Our family went on vacation to a dude ranch in Colorado.  I rode horseback about 45 miles during the week, with one trip up to a 10,200 feet peak.  I was able to get on and off that horsey by myself.  I also braved the class 3 rapids and 38 degree water and loved every minute of it.  This was the best vacation I can remember because I could freakin' do anything I wanted and felt great doing it!

I love my new life.

Awesome stuff Julie!

Did you get to camp under the stars while riding too?

Yes, T2 - thanks for noticing!


I could have slept out under the stars, but decided not to this trip.  Needed my evening hot tub time!

Thanks everyone.  It was so amazing how much I can do and how little I was effected by the altitude as well!

Congratulations Julie.  I love that you can now do things you couldn't do.  We were looking for a life vest that would fit me a couple of weeks ago to go kayaking...didn't happen...it is good to see that your's fit with you problems.  It gives me hope!!!
