Whew! This has been an amazing week or so. He came to me yesterday and asked what I was doing last evening. Well, I've got a teleclass, why? He said his throat was sore from breathing the smoke and would like to get out, get some fresh air, etc. Sure! We can do that. One great thing about doing teleclasses, they can be done ANYwhere!
So, we packed up necessities for the day and headed out. I had a meeting at 3 (by phone) and then the teleclass. Between the two, we were at the beach OR checking out the Trikke! My plan is to get the T12. Riding it is a challenge and FUN!!! Human Powered Vehicle. When you look at it you wonder ~ how does s/he make it go???
We first saw someone riding one on Sunday at the motel. It's funny how that turned out because we'd gotten what we thought was a good deal at another motel and something told me to try the one across the street so, we did. It was only $6 less than the other yet, it was $6 less than the other and the rooms looked the same.
Well, there was a reason to stay there and that was to learn about the Trikke! Steve was riding it in the parking lot that afternoon and as we were going to the beach I asked him about it. He explained it then asked if I wanted to give it a shot. Oh yeah, sure!!! Well, I couldn't get it to move for nuthin'! Not even downhill!
Himself got it moving a bit. I want one!!!
Steve told us about a dealer, so, we went there yesterday. He is a better teacher. Within a few minutes he got me riding down the street; turning around (really badly) and riding back!!! I got to see ~ and ride ~ the various models so I could make a good decision. We had to leave because I had a business call yet, we'll be back. Himself knows which one I want so, He may go back Himself. Ya never know!
We stopped in at Pantera for the class and to have some eats. They make a decent salad.
The beach was BEAUTIFUL!!! I could really live there! This fire has been a pita yet, because we have the time and means to get away and because of places like Pantera with WiFi access, we can still take care of biz.
My throat is hurting already this morning. We just MAY have to head out again. I really could live at Redondo Beach. So many people are SO active there! Roller blading, surfing, body boarding, running up and down the stairs and ramps... so many fit people! I want to BE one of them!
Oh! Received a compliment from Steve mentioned above. Two, actually. He asked my age range and I told him I'm 60 and he said he'd have guessed 10-15 years younger (I'd not have guessed he was 50) and he also complimented us on getting on and trying the Trikke. He said many are fascinated but few will actually get on and give it a shot. Well, I live once and don't want to pass up a minute!
