    I too am trying to overcome odds by trying to push my manual chair even though my route is from the kitchen to my bedroom. I feel damn good about it too when get there faster or with less effort , but when it comes time to adventure out in the "REAL" world I'll be in my power chair.
    A voice of reason. Very well put.

    Good post, Danny.

    But a power toothbrush?! You're so fucking weak, you're not half the man I am. You will never reach you're full potential, you slackass.

    Thanks Russ; U2. I've got a lot of time invested in "the boards" and although I don't post too much, I guess they are a coping mechanism.

    We joined around the same time but I have 10 times more posts. And I didn't even come to the board for more than two years. Sometimes it seems like yesterday I was meeting you and other CC folk at the NY Metro Abilities Expo back in '02... time flies.

    you wanna debate abortion, i'm all for it... just not here, start another thread under polotics.
    i understand exactly where the p/c guys are coming from... hell, i still use mine when i'm helping w/ yard work or 'walking' my dog. but i'm doing everything i can so i don't have to rely on power.
    i see it like this... after a full day in my manual chair, going to therapy, handbike, and uppertone i'm beat. i mean completely shot, but i love the feeling simply because i know i'm gonna be a little bit stronger because of it. not everyone will see it the same way, and its understandable.
    it is just like being ab... i ran 5 miles a day on top of lifting simply because it kept me in shape and i felt better at the end of the day. not every other ab did that... some physically couldn't, some did more/less, and some flat didn't care.
    that is just how i see it

    at your injury level with the current chair setup in your profile pic, yeah you'd probably fall over... nothing wrong w/ them in this case.

    however... if/when you get a new chair, I'd strongly suggest one with more dump (i.e. the back of your seat 3-4 inches lower than the front), which will give you significantly more stability.
