Thanks Trapper! Its good to feel a bit more confident that my fat butt isn't just going to snap this thing like a twig. Or step off the lift and poof I'm waist deep in snow. haha
I'm hoping as I get going on this, and assuming it isn't too much for my back, the more I do the more motivated I'd be to lose some of the weight and just make this easier overall for me. This is pretty exciting for me, I've done some canoing since surgery but this will be the first active sport since. It's been so long and at times I didn't think i'd ever get back out there living life!
