Up Up and Away in my beautiful Chevy Van!
The hand controls and motorized seat are safely installed, and the van arrived in the driveway on Saturday (thanks to our friend Mick).
I'm starting small, those hand controls can be tricky. It is possible to brake and accelerate simultaneously. This means I can still peel rubber should the occasion seem appropriate, but it makes for a hairy ride should someone pull out unexpectedly and you push down (accelerate) instead of away (braking). I practiced for about half an hour in the library parking lot before driving on the road. I took Oscar to supper :-}
I'll drive again on Wednesday. I want to see how my stomach muscles respond before driving too far.
Anyway, I can go do stuff again!!!!!
