Your a grandpa too?! You post younger grin. I need to do an age survey of this site; I suspect it will turn out to be something like an old trekkers brain trust.

Back to your post. Patience would be the main answer. Patience with other people in particular. I understand what my body is telling me most of the time and what that is HAS changed over the years.

But cutting back? Nooooo. I can't wait to get back to higher altitudes. I may be slower, but I feel better the more exercise I get and Patty is starting to get the bug again as well. With one son in college and a daughter in high school, we are thinking in a few years we will not be relegated to planning our lives around the kids school schedule anymore. With our eldest studying to be a French Horn player, I am not expecting grand kids anytime soon.
