  • How dangerous do these stairs look?

    I will have four guys lifting me and two to catch me if they loose their footing or grips.

    You look like someone who is not overweight, it seems reasonable to me. It sucks that where you are going is not accessible, it seems to be the bane of the holidays for us wheelers.

      That's a 28-year old picture. I'm a little thinner now and have a Quickie II.

            I've been carried up a lot steeper than that, and I am probably heavier, so I say go for it. Just make sure the guys carrying you don't have too much to drink because you have to be carried back out again too!

                My guess is that those guys will be very careful.
                Looks like a bit of an obstacle course!

                      I agree with crypticgimp here, those steps are ok and not dangerous. I would have done the same down too, but be careful that at least one is sober ;o)

                        I plan to leave early, so maybe my brothers and nephews will still be sober on Xmas Eve.

                        They might have to remove a wheel to get through the door, then put it back in inside the house.

                          LOL, that is the dangerous part. I once was at a party in the 4th floor and the stairway was 100 years old and round and nobody was sober when I had to go home. Happely, I was not sober myself either, or I would have died of fear.

                          Another time I was only in the first floor and not so many steps but then I had to throw the chair down and bump the stairs on my butt

                            Yes, it is always the trip down with the drunks carrying you that is the most dangerous. It is one of those situations that can even drive an atheist to praying. lol
