Re: Stem Cell Treatment for Shoulder?

An experienced orthopedic surgeon said they wouldn’t recommend it for a particular knee injury because it could cause more scar tissue to grow. I haven’t researched it but would be cautious given the advertising I have seen that seems to position it like a miracle cure and some of the some of those ...

Re: Epirb? flares? 2 way radio set to maritime channel, cell ph in a waterproof case?

Garmin’s web site says the InReach Mini will not be available for another 3 to 5 weeks. Other than the subscription cost it is hard to beat, and the small size is outstanding since the best rescue device is the one you have with you at the time you need it (too big and it might be left behind). The ...

Also called the parent company of Ocean Signal (PLB1), Artex and asked about their new version that looks like PLB1 and it is bigger ...

Re: What's the dumbest thing you have seen a newbie do?

Saw a guy with too big a kite for the wind hot launch and Superman on his chest into the sand and get dragged. Another guy on the beach launched and instead of turning the kite out to the water went back over the top toward inland and drove it all the way down into the beach almost on top of an inst...

This would also require a license test but would be useable on land. On Spot, anyone considering should be sure to check their satellite coverage since it is ...
