hiking 30:00 
Walked to the chiropractor and back. Discovered a problem in my right abdominal/hip area that has been the cause of the instability of the spine all along. Will have to rectify this before I can proceed with anything else.
The plot thickens.....
Still, so nice to have the pain diminished. Optimistic that this WILL get resolved. Funny how it puts things in perspective. When you can only walk a few kilometers a day, you really appreciate all the great outdoor activities you used to enjoy.
