Quality of Life hits the road – Part 2!

I’m sure you’re all wondering where this story left off… Read on!

To recap: Travelling has been getting a little difficult – the hotels rooms, the bathrooms, the hours, the eating out all the time. Our solution? A 1997 Winnebago that we’re going to adapt so that we can roll in style!

Ian did some initial work on the interior, and then off it went to Summerland RV Centre to have a really large door fitted.

After that, Ian and Ric got to work – and fitted the lift. And now I’m in the Winnebago! Me and my chair are in the Winnebago! Next? Interior to be fixed up and we will be on the road!

A Beautiful Day!

Every winter my world shrinks. I don’t make it out of the house as much and the weather makes the outdoors inaccessible to me – no snow tires on my wheelchair! If Ian hasn’t shovelled the deck yet, sometimes I can’t make it past the backdoor step – and there’s definitely no way I can get to the front of our house unaided.

Today the sun was shining, the sky was blue, the deck was shovelled! I made it out long enough to take these photos of the trees in the garden and my fluffy children enjoying the little bit of snow that was still on the deck!

An amazingly beautiful day.
