The main reason we headed to Gulf Shores this year was so that Clayton could use the beach power chairs we found there for rent. He could use some more training on the driving (they drive a little differently than his regular chair), but all in all, it was definitely a great thing--our backs especially appreciated it. He is simply to big to carry very far, and definitely if you are walking in sand! I did a little videoing of him driving so that I could share for others who are interested in trying them out:
You'll have to excuse the video quality--my videography skills are lacking!
