76 here. Don't mind towing, love to travel. Bending to hook-up and unhook is getting tough and the rough ride ride on some roads is pretty tiring. Have to farm out most of the maintenance now. Don't know how much longer I will go. My body will tell me. It's been fun.

You remind me of my uncle. He is 70 and he is very active (sometimes I think he is more active than many young men [emoticon] ). He likes traveling and camping. Though my uncle has never been married, he is never alone. He finds partners on the ourtime dating site for seniors (you can check the ourtime dating reviews if interested). And he also always says that his body will tell him when it is time to stop.

The Judge was an old man (Too Old)
Ninety Three (Entirely Too Old)
And I didn't like the way... The Jury looked at me
(I think they were suspicious)

(They were GUILTY 99 years hard labor (At least they did not hang him)


Home was where I park it. but alas the.

[emoticon] Wow that's cool. I'm 57 and have given up any dream I ever had of driving a race car. I don't even like driving in heavy traffic anymore.
