what about shimming the saddle higher on the left side to balance her

Yep, have several things to try.   I have had many good 
suggestions...also talked to Arlo at Skito, who suggested some 
shimming, or attaching ties to the back of the pad so I could tie it 
to the back dees in my saddle. This would anchor the pad fore and 
aft.  I must say, their concern for good customer service is *very* 
much appreciated. 

I'll be trying some of these different suggestions this weekend.  

Thanks to you and EVERYONE for all your excellent  input.....RideCamp is GREAT!!

Will let you know how the "one rat" tests go   : )
