    Whenever I drive a long distance I use my Roho cushion. I actually was able to find one on E-bay pretty cheap as a secondary cushion so that I could keep it in the truck. Works out great!

    Occasionally move your a@@ around and you'll be fine. An additional cushion is overkill IMO. I'm c6/7 and have been driving cars and trucks for 9 yrs and have NEVER experienced skin brake down.

    I understand what you are saying. I also have noticed that I have a lot fewer spasms when I use my roho in the auto. I'm not even 2 yrs post so I have a long way before I've got anywhere near the experiences you do. I am glad to hear that you haven't had any probs. from driving/riding in the car. I just kinda combine the comfort factor and the sore prevention with my cushion.

    Cspine I hope you find the info/ideas/opinions we have here helpful.

    What kind of distance? Around town, I'm fine sans cushion... but how about those 3-8hr trips?

    Ive never used a cushion driving,from time to time ive put a little piece of foam under my seat cover but thats about it.Ive put in some days of 10-15hrs behind the wheel without a problem...but thats me,and not everyone is the same,so you do whats best for you.Just be sure to keep a close eye on your ass..Cut the seat part out of the bucket and sink a cushion into the hole,ive seen it done..
