Well said!

My vote was "60s" but if anyone asks my age I usually answer "59… for the third time!" Otherwise I say "Fiftyleven."
The longest decade of my life will be the ten years between 59 and 60!

I'm 79; told I look 69 ; try to act 59; and SOMETIMES wish I were 49 (naaa) and look for about 3 more years of towing.
Wife is younger (can't say) we keep active walking, biking and glamping.

I feel 35 on the inside and look 90 on the outside.
Does that mean, 35 + 90 = 125 divided by 2 = 62.5???
I'll take that.

I bought my unit well over a decade ago from a gentleman who was 91; his fourth and a continuous Airstream owner since 1948. He, too, was a forums member and only selling because his sons (in their late sixties) felt their parents were too exposed to danger on the road at that age. It was an emotional moment when we closed the deal! You are only as hampered by age as your health dictates.

We are in our fourteenth year of Airstreaming, and are closing in on 2,000 nights of Airstream Camping. I am writing this from the Airstream sitting in a campground in Alaska. We started in our fifties, went all through our sixties, and we both have just turned 70. Our health has been good and we are hoping to get another ten years of Airstreaming under our belts before father time catches up with us.

Remember that the only things that you can take with you are your memories.

It might be good to set up a similar poll on Airstream Facebook Airstream user pages to see if the age distribution results correlate.
Start a poll here, how many of us are on the 'book'?
I joined the IPO but that's as about far as my participation goes.😂

I am 69 and my wife 70. We are getting ready to downsize, get rid of our house (maybe) and go full time.
