On the pathway

29 Jun


I wanted to try pushing my wheelchair outdoors, so we went to this section of pathway near Edworthy park. A path straight and sloped slightly downhill, so it should be great, right? Not so much. The pathway has a slight sideways slope to it, and I’m not strong enough yet to be able to keep going in a straight line. I needed continual help with steering to avoid rolling off the side of path. After going 300 m, I decided to call it an evening.  This is the farthest I’ve pushed my wheelchair outdoors, so that is a good start.

I think next I will try pushing the chair in an indoor shopping mall. I may have more luck with that.

    A pleasant, interesting view. Good to see you outdoors. I was out myself today, for a “walk” along the Parkway near the Island Park crossing. I’m going to forward you a.thank-you note to my old friend Reiner and his almost-immediate reply. Bye for the momen, Stewart,
