There are a lot of people who retire and drop dead from boredom.
I read that somewhere.

It probably is true that framers and the like have the years taken off. Then again, no telling how long anyone is going to be around no matter what they have ever done or not done because of accidents, cancer, whatever. Seeing people die who are much younger makes one think: need to get out on the road!

Camping is really another world with so many nice places to stay. Wish we could get to half of them.
