I agree with Codybear....it is just a number and we do NOT do numbers. We are both still working and enjoy work, play. We purchased our first Airstream 2006 July. Took 2 short trips to the Finger Lakes region.

We have met many neat people on the Airstream Forum and looking forward to meeting many on our future trips. Don't do the numbers. Do what you enjoying doing. Enjoy life.

As the old saying goes - "If I had known I was going to live this long I would have taken better care of myself!" I honestly can't believe that I'll be 68 next week. I'm still wondering what I'm going to do when I grow up!

Brad and I are both 55. I am the older woman at 42 days older. So we are both old enough to know better and take much more delight when we decide to act as if we didn't. Kind of the best of both worlds. I think it is very cool to see our senior seniors active and Airstreaming and it is no exaggeration that some folks run rings around the younger generations. I used to think I would be very cool and come into my own by 50, now I have pushed the bar back to 65 and then hope to hold for another couple of decades beyond that, here's hoping. Have some wonderful role models out there!

I'm surprised at how many seniors work! It sure helps pay for the toys - and travel - and grrrrr, health care.

I looked up the spread of ages in our forum and think soldiermedic and I better get together to make up some numbers for representation as we are on each end of the spectrum and in great minority. Now we know how he feels. We had never considered age before this, almost 76 now, just retired from full time business two years and now full time playing AS .

That old saying of" you have to grow old, but you don't have to grow up" is a creed I try to live by. I'm 64 and retired as a construction crane operator when I was 55, joined the fire dept. at 59 and became the oldest person to graduate from the fire academy and EMT academy. The structual fires are starting to take their toll on me, but I still love a party.
I enjoy my grandkids and love camping with the younger crowd and some of the above.

Funny how much more cash we have to spend once the birds flew the nest. Hey, we've gained so much just watching our older friends who truely do prove age is a state of mind. True, becoming a great grand parent does make one nervous Another ten years and this pup retires (again) but of course that means sixty hours a week of projects. I just trying to catch up with my big sisters

OK, codybear, just how long have you had your AARP card? Mine is getting all splintery like the floor I just pulled from my Tradewind. And an "Online Senior Couples Rally". That's good, I could party in my underwear and no one would know. But the pot-luck wouldn't be any fun.

"I Don't Need No Rockin' Chair"

My mind thinks I'm in my 20's as well, at least until I roll out of bed with a new creak or groan and take a look into the mirror. I'll stick with my mind's thought. We're attending our first Unit Rally next week and are looking forward to the mix in ages, opportunity for new friendships and diversity of thought. Like the George Jones song, "I Don't Need No Rockin' Chair"! Happy Easter one and all and,
HAPPY TRAILS
