Saddle sore…

For anyone whose ever ridden a horse for any amount of time, you’ll confirm that the first couple of days is not fun.  Exercising muscles that you don’t usually use and sitting in a saddle for extended amount of time leads to something rather unpleasant…a sore bottom.  Add a medical issue like hemorroids, and the situation gets even worse.

Well, driving for long distances can cause the same problems with the portion of your body you sit on.  Not so much the leg muscles, but your bottom and tailbone can really start to suffer after a while.  And, depending on your vehicle, not have adequate adjustments or a place to rest your arms can make things worse.

So, today, I’d like to introduce you to the Kabooti cushion.  For anyone who’s required a tailbone cushion, these are one of the best, in my opinion.  The Kabooti is made of a memory foam type material and can be ordered with options to allow a cool/heat pack to be place in just the right position.

In my case, I suffer from gout in my right elbow and not so much from issues from sitting.  So how did this help me you may ask.  Turns out that the Kabooti with a cool pack placed on my center console was just perfect to relieve any pressure on my elbow.  I can very honestly say that the Kabooti was a god-send on my trip.

If you have such issues, I strongly recommend looking into purchasing a Kabooti, or something similar.

A personal note…

So, I wanted to let everyone know that I appreciate your visit.  I also wanted to let you know that everything I write about, I actually did unless I tell you otherwise.  For any product, service, or location I write about I have visited and I only give support to those products and services I think highly of.

While this started out, and will continue for some time, about my travels from Texas through Canada to Alaska and back home again, I hope to take and document trips to other locations in the future.  As I do, I invite you to follow along.

If you have a suggestion, please comment.  I appreciate any ideas or comments you may have.
