    So slow... Ain't that the truth

    After two years post. That's very encouraging.

    I set myself up with similar goals as well.
    The lastest is to squeeze some toothpaste out with my right hand. Sigh, not yet but maybe some day.

    Kind of redefines patience, don't it.

    Doh!

    Kewl stuff, RR. WTG!

    Okay, so progress slows. However, when you conquer the majo jar, other things in life take on possibility. Funny how a jar of bread spread can do that for us.

    Serious condiment envy here. Your mayo looks so delish, so uber kewl compared to my squeeze it from the plastic bottle with the flip top kind.

    Hi VD,

    The lift is a cable winch available at many catalog distributors or Harbor Frieght for under a hundred bucks. It's cheap and I have had to fiddle with the wiring due to hanging loads. That is, the strain relief is not adequate. But for the most part, it's great.


    I use a 20" spreader bar over my head and use carabiners to connect to the parachute harness. I mounted the winch on rollers and installed them into a 6' track lagged to the girder truss in the ceiling.

    I put the harness on in my bedroom, roll out to the garage, hook in, slide myself over the trainer (like a slab of beef), lower myself to slip my feet into the sandals mounted on the foot plates, then raise to a walking level and go!

    Let me know if there are any questions. Pat

    Thanks Pat,

    It's pretty clever.I may be able to make similar one in the back of the garage.I'll have to wait until after Topanga arrrives and we get a routine.
