We're both 64 and hoping for at least 20 years of retirement. That means I've been enjoying camping in one form or another for about 60 years.

I think you'll find it's hard to get a job at 84.

Gene Im with you I think.I think I'm the oldest ole geezer to check in here.
I'm pushin 73 and the wife is pushin 69, (I robbed the cradle too) I dont feel a day over 50 except when I first get up in the morning then I walk around like Im 103.
Although we dont travel far Im not ready to park the aluminum Yet as long as I can still lift the hitch I'm good.
Everyday is a blessing too me. Im not ready for the alternative YET.GOOD HEALTH TO YOU ALL///\\\ SEE YA DOWN THE ROAD

I don't know about you under-30s - but when we bought our trailer in our early 30's we got a lot of ribbing from folks asking if we were going to have to dye our hair gray to hang with the old folks! Of course, they didn't understand that age means nothing when you're all sitting around the campfire!

…because it's dark out and no one can see the color of your hair.

Mikethefixit, you are older than me and I'm glad someone is; it gives me something to look forward to.

You know, it dawned on me that maybe it'd be interesting to know at what age folks bought their Airstreams. (We were in the 40-to-50 crowd back then.)

78 and loving it. Everybody wories about getting old, but think of the alternative.
People should embrace growing old as lots of people don't make it.
Happy camping nm1oqrz

The universe is about 13.7 billion years old and we are each made of recycled particles that have been floating around in one place or another for that long so, technically, aren't we all the same age at 13.7 billion years?
At the very least my wierd take on age makes 20 somethings a lot closer to 70 somethings in the grand scheme of time, huh?

Old enough to know better; still too young to care...

At least I've stopped making the 'big' goofs... (like the dancer at the 1:40 mark)
