Geriatric Bad Decisions

As it got harder for me to get around, I needed some form of transportation for trips to the mailbox and just for entertainment. My first idea was an ATV [1]. I had never been on one but figured I could handle it. Wrong!

I sold the ATV and an older golf cart that wasn’t running and decided a golf cart was the best idea. We found a 1994 Yamaha gas cart that ran great but looked like this [2]. We spent some money and a lot of work customizing. [3]

The Yamaha cart was great, but we came up with this not so great idea to sell the cart and get this really cute electric mobility scooter. We would get a carrier for our SUV so I could take it to events that we might want to enjoy.

We received the scooter a month later and I spent a few days in training. I quickly found out that because of my Parkinsons problems this was not going to work for me after several close encounters.

We thought that it would be next to impossible to sell, but in a few days, we found a perfect new owner thanks to craigslist.  Back to a golf cart. We found a 2007 electric Club Car that works just fine and will not be customized. I do miss my Yamaha gas cart, but I’m done with any more changes.
