I spent a week in the hospital in July 07 when I was first diagnosed. Supposed to be in the mountains for our annual camp-out and trail ride. After colonoscopy GI said I wouldn't feel like riding a horse but made it out for the last week and riding 6 hours a day. Fortunately, as of yet, I do not have diarrhea with my Crohn's.
Happy trails to you!
