Re: Does cruising keep you young?

I'm a young 42, at my 20 year h.s. reunion, some of my old friends were bald and grey and fat and wrinkly, I was lean and tan and flexable. I attribute it to over 20 years of living and cruising aboard. My grandpa and grandma did it 'till 72, and only stopped because he was hit by a car in the key's, riding his fold up bike towing a little trailer with two jerry cans of deisel back to his boat. I see people like Kilarny mentioned and Trav.Easy, I'm convinced that it keep's us young. Nice to think I have 30 years plus of cruising ahead of me provided my health holds up. A lot of the tug captains in my fleat are 65 and up.
