Ride of a Lifetime


A couple of weeks ago I went for a ride in the sidecar. I put a picture above but the video still needs a little bit of editing. That's why it's taken me so long to put a post up about my ride. I thought I would just put a picture up so you can at least believe me. I'd been talking about going in the sidecar for at least two years now. It took a while to plan, but I finally did it! I had so much fun! They lifted me out of my wheelchair and into the sidecar using a Hoyer lift. My nurse took my ventilator off of my wheelchair and put it in the trunk. I know that sounds dangerous, but it was actually really secure in there. We only went down the street and back. I would definitely do it again. I will hopefully get the video on my blog soon, but if for some reason I don't, I will upload it onto YouTube and give you a link to it.

Have you got a YouTube channel yet?

Also, I watched your MCPF keynote the other day - it was great to see some footage of you speaking and kind of wished you could have spoken a bit longer. The thing is, a 1-gigabyte MPEG download is a bit long - it took nearly two hours to download! Perhaps it could be split up and posted on YouTube in bits. Would MCPF give permission for that?
