Being Old SUCKS........There is just not good way to spin that. Having a young heart and a old body, you are still limited by the old body. I got the new winter survival packs assembled, and decided to hump it out to "GULL ROCK" today. I do 4.2 miles per hour on the Hope Road, average over 4 to 5 miles. And figure I am good for 3.5 to 3.7 MPH over a fair trail.
So today I humped a 32# survival pack out to "GULL ROCK" and did 3.2 MPH (which really sucks) To make matters worse I really had to dig deep to finish the 13 R/T mile trip. Note: they have extended the trail about one mile each way.
I'll do better next week, but I fear it is a loosing enterprise.
