Haha, sounds sensible. I’m certainly going to give the steering column thing a go too. So far the winter’s been very mild though hasn’t it!
Last year I found on short journeys I was OK with just ‘normal’ outdoor clothing on, but for longer journeys I think driving a Twizy is kinda unique, in that, when it’s -2 degrees outside, you wouldn’t just go and sit on a chair for an hour without moving, even if you were wearing fairly decent winter clothes!
Here’s a little story as a reminder about Osbrook’s ‘being prepared’ comment… Living in a town in the South East you tend to forget that winter can actually be kinda bad. Normally if I’m driving in the snow I do go prepared, but a few years back when we had that bad winter, I got caught out big time and was stuck for about 10 hours on a motorway. My phone battery died (partly because I lent it to someone more in need, haha) and I couldn’t keep the engine running because I was all but out of petrol, I had no money on me, no shovel, no blankets, no warm clothing, no food, no water. IDIOT!! Don’t get me wrong, there were plenty of other people in cars nearby, so I’m pretty sure wasn’t going to die and be lost to the wilderness, but around the 8 hour mark, I did start to wonder…! 10 hours in zero degrees without warm clothes or any food/drink to keep energy levels up was bad enough that I [hopefully!?] wont be getting it that badly wrong again any time soon The morals of this story are (1) don’t be in an idiot like me but (2) don’t assume you can always leave your car and walk your way out of trouble! If you’re on a motorway, that’s not always possible (legal).
