Of course, the only thing better than an experience you'll never forget is two experiences you'll never forget. With this in mind, we … drove north to Sister Bay for an off-road Segway tour Saturday afternoon from Seaquist Segway.
Before you chuckle, consider that the Segway X2 isn't your standard mall cop scooter. This amazing piece of technology travels more than 10 miles at 12 miles per hour on seemingly impossible terrain. ...Steve Seaquist put us through a training course.... Once we hit the trails, though, the fun really began on this most intuitive vehicle.
To walk this length of wooded trails would take hours, so zipping through on Segway enabled a truly unique opportunity. And Seaquist is a descendant of Door County's original settlers. He showed us where his ancestors chopped down trees (which have all regrown), farmed and planted orchards. He explained why Door County's soil is so perfect for cherries – it all goes back to that Niagara Escarpment – and the unique bluffs and rock formations that most visitors simply take for granted.
Steve's connection to his past elevated this tour from something extremely interesting to something extremely personal. As we stood perfectly balanced in the forest, I asked him what his great-grandfather would think about him giving Segway tours on the land where his family once toiled. He said he thought his ancestors would appreciate reinventing the land once again. (Andy Tarnff, OnMilwaukee.com, 8/19/11)
