Segway Tour

13 March 2009 | D and D Rentals
We rented a car when we arrived in Guam at D&D Rentals. The firm is run by a great guy named Dan. Dan is also the regional distributor for Segway personal transports. We rented an SUV for two weeks for $550 with full insurance. A pretty good deal. We also were very interested in taking a tour on the Segways.

Dan has been battling to get the Segways approved by the legislature in Guam for various areas downtown and finally won the politicians over a few months back. This was good news for us because it enabled tours in the Tumon area, where all the night life is.

Arni from Jade was having a birthday today and like us wanted to give the Segways a spin. So we had a Segway night on the town for Arni's birthday. We all had to do a Segway break in course in the parking lot but no one crashed even given all of the natural hazards along the busy sidewalks of town. This was followed by dinner at Capricciosa, an Italian restaurant chain based in Japan (!?). It was a great night out with wonderful company, fun gizmos and great food.
