|Last days of cabin for summer 2017|
Put a 7 year old in a vehicle for 3 hours and what happens?
"Are we there yet?"
"When are we going back home?"
"I need to pee"
"I think I have a big blister on my bum!"
Eventually we'd make it home and after short reflection by Raquel, the million questions, few blister pops, frustration etc. the time and distance were hardly a memory and the pride and accomplishment of the trip was all she could talk about to her mother or grandparents.
Of course in doing the tests on battery life and routes the scooter could handle, it was inevitable that one day I'd forgotten to recharge and we found out the hard way what happens when you are 1km from home at the bottom of a large hill and that zero power wasn't to be an option in the future....
Her foot wasn't the greatest dad moment as I firmly planted my knee on her toe while climbing into the tent after she was asleep.
