Junior (my friends came up with it as both my son and I have red hair, although mine has gone pretty white these days).
I really love the small town feel in a big city. West Seattle has been home for my family for 4 generations. It has views from pretty much everywhere of mountains and sound, amazing restaurants, gorgeous parks and friendly people.
The Junction which is about 2.5 miles from my home. The looks, questions and smiles walking there make my day.
My son and I get Junior out about 10 hours a week at least.
I’m a big fan of where our world is starting to go with protecting the environment. With my job I can’t abandon my car but love that when I’m not working I can have Junior to run to the store, restaurants and other errands.
I really like Junior’s ability to carry the things I would usually take my car to go get.
“Is that a cooler?”, “Are you training it to go to a location?”, “What the heck is that?”
It’s the wave of the future. A walkable robot that will aid in carrying up to 40 lbs for you.
During the start of the pandemic I started walking 10+ miles a day. With Junior I have been able to walk further and accomplish more that would have required a car.
With the walkability of my neighborhood and many of the Seattle neighborhoods, gita would help cut down on the amount of cars on the road, get more people out enjoying the outdoors, get people into our beautiful parks more and I believe just make people more happy!
