SEGWAY!

Today I have something to blog about! This afternoon I got the opportunity to try out a Segway! The Charlotte-Mecklenburg Police have a fleet of 22 of them, and they brought a bunch of them in from the field for us to try.
I got a lesson from an officer, and then I was invited to climb aboard.
In a very short time I was able to balance, and my teacher spent some time talking about foot position, turning,
and other important tips, like how to stop!
We took a turn around the loading dock for practice....And then away I went!!!!!!!!!!!!How cool is this?I really got the hang of it. Seems that skiers have an easier time -- it's the same motion!
The Three Musketeers! My CAD Admin Andy, and Desktop Team Member Kelly.Kelly wasn't going to give it a go, but I said geez if I can do it, you can do it too!
Andy was the first one to jump on.I was the last one to get off.
I told them they'd have to kick me off, and they said, stay on as long as you like.
Here is a movie clip -- you may have to hit the play button twice to start it.
