ABOUT pop n' drop
What it's all About! A ride with my son
I got tired of watching from the window. Let me explain. I was a perfectly healthy guy, enjoying life to it's fullest when all of a sudden ..BAM.. My life was changed in an instant. I was in a car wreck that broke my neck and paralyzed me from the chest down. What a tough hand to be dealt! Anyway, besides all the other crap I had to deal with, it ate me up that my son would be outside playing and riding his bike and all I could do was watch him from the window. That sucked!
Well, I decided I wasn't going to settle. I wasn't going to just 'accept' that. I wanted to ride with him. I wanted to race him down the street. I wanted him to remember me as the dad who rode with him, not the one who simply watched from the window.
Well, along comes EcoReco and Pop n Drop! I thought if they could send a man to the freakin' moon, I could figure out a way to attach a wheelchair to a power scooter. How hard could it be? Well I did it! It took a bunch of tries and a lot of persistence, but I did it! I designed a bracket that attaches a wheelchair to an EcoReco scooter, the best scooter on the market. Why not go for the best?
Then other wheelchair people saw it and wanted to try it too. So, I had to redesign the Pop n Drop so that it could fit different size wheelchairs, not just mine. So, I made the necessary changes and now it could fit multiple wheelchair sizes, and it could be done very easily.
The best part is, I don't have to watch from the window anymore! I ride alongside my son all the time now on my EcoReco scooter! The feeling is incredible!
So, I encourage all you all you wheelchair users out there, when faced with obstacles, BE STUBBORN! Don't give up too easily and if you want to feel the wind blowing through your hair again, check out the EcoReco scooter (www.ecorecoscooter.com) with a Pop n Drop bracket (www.myfastchair.com)!
