Wright Brothers National Memorial, located in Kill Devil Hills, North Carolina, commemorates the first successful, sustained, powered flights in a heavier-than-air machine. From 1900 to 1903, Wilbur and Orville Wright came here from Dayton, Ohio, based on information from the U.S. Weather Bureau about the area's steady winds. They also valued the privacy provided by this location, which in the early twentieth century was remote from major population centers.
It was soooo hot the day we were here....how hot was it, you ask??
That's a WATER bottle!! Yep, that's how hot it was! ;)
Lot's of scooter-friendly paths here as you can see.
ON THE ROAD WITH BLOOMERS AND DRAWERS...a simple little blog about scooterin'. :) It started out as an RV travel blog, but the economy went south and the lotto numbers didn't match, so all we could afford were scooters instead of the big ol' RV. Join us in our adventures of one old geezer and his lovely "craft-crazy" wife ;) as we scooter our handicap butts around and find the truth about "handicap accessiblity".
Sheri and I both like humor & people-watching...'cause they're just so darn fascinating! ;) and traveling. And as soon as we hit the Mega-Million, we'll be traveling full-time! Hey, if you're gonna dream, dream big! ;)
