I’ve back home from our recent jaunt to Arizona but got walloped by a banging head cold upon our return and have been miserable ever since (which accounts for my lack of posting and blog visiting). I’m limping along trying to get caught up so forgive me for not visiting in a while and for not responding to the comments you’ve left. At this point, I’m just going to start fresh and not try to get “caught up” as this seems too formidable and somewhat unnecessary. (After all, if I responded to a comment you left a week ago, you’d probably think I was nuts.)
Anyhoosie, the big news is that I finally got to ride a Segway (an item on my wildly unrealistic bucket list). I’ve been dying to try these gizmos ever since I first saw them (a desire that got more pronounced after seeing Kevin James’s Segway work in Mall Cop). They were just as fun as I imagined though I do admit to having foot cramps during the first half hour or so from stress and tension after realizing that 12 mph feels much faster on a Segway than in a car. Here are some photos from the excursion, which involved rocketing around Old Town Scottsdale this past Monday morning. It was a total kick, and if you ever have an opportunity to try a Segway, I’d highly recommend it.
By the way, if you’re ever in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area and want to ride Segways, I’d highly recommend Scottsdale Segway Tours. The price is affordable, the tour is fantastic and they take photos of you so you don’t have to take the chance of killing yourself to do it on your own.
