I just start my first walk... I live New Hampshire and I am walking to my hometown of Seattle, Washington... I have walked 5.6 miles (i believe) so far.

I'm ready to start a new walk! The last time, I walked across the US to my mother's house on the east coast. This time, I've picked a closer goal--Taos, New Mexico. It's one of my favorite places on earth, and I think I'll be able to visualize my progress better on a shorter walk. Wish me luck!

I have actually been using an ointment or liniment used on horses and that works great. I have used it for years for my arthritis. Thanks for your suggestion. I have just started walking again but very slowly to strengthen my knee and get back into shape.

I have managed 6.33 miles out of my 3190.67 mile treck. Didn't walk today as I climbed up and down a ladder about 100+ times and too exhausted to actually walk. I know what it is like to have injuries. I have a bonespur, tarsal tunnel, tendonitis, pinched nerve, arthritis and rhenoids disease in the heel of my foot. It is not a fun thing but I don't think any more surgeries will help so I just learn to deal with it. One thing you can try is see if your doctor will give you a sample of Voltaren Gel. It is a numbing gel that works wonders on a lot of things.

Get yourself some Mangosteen juice, and drink 1 ounce of it a day. Sure makes my knees feel better!

At this point, nowhere. I hurt my knee at the beginning of August and have reinjured several times during the last few weeks. I even had to miss 11 days of work. I've been back to work for 6 days. My knee still hurts. But I will start walking tomorrow. I think I will walk to Uvalde, TX to visit my son. That's about about 130 miles. Since I have to start slowly, I will give myself until Thanksgiving Day. Hope my knee holds up and it gets stronger with the exercise.
