I finished up my Duck Stilts last night and tried them on. How do you guys stand up in them? I was sitting in a chair (which might be part of the problem) and couldn't get out of it. Do I need to do a high stool?

Come to think of it, I've yet to sit down with the feet on so I can't really tell you. Laughing Laughing
Sounds like something I need to try.

Whoah, lemme get this straight... now they're called "Duck Stilts"?? Does that mean I'm liable if you break your neck?!

As for getting up from a sitting position, well, it's kinda tough, but you'll get used to it. By my third troop my feet and calves were accustomed to most actions and were conditioned to stuff like that. I mean, now I can jump on a trampoline in them.

You do really need to lean into your knees, taking them right to the chest, to get out of a chair. These days, though, I just put my shoes on while standing.

Nah, you're not liable, I'm just lazy and figured everyone would know what I meant. Thanks for the help on how to stand. And I'll try just stepping into them when I get back home.
