No, no, we're all youngsters, we're just older than you are. I'm 49 and my partner is 46, our Airstream is 47 and my Dodge Dart is 43.

its all about when you peak

this 60's person has a whole different perspective. i am 67 years old and grizzled. yet i am still performing in the rock and roll game. but the real deal is that because of my radio and tv ventures i have an income of $12,000,000 a year. i bought a 93 land yacht legacy last october (my first venture into the rving world since the popup days of the eighties). i paid 21,000 for it and now have more than 75,000 invested in it. i like classic things that are totally perfect. my advice to you is dont peak too soon. take it real slow up until you die...then taper off. go galt and give the money away to those who really need it.

Love that quote as I am a 72 year old Bill and I am often called Billy.

I don't know if I feel younger because of being called Billy or that I am called Billy because I act young.

Of course, they didn't understand that age means nothing when you're all sitting around the campfire!

i was asked the same thing I told them they were just jealous because It came with a AARP card 40 years early.

I'm 45 and Angela is 44, our dogs are 20 (not a typo!) and 12, and our AS is 34.

Birthdays aren't depressing. MISSING a birthday is depressing!

I am glad to see that someone that has posted here is Older than me. Im so glad we have made it this far. Everyday is a blessing.
TO ANSWER the next QUESTION
I think I was 68 or 69 when we purchased our Airstream. We have loved every minute of it even down to the changing of the axles(which I did) and the re-plumbing due to the carelessness of the PO . We have met many new friends and appreciate them all.

Very nice statement. I'll try to remember it when I stress about getting older, which I do frequently. 20? What kind of dog? That's great.
