I believe there were a lot more of those "runabouts" this year than in past
and there are places to recharge batteries (right new Outland Royal/Your
Inner Vagabon).  People seem to get around quite nicely with those although
I didn't see any of them try to go through one of the mud pits.  As long as
you stay on the main roads that would work and she wouldn't be at the mercy
of the buses or disability services.
