The hiking stick is good except for one thing. It telescopes like a tripod to the correct height, but I found when I leaned on it going down hill it often slipped. There may be a way to lock it into position.I hope to find out. Other than that, it was a great boon, giving me greater stability, allowing me to stay more erect.
I hurt so much now though. I think I have a bottle of arthritis pills in the car but I haven't the strength to go get them.There might be another bottle in my suitcase, in my bedroom.
