    and pushed around campus for an hour...many hills

    i'm wiped

    Jon, that is Fantastic!!! I spotted a backpack in the photos, how much weight did you carry? Did you go with friends? What was hardest about using snow shoes from xc skis?

    Last week I was in Hawaii, surfed more than 8 hours over 4 days and now I haven't got any arms left to push thru the snow here in Canada ; )

    Go Ashley !

    Surf S - one liter gatorade, a pbj sandwich, warm hat, windbreaker and a camera were in the pack - couldn't have weighed more than 5 lbs.
    I didn't go with anyone, and one thing about the snowshoes is you have to keep a wider stance to avoid walking on them. Since I can't adduct my 'bad' leg, that was a bit of a challenge.

    Here is a little video diary of today.... I threw in 2 secs of snowshoeing from yesterday
    Sitskiing looks like fun ! Probably the only kind of skiing my neurosurgeon would approve of too I'm always jealous of the skiers while I'm trudging up Glacier Point Road on my slowshoes

    Sitskiing is great fun and can be brutal going up hills with just arm power, it is great lat and tricep and forearm pump. Now that I can do both 'slowshoe' and sitski , I will mix 'em up and do both. I feel that when people see me snowshoeing they must think, oh, he doesn't have the ski skills to nordic ski or telemark. Of course they don't know that they are looking at a great legend {in my own mind} of a skier.
    I can't worry what others think really, we get amazing/amusing comments while we grind up hills on arm power while sitskiing. Usually stuff like, "you are an inspiration or you must have really strong arms" . The other day someone said , "I wish I had you arm strength", I had to hold back from saying "I wish I had your legs..."
    RhYang - why don't you put a sign on your back saying - "I am not really a klutz, the reason I am slow is that I am an incomplete quadraplegic" - That will make them them stop and show some respect
    Today -
    70 min crutch walk with Jasper, the dog 2.8 miles, 113 bpm avg hr, 440 ascent
    30 min stationary bike avg hr 110
    65 min elliptical - hard avg hr 135 bpm
    2.5 hours total.
    Tomorrow , I am taking a new T6 complete para to go nordic sitskiing for the first time. Me and Mark will show him. Actually, there will be 5 people in sitskiing - it may be a record for Tahoe Donner Ski Area.....

    Nice work - RJP and fuente !

    Here is C. Cable grinding up a big hill at Spooner Cross Country, at Tahoe...
