BOBBIE THE STROLLER

BOBBIE THE STROLLER

My Dearest Walker Friend,

Meet Bob the Ironman Duallie Stoller, or as I like to call her, Bobbie! She’s already a whopping 34 pounds and I have not even put anything in her yet!

I found her on Craigslist from her funny owner, Rob.  Rob told me that he should have been in the stroller business because he purchased a dozen strollers for his wife and he could just not get the right one no matter how he tried. He had to keep taking them back to the store. Lucky for me, he sold this one online.  I am not sure if Rob’s wife did not like Bobbi because of her color or what the issue was with this one, but regardless, it was exactly what I was looking for. It’s all good because I wanted the yellow one.   Bobbie is brand new out of the box and I got her for quite a discount.

Rob and Bobbie are in Venice, Florida at the moment.  I need to get Bobbie the Stoller over to West Palm Beach by April 1, 2018.  If you have any ideas on transportation, I would love to hear them.

My friend Fergy is coming over to help me gear up and figure out how many things I can put in her.  I know she can handle 100 pounds, but I sure don’t want to push that much stuff up a mountain!

I will need to learn how to change the tires and take care of her properly for 3600 miles.  I likely need to get a few of the accessories, like the weather shield and bar handle for cups and towels and what not.  Walking across the country is going to be interesting in all kinds of ways, so much to learn, but I think Bobbie will make it a lot easier!

If you see me on the trail and you want to push Bobbie for a while, I would welcome your efforts of course!  Walk With Me, please! Come out and join me for 1,2 or 100 miles.  Whatever suits your fancy!

~Your Walker Friend, Sheryl Lynn
