It's surprisingly arduous, it includes crossing bogs, and even climbing up a waterfall - sometimes with the water actually flowing. I've done it several times, but always alone. I don't know anybody fit enough to do it - until being asked to lead the pensioners. They're not even asking me to go for the sake of having somebody relatively young and healthy, they're asking me because it can be surprisingly difficult to navigate your first time round.

They showed a lady in the news the other day that is soon to be celebrating
her upcoming 100 birthday. She runs in marathons. She taught herself to
play the organ when in her 80's. She completed her masters degree at the
age of 98.....now she is focusing on getting her doctorate.
No doubt genes play a role but I think our mind set, life style, activity and
what we eat, makes a very big difference.
These are rare and very unique cases. I mean what good will it do her to get her masters and doctorate at her age anyway, other than personal satisfaction maybe, though she should spend the rest of her life enjoying it rather than studying.
To be honest I would not want to make it to 80 I'd rather die and die young and healthy.
I pray every single day that I get taken long before 80. 60 would be good, I think it's enough.
With the sh**** world that is becoming, evil all around, crap all around, I don't think I want to be there to see it.
That said, if I do manage to live to 80 and healthy then so be it, to me health is the most important thing.
That's the truth. I had a yard sale benefitting a local animal shelter. One person donated a very ugly, rusty wood stove which didn't sell and weighed a ton. It was stuck on my front porch for awhile. I was desperate. Put it on Ebay and a guy drove from 3 states away to pick it up. I was amazed.
