I am in the same spot as you and completely resolved the situation when I purchased a travelscoot. I am completely independent but can not walk far at all and absolutley no inclines. The travelscoot gave me my life back. You might want to check it out. I ran into a fellow on a cruise to Alaska and he said he distributed scooters in England and was going to add the travelscoot to his line. You might want to check them out at travelscoot.com. Elizabeth's travelscoot blog has pictures of all kinds of people that travel with them.
