Whoa, this has been a challenging winter. But I see signs of a thaw in next week’s forecast. The start of our trip is only 7 weeks away, with a tentative start date of Saturday, April 18th from Times Square. Before that I have to see how far the scooter will go on a single charge of the internal lead battery and external lithium battery. I also have to take a trip to Philadelphia to prove to myself I can do these daily trips and to trouble-shoot the support vehicle plan. There is still too much ice and snow, and salt on the roads, around here to head out on a long trip, but I hope I can get a mileage test in by Monday or Tuesday. I also have to plan a meeting with Pride Mobility in PA to see about picking out a scooter for the trip. Maybe sometime next week.
