Hello all. It has been nearly ten years since I have posted on this forum. Not sure why the absence, vicissitudes of life I guess. I’ll be looking in here regularly from now on.
Anyway, I’m a guy in his early 80’s, still backpacking but slower week by week. My last long walk was the JMT in 2014; I was 76 that year. I live in a rural part of SE Arizona and can get out pretty much year-around but prefer warmer weather now.
I’ve started a blog on the subject of backpacking in one’s mature years. It is a bit eclectic but the intent is to share experiences of hiking in our later years. Anyone who might be interested can see it at Theoldbackpacker.com.
