    I use Cure catheter kits which are nice and compact but still takes up a lot of room if I were to take one per use. I need to use long catheters because I cath through the belly button.

    I must say, I was very encouraged by what I read in this thread. For example, I didn't know you could get in a boat, even with a vent. And I didn't know quads can ride horses. I would love to ride!
