Thanks Johnny for your thoughts. Fortunately, the wheelchair is very robust :lol:

Woo woo a new turbo charged Susie!!!

Fantastic that you have a bit more freedom for getting out and about. God love Jeff for being your co-pilot and partner in crime- he's some man. I remember what it was like pushing my mum about in her wheelchair, not only physically hard work but the responsibility for someone who is depending on you not to lose concentration and suddenly tip them over :crazy: :crazy: :crazy:

Thanks for the photos Susie, very warm and uplifting- just like you. X

Lovely photos & well done you. I'm sure the decision on the sport chair will be a wise one. Just needs some go faster stripes.

May all your coming trips be a little easier. :)

Well done to you both you are truly inspirational and this shows how a partnership like yours should work.
I moan and reach for the pain killers when I get my sore knee, don't think I will moan anymore.

Fantastic pictures and a great report, looking forward to more.

Great effort there Susie and Jeff. Lovely photos and place I hope to visit too, as I have relatives down in Kintyre and have always been intrigued to find out more about the Beavers? :) :) :)
