Fran and I have spent the day de-mudding everything after one of the muckiest Glastonburys on record.
It was my wheelchairs that needed the most attention, with my all-terrain chair almost a solid block of mud. I was anxious to get both of them clean and dry quickly so that none of the delicate parts got damaged.
We accepted early on that in order for the chairs to get clean we were going to get very dirty.
Fortunately it’s been sunny so it became a pleasant and satisfying task.
I’m always surprised by how many different parts there are on my chairs, but the mud had worked its way into every single crevice. After we’d washed it all off we carefully dried and greased everything, and both chairs are once again recognisable, and in good nick.
