To celebrate the month's end- we cashed in a free night of babysitting by some friends and went on a groupon sponsored-SEGWAY tour around Dayton! It was so much fun. so so much.
so- helmets aren't that flattering one me- but I've got one on in every picture in the post so I'm just going to have to deal with it. and the helmet wearing was totally worth it for our night. I love groupon. I can't believe all of the wonder it has brought to our otherwise mediocre evenings and weekends.
Here's Kent going so fast. Okay- well- the max speed is 12mph- but to get going that fast you have lean forward and it makes it look like you are going faster. The segways move according to your body movements. It's kind of scary really. The hardest part is learning to just trust your body. If you get nervous and try to over correct yourself- you end up sending the segway flying or backwards or into traffic! Our tour guide told us one guy even went straight into the river!
Our tour was at least ten miles- and pretty unique. This picture is for my Mom. Carillon bells. Kent is looking into whether or not they have a concert out on the lawn :)
I would highly recommend a Segway tour around your city if they offer them! We saw a ton of places we may have never seen otherwise- and had a blast.
