  • My dad has always been the "there is always something that needs to be done, don't waste your day inside watching t.v. kind of p

    My dad has always been the "there is always something that needs to be done, don't waste your day inside watching t.v. kind of person and cannot stand not doing anything...recently he was in a severe snowmobiling accident (very freak, a tree fell on him out of nowhere, no wind, beautiful weather, just wrong place at the very wrong time. although it could have been much worse) and broke his leg in 3 places. He has been instructed to not put any weight on the leg for at least 6 weeks...anyway, to cut to the chase, its been about 2 1/2 weeks so far and he mentioned that even though he can't put weight on his leg, there has to be a way to do something with the fourwheeler so he can put his leg up and still ride around outside...the last time he was out it waqs on his way up to snowmobile so everything was still white but now the green is coming out and there is so much to do now that it is spring. he like to do things his way but cant...so i am his "helper" and if he could get on the 4 wheeler and at least be able to tell me what to do and how it would be the best thing. we get cows every year and by now we would have always had them for about a week or two but since my dads been "disabled" lol nothing has gotten ready...fertilize the pastures, harrow (if thats how you spell it lol} sprinklers ready to go, fix fences...and a whole lot of other things besides what has to do with the cows. lol so again in a nutshell, is there any soft of awesome invention that can go on the 4 wheeler so he can put his leg on it and still be comfortable?? please let me know...either way! thank you!

    I'm not aware of anything for a quad to rest his leg on. But even if he finds something or some way to do it please tell him to be extra careful. One slip up and he could have permanent damage. Are you old enough to do all those things without his help? Do you have older brothers or sisters to help out?

      First off, I'm sorry about your dad, and I hope he has a quick recovery. I sorry, but I agree with DSM, I wouldn't recommend him putting his leg up, for safety reasons. With a leg up, you wouldn't be nearly as stable when driving it, and could easily fall off if you hit a bump or a hole.

        ATV's are not the smoothest riding machines. Plus they can get stuck. if you are saying how he should put up his leg horizontal while riding, i don't know how he could turn with his leg being in the way. i would think its safer to wait to ride

          If he's in good shape maybe a wheelchair?

            How about mounting a chair in a trailer to haul behind the quad? He could sit in the trailer and you could drive him around like a king. I’ve got to side with the others though on riding the four-wheeler. If your dad is on it, he is leading with his leg and it could be the first thing to hit something. The trailer might not be the best thing for his pride, but at least he could be out there with you.

              Your dad sounds like an awesome guy. Wait it out. One little mishap and he'll be out of commission the whole summer or worse.

                Barrow a side by side until he is fully recovered.
