Default Off road wheelchair the easy way

OK, so it ain't connected to wood, unless you ride one thru trees. But power wheel chairs are expensive, and I figure there are a few of you who could possibly use something like this, or have a relative or friend who could. Not rocket science, looks quite doable. Of course, I wouldn't do it quite this way. I use a cane, no wheelchair, but been working on coming up with a design for an off-road mobility chair, using a 3-wheel ATV as the basis, but set up to only do about 7-10 MPH, for safety. My plan is use it for junkyard crawling. My latest idea on propulsion is, a small steam engine (with condenser, so no huge amount of water to be carried), driving an air compressor, which in turn will drive an air motor. But likely will wind up with a small gas engine. Electric, with solar panels would likely be a good choice, but to me electricity is about like magic, don't understand either one.

So, check this out.

And is it ever tricky posting with this spider thing going on. Not got a regular screen since yesterday, and believe me, been trying multiple times today, and still spider web.

I think he's talking about opening up to a text display rather than the usual screens. I am having the exact same problem and have to post on the text screen to get back to the regular screen. It will have to be fixed. I suspect it is part of the very bad move to Google as a host. Never had a problem before that move.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.
