    (In Hawaii, crawling into the water so I can snorkel. btw, yep, LOTS of behind the scenes work to get there!)

      Hey, at least you are learning new things and doing them too!

      Great story!

          Hey I know about trying to get to new places and crawling, making a trail down to the river. Digging on your hands and knees is a shit load of work, but the river is right there in front of my house.

            Nothing wrong with finding new way. I not care if now takes me 10 hrs to do something I did in 10 minutes. All that counts is that you CAN DO IT.

              Wow! That's great! One of my greatest frustrations is that we live by a river and I used to walk down there every day. I can crawl, but there are LOTS of boulders, sticks and a very steep section at the end and I can't figure out how to protect my knees and shins for that far of a distance... hmmm....

                  Well you got me thinking, maybe a zip line would work. I'm trying to figure out how to get down to the river and go rowing or kayaking an then when my arms are tired, get back up the steep bank. The bank is sandy loom, ease on the knees, but its pretty steep for part of it. If I just put a rope on the ground to grab a hold of on the way up that would help. Of course I want to be able to go by myself sometimes. Enough time and energy and I will figure it out. Good luck with your river.

                      The more ways to have fun, the better, Darlagee. Great thread.

                      Here's some fun smiles (and devilish ideas) from my son, who is the one in control of the plane for the entire vid.

                        I go to a sleep-away summer camp for a week with my guy up in the mountains near Portland, and one of the activities it has there is horseback riding. About four years ago they were able to raise money to get a specialized saddle for the campers who need support while riding a horse. It's the neatest thing ever. I love horseback riding. It's so relaxing. I grew up around horses, and love them.

                          I just took a look at your website & blog and you're doing more now than I did pre SCI. I think that's wonderful and very inspiring, keep it up!
