Really nice story. Something for us all to look forward to!
This is inspirational. People need to stay busy as they age for their health and so they can continue to do the things they care about.

While backpacking deep 20 miles from a trailhead in the Grand Canyon, I met two senior citizen couple the oldest woman was 96, her husband was 82 the other couple were their children 20 years younger. The 96 year old told me that she had been a ranchers wife for 60 years helping break horses all her life and when she retired she took up backpacking.
Another man I used to know in the Grand Canyon hike 106 Rim 2 Rims in 12 months when he was celebrating his 86 year.
