    Once again this was a great show! I’d like to comment on echolocation. I use it a lot, and it is most helpful to me. I have always been a cane user, never roller tips. It’s not that I’m opposed to them, I’ve just never used one. My sister has a marshmallow tip on her cane though. I use the touch technique, and the pencil grip as this is what I was taught and worked on with every O&M instructor I’ve had. I find this technique especially useful in a big dumpster area out in front of my building, as it is a big open space and I tend to veer a lot when traveling. Don’t even get me started on my lack of formal O&M instruction for several years. For that I encourage you to go to my website.
