I haven’t used my walker since I began walking the summer of 2004. I was so proud to have graduated to canes, first two & now one for quite awhile, that I vowed never to use it again. But I now realize that most of my longer distance walking is when I have a shopping cart to push. Maybe the walker would be a good idea for walking outside, hadn’t really thought of that.

hi jeff! i’m so proud of you. that’s what i do when i go for a long distance walk. if it’s a planned walk around the lake or park, etc., i use my walker. i always keep my wheelchair in my car in case i have an unexpected walk and i walk behind it and use it as a walker. (it also doubles as a great shopping cart to hold all the stuff you didn’t plan on buying too). anyway, dust off the walker and enjoy your walks as i do. my body tells me when i’ve over done it. just listen to your body when it’s had enough. it’s a wonderful feeling to go for a nice walk in the wonderful weather we’ve been having. even if it means using something to assist us in doing so. stay well.
love ya,
