Segways in Motion!

So, as I'm sure you've gathered from Jeff's previous post, Segways are the best thing ever. It is truly shocking to me that more people don't have them ('s only shocking until you find out that the lazy person's scooter costs 5,000 dollars).

Besides all of the awesomely unbalanced still photographs you've already seen, Jeff and I managed to capture a few awesomely unbalanced videos of us riding around DC on the aforementioned Segways. (It turns out that operating a Flip Video Camera on a Segway is not the best way to capture the smooth ride of the Segway.)

Sit back. Relax. Take a Dramamine. And enjoy videos like this one:

Riding on the Segway during a hot and humid summer day in DC brought us plenty of surprises along the way, including this guy:

After nearly three hours, our time with the Segways came to an end. Our friendly and patient tour guide, Emma, allowed us one final spin...which we just had to document in Shaky/Dark/Hazy Flip-Camera-on-a-Segway Style:

I cannot thank my Father and Uncle enough for inspiring us to see DC in this way. Best. Tour. Ever.
