      I would suggest you have someone scout out the walk in advance.
      From Google Street it looks like there are sidewalks but I am not sure I will be there for that time.

          As for historical; UCBMC ‘are’ pretty ‘safe’ - aside safe, nothing introduced to the human body is, not UC-Irvine and Geron’s derived myelin creating (supposed) cells are, no matter how many 22 thousand prerequisite papers and preclinical animal studies one do, as for derivates, since one will not know until maybe 30-40 years down the road as for cyst problematic, still FDA says Ok, but the general Q is; what is known down the road? Not much, but safety first, sure. Q’s is also raised as for more pain and hurting, I.e. if interneuron networks hook-up (if) badly. Then; neurothropins might stimulate axon growth, along with other stimuli like low dosages of Lithium (very low compared to past history when used as treatments in the psychiatric field). Thing then; will humans ‘possible’ be hurt as for this strategy; neurothropins > other known FDAS remedies > for supposed axon connections? As for wrong connections none will know until one tries, the not know, but if waiting for a complete mapping of the spinal cord with its 300 mill network fibers, 25 thousand interneuron’s calling situated at each segment and the other brain/body-networking fibers none will know for at least 40-50 years (min. for mapping alone, and that is just for the highways in the cord, interconnecting network understanding in total, add another 100 years). This is how it is, but why not try out what is reasonable safe, or at least work for that?

            Karen, we missed you badly! I almost had to cancel myself at the last minute when Bruce had a monster staph infection send him into the hospital for a couple of days . . . they discharged him to the tender mercies of our daughters on Saturday morning, by which time I was on my way to DC.
