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.
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.
