Getting a Lift in Life

 Last summer I blogged about our friends Penny and Tim driving up to Maine from Alabama so they could join us in eating lobster.  Denny and I met Tim and Penny when we workamped together back in 2004 but they had to give up the lifestyle when Penny developed a problem with balance and had to start using an electric scooter to get around.

Traveling in their van kind of got the travel bug activated in their systems so I started looking online for some sort of wheelchair lift or modification that would allow Penny to enter a travel trailer easily while on her scooter.  I located a video on YouTube that a gentleman had posted of a lift he and a friend had created and got in touch with him to see if he could make a lift for my friends' travel trailer.  He said yes, I gave his information to Penny and as a result our friends are now working for the summer at a campground in North Carolina and loving being RVers once again.

The bad news is that they immediately got a job after having the lift installed instead of meeting us out on the road somewhere for some serious celebrating but'll happen. ;)

Without further ado--Penny's "lift to freedom".

That's cool. You were able to help out, and you can all get together sometime.
