Getting off cruise ship easy and most places visited they had good disabled buses take into town or if near I went in for good ride. The battery power very good and I always worked on no more than 8 miles. Most difficult place get off is Gibraltar as most ships drop down bit steep. Always risked getting off there as my sister lives there and the whisky is totally durty free and fags I got for my brother as I have never ever had a drag on a fag.
    Hi John,

    Good to hear that you have had some great times on your travels (especially with all that duty-free whisky! ).

    Thanks for the recommendation about the Salsa M2 - it sounds like a very sturdy and reliable wheelchair that is suitable for most terrains!

    I hope you and your family are ok. I expect your grandson still enjoys playing rugby! A shame that England didn't win the Six Nations Rugby in the end, but I still found it a very exciting tournament to watch.

    The Spring seems to be going very quickly, and any tennis fans on the forum have only got a couple of months to wait until Wimbledon is on the TV again!

    Love and best wishes to you and your family,

      Hi all, We had a super time at the show. The Outlander wheelchair with it's mountain bike tyres was super. The smoothest ride over grass up and down curbs. My husband said with the combination of the Free wheel it was very easy to push over different terrain. While going round the show we were stopped and asked about the wheelchair which we got from Care co. We were also asked about the Free wheel and adaptor for use with folding chairs. One lady who was in a NHS wheelchair said "wow I like your chair" and throughout the day when we passed her Iheard her say "I do like that chair". We would highly recommend both the Outlander chair and the Free wheel.

      Love Ginger

            Hi Ginger

            I’m so pleased you had a lovely day at the show. I trust you didn’t buy too many Barbour jackets or silk blouses!

            Many thanks for letting us know how the Outlander performed. I’m sure with the free wheel it was great to manoeuvre. May I ask – how do you think it would have managed on is own on rough grass? I’m interested because I’m not sure I can afford both, at least at the same time. But I don’t need to travel great distances, just move around a rather big and wild garden, and slowly is fine.

            My NHS standard issue Invacare Action2 is pretty useless on grass. The narrow solid tyres just dig in and I can’t shift it. Even with assistance it’s very difficult to make progress – and impossible on even a gentle slope.

            I’ll try to find a showroom where I can have a look at the Outlander, but your views are crucial.

              Hi Doug

              My husband said the good thing about The Outlander is the front wheels are larger and thicker than an NHS wheelchair. The mountain bike wheels should help over the grass. We haven't tried it on it's own without the free wheel.

              If you could get into a showroom to try it out .Care co are the cheapest I think. I must say we went food shopping today in my NHS wheelchair and wow the difference compared to the Outlander is immense.

              Hope this help Love Ginger.

                Many, many thanks Ginger!

                That's a crucial and very helpful bit of information about the front wheels, which was worrying me actually. On my NHS chair they're quite narrow, like the big rear wheels. Just being a bit fatter will make all the difference.

                I'm most grateful.

                Hugs
