Wheelieman hits Wyntercon

IMG_4196WynterCon: Comic-Con in Eastbourne.  Comic-Con: Convention for comic book based films / characters, a place where fans go to dress up as their heros and generally enjoy themselves in geek heaven.

I took my son to Wyntercon at the Winter Gardens in Eastbourne today.  I hadn’t looked at their website so didn’t know what to expect, I’d heard a lot of great things about it & decided to just turn up and see what happens. Continue reading

 

Kensington Switch Stick – Lightweight Folding Walking Stick Review

It occurred to me that I haven’t reviewed ‘old faithful’ – my folding walking stick.  For starters, it’s called a Kensington Switch Stick (link goes to the search page eBay), these come in a variety of colours with an optional strap – which I didn’t go for myself as I figured I’d switch hands regularly (which I do as it turns out!).

Disabled Pilots Getting to the Slope – Luggie Scooter Review

I bought a Luggie Scooter a few weeks ago to enable me to get to the hills without breaking the back of the friend who pushed me up there (I have MS & really struggle with the walking / staying upright thing).

I think I’ve used it enough to share my findings to those wanting to go flying / slope soaring independently.

I fly radio controlled epp combat slope soarers (the Wildthing is my weapon of choice!) around the Hastings / Eastbourne area, at Fairlight (nice and flat maintained footpath) and Butts Lane (not maintained, grazed land, plenty of mud / poo). Continue reading

 

Scooter Review – Luggie Scooter

Luggie-Elite-RedThe Luggie Scooter is a folding scooter that can fit in a case (hence called Luggie = luggage)

I bought a Luggie Scooter a few weeks ago and feel I’m now ready to review it having used it a few times for different purposes and experienced their repair service (I broke the charging port!)

I bought the ‘Luggie Elite Folding Mobility Scooter’, more expensive than the standard one but I wanted one with a bit of grunt – this one comes with a bigger battery. Continue reading
