Up Again

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Monday, October 24, 2011,
Yesterday I just had to know if there was anyway I could ride the Chinese scooter, now. I took a big freezer bag, put my hand in it and drew the slide tab over to tighten it against my wrist. Now I had a plastic mitten to keep my hand a little warmer than if it was bare. I put my hand on the scooter's handlebar and-voila-I could grasp it effectively. Today I went out and took a little ride into Town and was able to ride fairly confidently.Overall I rode only eight miles but it told me what I ...

Down For Awhile

I stupidly fell on a slippery plank last week and broke a bone in my hand. I know, it could have been worse but wearing a splint and not being able to ride is like a punishment.

Interesting Times

Posted by Jim Zeiser on Sunday, October 2, 2011,
Even though the days are getting cooler I'm still riding. The Chinese scooter has acquired another 700 miles in about a month and with any luck I'll still be using it until the end of October for my job. I know I've said it repeatedly but it's been a major gas saving device. This last tank of gas in my minivan has lasted me over three weeks. The comical thing is that I rarely even visit gas stations because of it. When I fill up the car I also fill a couple of gas cans and then I fill the sco...
