    I did both those things as well!
    So many times i say "man, I'm glad I rode trials for 15yrs"
    It saves my ass over & over

      Very helpful discussion.
      I also find that after standing and putting weight on my feet, the tingling and "sense" of them increases. Its like I feel them there, although not EXACTLY where.

      I'm going to do weekly video updates of my standing exercises on my blog. Next month, it will be from a condo in Hawaii! So if the standing depresses me, the snorkeling will cheer me up

          For me (and this has been 20+ years ago), the more I learned my "sense" or sensation the more adapt I got to being able to place my feet. Even today, if a leg were to break and be turned backwards, I would not know it but I would know that my foot is touching something hard. It is really hard for people to understand that concept even some of my doctors. I still remember that feeling when they stood me up and I felt nothing. It was a horrible panic feeling and I remember asking the Physical therapist if my feet were on the floor. I couldn't see because the huge turtle brace prevented me from movement and I was afraid to look down. Its funny some of the things your mind just never forgets. That feeling is one of them.

          The more you do get used to the "new you sense", the better you will become.

              Yes and,,,, today's bright move required taking out the window on the screen door(removed!) shoveling the 2'x2' path to let the door open and than struggling across the 24" of snow to clean off the truck. Made it, cleaned off the monster 4x4 and started it up, got it warm and packed the driveway down, and than there was the "tingling" yes, there still there, the kicker,,,, I wasn't wearing any shoes, or socks,,, but hey I had a coat on......
