I got to have one of THESE!!!!

We made it to Hutchinson, Kansas on Wednedsay afternoon, It took 2 days of over 300 miles per day and both days had treacherous winds....gusts up to 50mph....it wasn't fun driving. We are here attending the HDT (Heavy Duty Truck) Rally and giving a PressurePro Tire Pressure Monitoring Seminar. Several of our friends are already here and others will be in soon.

Every night is Happy Hour and Pot Luck at our place. This is the first night and the party continues to grow every night.....lots of old and new friends.


Here is Ms Pat on her NEW TOY!!  We are set up in a good visible spot and have already sold a couple PressurePro systems and a PowerTank.  The Rally doesn't even start until today.

Now we both have NEW TOYS!! These are FUN! After a short training session we were checked out and cleared for a solo.  Now we are ready for a race.......Get set GO!,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,


Pat won!!! She beat me!!!  Our good friend and fellow HDT'er Dave Mattson from near Kansas City brought 2 of these Segways to the Rally with him. We had a ball riding them around the RV Park. Pat had ridden one several years ago in an RV Park in Florida and I have been wanting to try one for myself.

Dave gave us a training session and showed us how they work.  They are neat!  It does take a little getting used to, but it's not hard. You lean forward and it will go forward, the farther you lean the faster it will go.  Same thing on stopping and backing up, just lean back. Turning is accomplished by turning the left handgrip.  Many thanks to Dave for this enjoyable and fun new experience......I loved it !!!!!  Boy O Boy, the fun we have in this lifestyle never ends! I would like to have one of these but Ms Pat says we need to WALK....for exercise......Shucks!!!

We will be giving our Seminar here on Monday, then we have to leave early Wednesday morning and head for an RV Park near San Antonio for another Seminar at the RV-Dreams Rally. It will be another fairly hard two day trip.  Lets hope we have some decent weather and no break downs.

I'll try to make a short Blog Post Wednesday before we leave........ Thanks for stopping by.

It was a GREAT WEEK!!!!!

I still remember seeing Jay Leno demonstrate those Segways on his 'Late Night'show after they first came out. They look like a lot of fun. Have yourselves some safe travels & super seminars.....:))

I rode a Segway once at the Escapees campground in Alabama and had a ball on it! What fun!

I've never ridden a Segway, but often wondered about them and how they actually worked. Thanks for the explanation. Drive safely and have fun.

I've wanted one for years! A couple of months ago our daughter took her 14-year old nephew (our grandson) on a Segway trip --- down Lombard Street in San Francisco! For those who aren't familiar with Lombard Street, it is known as "The Crookedest Street in the World." Having driven it a few times, I have to agree.

Have fun, sell a lot of PressurePro systems, you'll be able to buy 2 Segways, and you'll still find time to walk.

those look like a ball...not so good for the cardio though unless you are falling off! bet they don't work on dirt roads very well, huh?

sounds like you two are having a blast, as it should be! :)+
