Transport

And today – video!!! With music!!!
As we saw yesterday, I have all kinds of nifty equipment to help me. This has to be the biggest, though!

When you use a wheelchair, you realise that not only do you have to get around in the chair, you have to find ways of getting the chair to places too.

We did manage with our car for quite a while, with me transferring to the front seat and Ian using ramps to put the chair in the back of it. It was hard work for both of us. Transferring was becoming more and more difficult for me, and Ian having to manoeuvre a chair that weighs 350lb into the car was always on the dodgy side.

Then some planets aligned and we were able to get this van. Going out is now safe and comfortable for both of us!
