English Point, North Idaho, Trail 80 (Blue)

This was our first outing with the new Trackchair.  I received the chair at the end of March for my birthday from Chive Charities, but with everyone being sick and needing to get a trailer it took a little while to get out with it.

This has been one of our favorite trails to hike on because it is fairly close to the house and is very wooded.  We love hiking in wooded areas because it feels really nice being amongst the trees.

We tried taking the trail backwards from the route we usually take, but the trackchair just couldn’t do it.  There was a stop with a root that was smooth going up a steep incline, so we turned around and went our normal way.

For the rest of the hike the chair did amazing.  I even had to go through some pretty deep mud and the chair just drove right through it.  At one point we came across a downed tree, and I was able to drive over it!  Amazing.

It felt so good being able to get out of the house after years of mostly having to stay inside.  I can’t wait for more adventures!
