Editor's Notes

January 12, 2019:

Versatility, safety and ease of use are the hallmarks of a good e-trike for adults, so top marks go to those with a tighter turn radius, good traction, low, step-through frames, plenty of power to go the distance, shock absorbers for a smoother ride, and reliable braking systems. Extra storage capacity is always a plus, and there's even a folding option that's easier to take along on vacation or longer-distance errands.

Born and raised in the American Deep South, Misty's career in elder care took a sharp left turn when she was swept away to the land of Robin Hood by her very own Merry Man. She's a coffee-swilling master of stitch-witchery with a magical touch in the kitchen and a neverending stream of Disney gag reels playing in her head. A certified nursing assistant by trade and a toy aficionado by choice, some intense parenting ensured she was well versed in gardening, carpentry and electrical engineering by the time she entered grade school. Her culinary artistry, tool-wielding wizardry, and skill with needle and thread were honed over nearly four decades in the kitchens, workrooms, and outdoor spaces of family, friends, and clients. Voracious reading took care of the rest.
