>You can get a grout tool if it isn't a large area, or use a Dremel tool
It is the whole tub surround about 5 ft high - a large area. I have tried
the grout tool and rapidly concluded that by the time i remove the ground
from between the 4 x 6 tiles my torn rotor cuff will be in much worst shape

Do I have to remove all of the old grout or can I go to a certain
unspecified depth (which is?)
As you can tell, i have never done this before.

That is what I have been doing - glad I did not miss an obvious easier
technique. It must cost a fortune to have a professional come in and do
the re-grouting and re-caulking job
