    T6/7 6'2" my back is at 14" with a 4" cushion. For me it has to be below my scapulas for good movement. For a T/8 the lower you can go the better.

    Hi Pat, i'm trying this route,see if it works.
    Yeah, the broomstick was a very temp thing,but you see why i needed the hand controls. Also i was much crazier back then.
    Are you still out near Dakota creek? i remember you were making a real nice place.
    I lived in latin america(mexico,guatamala) for over 20 yrs. I returned to the USA about 10 yrs; ago and was living in the n.carolina mtns. when i had a heart attack then really screwed up my left rotator cuff which put me into a power chair. During this time i was living single but knew i needed help . I decided to go to vietnam as i had been there 65-67 and liked the place. After a few months i had hired and fired a few girls when my landlady brought her 15 yr old niece . She was a hard working little country girl, anyway she's still with me.
    After 2 yrs. in vietnam i moved over to Laos ,a laid back,
    I don't know how long i'll stay here but for now i'm OK. It was good hearing from you,take care, stay in touch, greg

    hope you have some quality away time from this gong show.. its a shame someone as positive with so much experience leaves while the people that continuously bicker and cause problems stay. I have added a few more people to my ignore list, but as it loses members like yourself this community is barely worth the time anymore.
