i live in a basement, so i can't really move it anywhere. when i purchased it, i actually had a discussion with the other people in the house over where to put it. i know i won't use it if i move it into a "common" area. (i'm wicked self-conscious about exercising in front of other people. plus, if it was upstairs, it would be on their tv, so if they wanted to watch tv, i wouldn't be able to use my wii)
i found some pieces of cardboard that i stacked to level out the wii. it's just two pieces and it seems sturdy and doesn't shift around when i stand on it. hopefully it will work. i'll keep any eye on it and be careful the first few times i use it. i sort of expect the cardboard to flatten out over time, but for now, i'll give it a shot.
i think i'll be ok in regards to shin splints, since i live down here in the basement, i'm used to the concrete and used to paying extra attention to my shins, ankles, and feet because i know concrete isn't the best surface to walk on.
thanks for replying. i can tell this is a really great, supportive team.
ps - your landlord also sounds like a really nice, really supportive person. :)
