I "turn 65" (as George Carlin says) on April 4.

Skiing of all types, backpacking, sea kayaking and keeping up with leather-lunged sexegenerian women on Sierra Club hikes is the reason I work out constantly. Grand Canyon rim-to-rim in April is next -right after my two weeks skiing in Colorado this Feb. -March.

I figure I've got at least another 10 years of backpacking in me..especially after the new helium-assisted packs hit the market!
