Hi Steve! Long time, no type.Yes as we age we all slow down. But, at the end of the day it's all about health. Of course we all have more aches and pains but if the Good Lord made us fortunate enough to were we have no catastrophic illness (And believe me, I know it can happen at any time) then I say keep going for it. I do understand that sizing down can make good sense though, but keep trying to do your hobbies as long as possible. My friend Art is 85 and walks up to my track carrying his Aster Challenger all the time. Try to eat a little better and get a little exercise, it makes a big difference when we are older. That being said anyone can kick the bucket at anytime so try to enjoy every minute.
What a great time if you are young and getting into this hobby. Tons of great stuff on the market going at great prices because of all of this. Sad fact is that most young people could care less about any of the hobbies we like. I know there are exceptions.
I guess I'm also trying to lighten up this thread a little. 🚂🙂🚂
I don't know how things took such a downward (morbid?), turn. I'm not at all sick (and never said I was). It's true that, at 70, my legs are weaker than they once were, but that's not that big of a deal.
Anyway, I'm just trying to be practical. Besides, if I'm not running the stuff anymore, why keep it? I can understand guys keeping stuff they still run. I can also understand people keeping their stuff simply because they love their stuff and don't want to part with it. More power to both groups. I simply made a different choice.
