Friday evening, the van with the ramp arrived! It's not new, but it's new to us!
It's a 2007 Dodge Caravan SXT with less than 25,000 miles on it.
Two of the features that I decided our van must have so that I can get in and out by myself: power ramp and power sliding doors. I left the rest up to Mrs. AOW. She made sure to get a van with a CD player.
Mrs. AOW can drive like a bat out of hell! On our first trip out, she took a corner way too fast and flipped me off the scooter and onto the van's floor.
It wasn't all her fault! I should have been hanging on! After all, I'm the one who insisted that we didn't have to secure the ramp to the floor gizmos.
We went to a car cruise-in last night. Mrs. AOW didn't dread the outing this time because there will be no more lifting that scooter out of the trunk of the Crown Vic.
In a few days, Mrs. AOW will be posting some of the photos that she took at her own site.
Having this van means that I won't be shut in the house so much of the time. A big expense - but worth it. We hope.
Road trip this summer!
