It was done a little in secret via FReepmail. We asked everyone to use their lists to get the word out, some people got six or eight of them. Sorry!

Ping!

I'm pretty ashamed that I wasn't able to get in on this, but I wanted to make sure that those of you who did came over to get your thanks and see the results.

I've worked with the developmentally disabled for sixteen years. Occasionally I would have had a client who was also physically disabled. I can't tell you how many times, while I was pulling a disabled person out of the back seat of my car, I wished for a similar device as that 'turny chair.' It would have saved me a load of wear and tear on my back.

Now if that chair can carry a disabled person to the bathroom and gentle drop them on the toilet you have a gift from the angels.

Is the "Freepmobile" in the picture a Pinzgauer?

I remember the old Road and Track test drive back in the 60s or 70s.  They said it had something like 6 reverse gears and 12 forward and if you had the guts it would climb a tree!

Seems like the appropriate vehicle for FReepers.
