    Here is one of the biggest problems, is in doing that you would make your boat hugely top heavy, even if it was possible, which it is, just lots of cam straps - i spend most of my time in a chair, FYI

    I'm making myself a pair of break-down crutches for the upcoming season so they will fit in a hatch

    I do the same thing as Arndog (we got to boat together sometimes - how is mid-may looking?) take my crutches and wobble/crawl = if just day boating, I don't take crutches, just kind of "seal" out onto the beach???.not alway pretty, but effective.

    A sit-on-top kayak is allot easier to get into - I'm treating myself to this soon??.may have to go paddle it on the Rio Colorado in March or so:

    Yesterday i got out for 2.5 solid hours of no-stop single track riding in Sedona on the one-off = I keep forgetting my camera?.

    PatD and I rode seven miles of the Boise greenbelt out to the Eagle bike park last week.
    We did a few laps on both the pump track and the flow trail. Nice sunny day, great just to be outside.
    Best of health to the group in 2015!

    I mostly ride my bike for exercise, and I don't walk much because it always feels hard and doesn't get easier, but recently I have decided to give it a more concerted effort again. Today I hiked five miles, and as usual I was moving slow and feeling slightly thrashed at the end. This was my fifth day in a row of hiking. I guess I'll keep at it for a couple more weeks and see if it improves any.

    Maybe build in some rest days. It might not be a good idea to go all out with a new physical activity for weeks on end.

    Wow, Cajun, that's some significant walking distance. I walk 5 days out of 7 and I rarely do 5 miles. 2.5 to 4 miles will always leave me thrashed. That's some major pushing, but, knowing you, that doesn't surprise me. Hope you discover improvements along the way.

    Hi Katja and Charles, I am alternating long walk days, and short walk days, and I will probably take about one day off a week. Thanks.
