No advice here, CharlieD. I make sure when I go s/where in my car, I park at the far side of the parking lot. If there are stairs, I take the stairs. I also store a lot of stuff in my basement, so am up and down the stairs several times/day. I keep a set of hand weights by the couch and if I'm watching TV, I do some lifts during commercials, ditto for the stretch band. I also picked up a DVD set - Slim in 6 - at the Goodwill and pop that in the DVD player 3x / week. Is there a mall nearby that has morning walks? This is one way to walk without having to deal with the weather.

Good luck, whatever route you take!

I don't have issues with anyone who does their walking outside. It is actually better for you than the treadmill, because with an electric treadmill, the treadmill is moving you and you are exerting less energy. And walking outside is free. I used to walk outside 20 years ago but for one thing, my health is not as good as it was and I am concerned that something will happen if I am out there walking. If I'm on my treadmill all I have to do is turn it off and stop. Also, my husband is here if something happens. The second concern is that my neighbors are not all good about keeping their dogs on a leash or in a fenced in yard. I love dogs, but not when a strange one is barking and chasing me up the street. Traveling to the park to walk takes time, and I could already be walking on my treadmill for that time period.

Medical ID Carol...I have a key fob USB with all my medical files AND a medical ID pendant. I don't leave home without them. I also walk in a well traveled area by the YMCA.

I like those!! Mine is easy to update, it also has a form/template to fill out. It's the most current info I have and the program is on the USB so it can be used with any computer. And I can keep Shrek on there, too.

Do the EMTs usually have access to a computer "on the scene"?

They do now with EMR (Electronic Medical Records) at least here in Missoula. Tied to both hospitals and the 2 clinics that I use. They are used now to transmit vitals, etc. to the receiving ER's and the Docs on Call.

Oh, I understand there's ways to be protected. It's just not for me. I prefer to be inside on my exercise equipment.
