....where the wise, young at heart, yet of diminishing health, stamina egg etc, can post stuff about whatever outings they manage? Like me 64 (65 soon) in need of walking poles and any other aids WE need to get ourselves out into nature. We could exchange methods of coping and managing degrees of failing strength and whatever else, BUT, to stay positive, exchange tips on how to do whatever necessary to get our old backsides out of doors. Something like this? PLEASE DONT TAKE THIS CLIP TOO SERIOUSLY??? :):):)

Good idea :)

The Scots have an incentive. They get a free bus pass at 60, and with that you can travel pretty much countrywide. Himself uses it to go up to Aviemore or Fort William for a days walking/climbing.
They even feed you coffee and biscuits/sandwiches free on the long haul bus trips too.
Reduced fares on the ferry across to Arran too, which makes it an excellent day out.

I'm not eligible, yet, but it's coming :rolleyes:

Just now my hip and knee (sprained) is aching so badly that I can't walk to the end of the street and back without wanting to cry.
It'll settle, but just now, ehm, no, and the garden's about my stretch. At least it's next to woodland and we get a lot of wildlife visiting. I'm enjoying painting again, I'm making my own herbal :) just for the fun of it :) Keeps me in touch with the seasons and the whole turning of the year.

“stamina egg”

Well, the fabled stamina egg was unveiled as a scam some years ago, I’m sorry to see another victim. :lmao:

Auto spell is a pain at times. Nice idea, I’m only mid fifties and have a titanium hip and the other in MOT failure condition. Walking with poles, particularly with a 3 day pack has been so much easier since I got over the stigma.

I see two threads, there used to be an option to edit thread titles.

Stigma? My backside!!:)
I have my name down for a new hip and the old knees are buggered anyway but can't get new ones as I want to keep canoeing.
Guess we have to restrict a future "grey bushcrafter" corner for the over 60's and keep these 50+ sprogs well away :bawling::bawling::bawling:

Let's face it\, when I watched the above clip i thought to myself............. "who the hell is this old git, bent over and obviously in pain lifting his own rucksack!?"
Well, unfortunately it's me. Took awhile to put this one away

What about when you start two identical threads with the same title, in the same forum, with the same opening post, 1h15m apart? That seems a prime case of both needing help with the forum and forgetting what you have said! ;)

Don't worry, I merged your threads and tidied up :D

It's a nice idea! Are you thinking of a Forum? I'm not sure if that will work because it needs to be fairly well used, so regular threads and posts, we could make some labels available so threads can be marked as 'Old Timers' or some such.. Like the prefix's in the out and about forums.

Opinions?

If you call it oldtimers, you better take care with where you put an apostrophe. Deeply honoured at the possible naming of a forum after me but beginning to see why the ignore button was introduced!
