Vacationing with My iLevel® Wheelchair

For the first time since the COVID-19 pandemic began, my family and I took a vacation to a place that is very special to us: Greensboro, Georgia. I attended the Mansfield Oil Golf Classic in hopes to raise funds to help those with life-threatening conditions. The event was a lot of fun and I’m excited to share about my adventures in my Stretto Power Wheelchair with iLevel® technology.

Enjoying the View

We arrived at the hotel on Sunday, June 6. It was about a four-hour drive from our home in Charlotte, North Carolina. The first thing we did was enjoy some of the scenery, as the hotel was on the lake. There are multiple pathways around the hotel that allow guests to walk around and venture into the outdoors. I had a great view of everything on our walk thanks to iLevel. I elevated the seat of my Stretto Power Wheelchair up to 12 inches for even more fun and enjoyment.

Golfing with iLevel

We went over to the small putting green at the hotel and I played some golf. iLevel technology allowed me to get into the game. I raised up my wheelchair seat, which helped me to swing the golf club. I sunk many of the putts and felt as though I was ready to play in the Masters Tournament.

On the golf course, I raised my wheelchair up to see the action better. My wheelchair traveled over the terrain easily and allowed me to get to each hole with no problem. Being elevated at iLevel allowed me to be at the same height as the golfers while I talked with them. It was great to have the full experience!

Eating Out with My Stretto Motorized Wheelchair

We ate out at some fantastic restaurants that had tons of tasty food. My motorized wheelchair with iLevel allowed me to elevate to sit at the table and eat my food easily. We met up with some friends that we usually see at the event. It was great catching up with them after all this time.

Attending Concerts and Giving Speeches

One of my favorite things that we did on the trip was seeing the Electric Light Orchestra in concert. Almost every song they played was a hit and I had a blast. Being in my Stretto with iLevel allowed me to rock out and have the time of my life.

On the final day of the event, I gave a speech about how Mansfield Oil has been on the front lines of fighting for research to help cure many life-threatening conditions. I spoke about how the organization has helped to change the lives of many families, including mine. My Stretto with iLevel technology helped me during my speech by letting me elevate my power chair seat all the way up. Everyone could see me, no matter where they were in the room. People didn’t have to search for me during my speech.

The trip was a lot of fun after having to deal with the COVID-19 pandemic. It almost felt as though life had gone back to normal. It was great to get away and spend quality time with my parents. I am excited to attend this event in the future and experience more great times.
