    Sorry to hear.
    Winder guide wheel on the goose neck (with wide spreader attachment for soft sand and quick release shifter) will be the risk management remedy for the surf club here, I think.

    Just like a pneumatic Jockey wheel, but with a crank or quick release.The ones with the hinged attachments (not the one pictured below) allow it to ride parallel to the trailer tongue.

    Without sounding like an unsympathetic, OH&S nazi, you should never 'have' to manually lift and drop a trailer...

    Many variables loading and hitching on the beach.
    Usually the acces to the sand is in the gutter / deepest hole so is steepest edge to the water and if any surf as on Saturday it's a quick snatch n run.
    The big flat bars , that are better to load are not so easy to get ski to trailer to ATV.
    OHS goes nuts we can only launch from a ramp.
    I'll have a good at these on pc and definitely put them on the table.
    Thx.
    Appreciate your input.

    Number one son was showing his brother a few scateboard tricks on Christmas Eve when it all went pear shaped and he took a bad tumble. The scan results came back today and he has a torn ACL and maybe a fractured tibea. There goes Japow 2019:(

    He'll be fine by then if he does what hes told by the physio.
    Assuming the tibea fracture not too complicated.

    Surgery isn't until April. He probably won't have time to fully recover plus loss of income won't help either. This was always going to be a group trip and everyone else has pretty well scrubbed it including me. I might have to settle for September slops at perisher again.

    Physio has given me a take-away program now that I’m mobile so we can get back to travelling. It includes practicing walking on my toes... so for your amusement...

    Still plugging away. Turns out the muscles were corked more than torn. It seems if that's bad enough and you don't get therapy bone can grow inside

    Ouch! Do the work!

    I have to say I’ve been smashing my physio exercise routine. I’m actually amazed at where I’m at, really didn’t expect to be this far along. 1st thing in the morning, and if I’ve been sitting a while then I walk like a duck. But, after I’ve been moving for a bit I can walk without any noticeable limp on even surfaces, with caution on slopes, up stairs are no problem but downstairs is still very slow and steady. I can’t quite land on my toes and lower properly so I tends to stomp downs stairs a bit flat footed... it’s a work in progress. Steep up slopes are hard too... big stretches :eek: I’m using 1 crutch in public, mostly so other people give me a bit of space and latitude for slowness, and here in Bali o the uneven ground it’s a help.

    Each winter I get sore knees and use elastic knee braces to warm them up before I hit the slopes. It helps big time. The pain area is directly below the kneecap. Last night doing nothing (legs up watching Netflix) my left knee started getting sore in that spot. The traditional rub just under the knee cap made it worse. As the night wore on, the pain grew. Why????? I didn't do anything. I woke at 2am in pain and struggled to get back to sleep but strangely enough, by 7am when I woke, there was barely any pain. Happy chappy. Having to do BAS crap, I spent most of the day on chairs and again, the pain returned. Still there. I will seek professional advice tomorrow if it continues but I hoped someone may have some personal experience or suggestions to guide me?

    If you're like me its Patella Tendonapathy. See a sports physio to get the appropriate stretches and exercises.

    Sounds positive, relatively. Thanks. Weird how something can happen out of the blue - mid 50's stuff??? I wasn't doing anything strenuous at all - driving the tractor for a few hours, vibration etc, but no impact or twisting of any nature.

    I've been to a exercise physiologist recently to get pre trip program for legs and core.
    I get regular intermittent pain same area.
    Thought it patella tendonitis...
    He commented mine may be related to meniscus damage.
    I am on my feet most days , some days stuck in Office.
    I don't jog , to avoid more impact on shins and knees etc.
    Find a physio etc as @Telemark Phat suggested.
    Good if you find one can keep tabs on you moving forward.
    The guy I check in with now did my rehab when I did ACL a few years back so is perfect go to for me...
