What my daughter said on my 50th birthday (yikes, that's almost 23 years ago!):

"When you are over the hill, you start going downhill. As any skier can tell you, that's lots more fun!"

I'll be out there hiking and having fun as long as I can manage to put one foot in front of the other!
May your trails be crooked, winding, lonesome, dangerous, leading to the most amazing view--E. Abbey
