    I just came back from 2hours + power walking in the pool, much warmer than the local beaches.
    Steve it's good to know that people do still help each other when in trouble

    If you can walk in water then you can swim. I swim 2.5 kms in a 50 m. outdoor heated pool twice a week. Only death will stop me from doing that!

    I've just spent 3 months getting rid of an incorrigable fungal + ear infection, if my ENT specialist says "No swimming" I am not swimming, I hated being deaf and don't want a repetition

    Aw, Moondog. It is really sucky not being able to get out into the snow and backcountry. I know that feeling as I spend all year looking forward to skiing and so far have not been able to get there. When my friends bailed on me this Thursday, I must say I shed a few tears at work. People who haven't come face up to living with the circling shark of cancer probably don't understand the kind of desperation that comes from knowing that things can turn downhill fast (and not in the skiing kind of way): so in some ways when it comes to accepting pain and crazy mood swings I mostly accept it and keep breathing but when it comes to skiing I'm really impatient and want it NOW! Saying that, I must say I got to sit in the sun yesterday by the water and I did think why the .... would I want to be in the freezing cold. Ah, we all know. Has anyone offered yet to stick you on a sled and at least hoik you as far as a tent?

    Ah Come-on now; the only pleasure I get in life at the moment is making the rest of you miserable.
    Besides; having a whinge is very theraputic and these pages are so much cheaper than a licensed shrink.
    Actually I have pulled the sewing machine out and I amworking on stuff.. Made a synthetic half bag for emergency use already. Sewn up liners for the old woollen battle dress I'll be taking to Aaska and Canada for the hot tent snowshoeing trip in a couple of years, I'll do the double knees on the BD soon then do the Nikwax thing with the woollies.
    Now that I have a decent pain medication solution things are a tad easier.
    Again "Thanx Fellers and Fellerettes"
