One more thing I'd add:

Be careful about assuming mobility for different fat and SS folks. There's such a wide variety of mobility issues, even for folks at the same weight and height. There's a lot of things that factor in, and some SS folks could be upset if it IS assumed that they'd need a drop off, or constantly asked if need a rest when they don't. At least for me, I want to do the most possible in all situations, and that could vary from day to day even!

Good communication is key in striking that balance.

and one more: If you're over 300 lbs with a blister and anywhere on the island of Manhattan, it's going to be a stressful situation. I'm convinced there ARE NO CHAIRS anywhere on the island. Heh!
