Ride of the Week

Amy Edgett/Sierra SunJess Bailey and the Me Vehicle

How long have you had the vehicle?Three years.Where did you find it?I was driving through Tahoe Donner, and I saw it at some apartments. The for sale sign called to me and said You need me.Why did you need it?For fishing. Floriston is on the side of a cliff, and my short legs get tired hiking up from the river.Do you use it for fishing?Not anymore. Since the Fish and Game Commission bowed to the political pressures of the fly fishermen, worm fishing is not allowed. Worm fisherman arent very organized; they just want to fish and enjoy the day, so no. When Im an old man, which currently I am not, I wont be able to take my cart and worm fish. Now, theres a Brad Pitt on every rock.Are there other uses for the vehicle?I use it Sunday to go to meetings, work projects around town, and for VIPs in case any should ever show up and want a tour.Are there special modifications?Fishing pole, tackle box and net holders, ice chest and lights, because I got run into twice because its quiet.I assume its electric?Yep.How fast does it go?Real fast downhill, not so fast uphill.The Sierra Suns Amy Edgett conducted this weeks Ride of the Week interview and photo shoot.
