the ski-chair at the resort was just about the only thing that made them feel like a whole human again, and I gotta believe there is opportunity here for more joy in their lives.

Keep inspiring!

Tide? What's a tide? Man, it's 1000 miles to any ocean.

Can I have a go ?

I've been eyeing up this trolley cart at work and wondering if I could use it in a carpark somewhere. It's got to be worth it for the footage.
