My name is Robert A Hunter (I also do this website) I am 60 and I have MS. I have been using my scooter to get out and about with my dog Jasper. A lot of the walks are around Lochgelly where I live. I have a quite good mobile phone with a quite good camera so I started taking photo`s with it, then I thought what about taking video`s of the walks so I have started doing this. I start I was putting the video`s onto YouTube (ROBBIE2MS), When I started putting my videos up Youtube limited the length of the videos to 10 minutes and most of the videos can be longer than that. Now YouTube has increased this to I don`t know what but I have been able to put up quite large video.
There are video`s I have taken of the walk`s I have done around Lochgelly and video`s of some of the walks I have done around Kirkcaldy. All the walk`s are over either on roads, pavements paths, farm roads or tracks, which can be over rough uneven ground at least in part and in some cases all of the walk. Also the video`s have the sound that came with the recordings of the walks so you may wish to turn off the sound. Also the most recent video are in 720p HD. I have to hold my phone camera in my hand so the videos can be a bit jumpy. I would love to use a helmet cam but good quality ones are just too expensive. If you have thought the walks look nice, why not go and do them yourself. I hope you can see by looking at the videos if the terrains are ok or not for you to manage and the text that came with the videos show the length of the walk. I used to use a class 3, 3 wheeled scooter and am a quite experienced scooter user but even I keep a fully charged mobile phone with me containing helps numbers just in case, I also carrier a can of tyreweld just in case I get a puncture and it has come in handy. I am now using a 4 wheeled scooter and what a pain they have been compared to the 3 wheeled ones I had.

I was out on my mobility scooter at the start of the week and I had same problems using pavements but being able to due to road signs that should have been on the road where there was plenty of room but where placed on the pavement. I know the signs are only there for the length of time of the road works but that doesn`t help the people who are wanting to use the pavement “now”.
