I am a: 74-year-old
Location: Evanston, IL
Occupation: attorney now retired

Affiliations: No affiliations. Unfortunately, probably have to give up backpacking. Just spent one night out on a planned three night trip. Had terrible leg cramps at night and trouble carrying the 40 pound pack the short distance of 2 1/2 miles.. At my age (almost 74), don't want to invest in ultra-ultra-ultra light gear I see on youtube. Will do day hikes and what my internist did: give up backpacking for wilderness canoeing and let the canoe carry the load
