yep I appreciate him going to the trouble to share his disabled sporting info.

Some of the boys in Houston who have partial use of their upper body was asking questions the other day about building fishing gear they would be able to use so I'll refer them to Lars site.

The majority of the folks I saw when I went to the hospital were 25 to 30 years old and had been at least partial paralyzed due to car wrecks.

Well just use a lower fence when yo feel like jumping, clod. lol
Lars, i too had a stroke about a year ago, and i recently went back and read an old Friday report from when i was in therapy. Boy, it's been a long trail from there! I thought my arm was about as good as it could get and i couldn't swing a hammer for 6 months but every day it gets a little better, even now. I've cast a fishing line, reach to pull the car door shut, hold a pistol reasonably steady, comb my hair, lotsa things. Write you status down and look back after awhile - yup it gets better! :)
