Beautiful.

I don't think I could walk that on my healthiest day

MS: First sx '93 dx '09 no obvious relapses just steady decline since '07. Crippling fatigue, too weak to sit up for extended periods of time. Cane/walkers/electric chair inside, helicopter outside. 

Started protocol 11/16/13.  1200mg N

It keeps cutting off my sentences even if all there in the preview. I wanted to say that I enjoyed that, thanks Trent.

I did a semester abroad in Neuchatel and never hiked there; so I guess I never will. (Ran around the hilly fields of Grundelwald -- does that count?) You can be my stand-in.

PPMS-misdiagnosed 2001-diagnosed 2006. Probably caught cpn in birth canal but it didn't pass BBB until my 40s. Minocycline 7 mos.- resulting bronchitis 5 months.Go to private m.d. out-of-plan. Wheldon CAP 3/2/07 Stopped 12/12; resumed 12/13

Trent,

There appears to be a number of potential places to walk here - all awesome. 

Here's to a smooth recovery - and a complete enough recovery to walk anywhere you want in that gorgeous valley or mountains....

Best & Highest Regards,

Tom

Hi Trent,

So, I'm sitting in my front-room watching a tv show last night - something about addiction and how it manifests itself. 

Towards the end of the show - there is a piece about folks who "Base Jump" - which apparently is jumping from really high places, sometimes with just a parachute - sometimes with suits that have what are generously referred to as "Wings." 

These guys are jumping off of some tall mountain or cliff - with these "Wings" - and doing what they call "flying" - but what I'd have to call "falling" in a coordinated fashion - in, of all places - LAUTERBRUNNEN VALLEY, SWISS ALPS - amazing stuff.   Stuff I will never do - and would never consider doing.

One of the guys was wearing some sort of camera on his helmut - providing a breathtaking view of the valley etc. as he is "flying" down the side of a huge cliff.

I would far rather walk that, than attempt what these two guys did.

Here's wishing you as smooth and complete a recovery as possible - and I do hope you can take that walk in that valley again soon!

Best & Highest Regards,

Tom
