Hmm. You used "retired" and "busy" in the same sentence Adrian. Must be some new use of the English language I'm not familiar with.

Well I preached last Sunday two services since the pastor where we have been attending had been in hospital. so you see I can be retired AND busy.

I see the 60's are in the lead now!

Well, if you split it between the young 'uns (under 60), and the ol' timers (60 and older), it is now tied, 22-22.

I will be 59 when I pick it up in July. The waiting is the hardest part.

We sold our Rialta and bought a Scamp in our 50s, and after Mary got tired of me complaining about all the stuff that drove me nuts about the Scamp, she quickly agreed when I showed her all the details about why the Escape was so much better. When we picked it up I was 59 and she was 60.

I was 72 when we got our Escape, which is a metric 49 up here in Canada. It's our first trailer, or RV of any kind. If not now . . . when?

Well, here may be a first - 62 when we picked up our first 19 ( no. 5) and 68 when we pick up our second. Is that double dipping? Only voted once on the poll though...

I was 62 and DW was 63 when we got the first one. 64 and 65 when we picked up the Skylark. Before that it was a series of VW Westphalia and a winnebago euro van conversion.

We are retired, but between volunteer work and travel am so busy that I am thinking of hiring an assistant.

Maybe ETI may want to consider "handicap friendly" or age dependent options, like a place for oxygen tanks or wheelchair rack on the rear?
