iBOT: Taking me places I've never gone before

Like birthday parties for goats.

Here are two of the four goats who turned
2 yesterday:

Note the hats and one of the two birthday cakes. Jean-Luc
is sporting the red hat, while Chloe is stylin' in blue.

I had to go up a long and somewhat steep gravel path to
get to the par-tay. Here I am coming down the long and
somewhat steep gravel path. (I'm attempting to hide in
my coat and behind my hair as it was freakin' freezing.)

There is no way I could have gotten up there in my manual
chair. And I doubt any powerchair other than the bot
in 4-Wheel Drive would have been able to handle it.

Once I got to the top, the bot got me in the barn. Had
I been in my manual, people would have had to carry me
into the barn due to a step up and step down. Any other
powerchair other than the bot could not have done it.

And it's a good thing I got in because that is where
the cake was. The humans ate cake and sang "Happy Birthday"
to the goats, and the goats ate organic raisins. Instead
of playing Pin the Tail on the Donkey, the kids played
Put the Party Hat on the Goat. A good time was had
by all.

Editted to add: The bot also allowed me to NOT get
mud and goat poop all over my hands.
