#30DaysofScootering - Day 30 - Hello OLAF, Goodbye McNugget


Last fall I backed the OLAF scooter on Kickstarter. Yesterday, my OLAF Urban arrived.


It's a backpack kick scooter combination. Folded up, it's easy to carry.


Viewed from the front, it looks like an ordinary backpack.


 You can also use it as a wheeled trolley.


The pack has nice reflective bits.


The scooter steers by leaning. It has a little friction fender brake on the back.


The backpack can either be left on the platform while scootering or worn as a backpack.


The pack is really nicely designed. It's got lots of reflective bits, good construction and a nicely padded internal laptop sleeve.



The handle can also be folded down to make the OLAF into a skateboard. I suck at skateboarding.


The handle can extend to three different heights. I prefer the middle setting, but the OLAF should work well for folks both small and tall.

-----------------

I also have to report some sad news today. McNugget the Rooster, a long time Issaquah resident who I've mentioned here various times, was killed Tuesday night by an escaped dog. Details of the tragedy can be read here.


Swifty and I scootered over to McNugget's place today. Various friends of McNugget have set up a memorial there.





The memorial sums it up, McNugget was loved.

2.41 miles of scootering today, so the month closes out with a grand total of 165.87 miles.
