Try this on some relatively easy trails that have some rough footing and you'll see just what I mean.

I'm happy to hear that you are enjoying your new found freedoms!

Hiking poles are another nice advantage on really crappy trails. Having a third and fourth point of balance instead of just your feet makes life much easier. Especially when going back down a rough trail.
