Today while working at one of my schools volunteering, I was telling my sweet volunteer partner about our planned hiking/camping trip this summer. Probably a decade and a half younger than me---she listened politely until she finally said,
"I am REALLY concerned about you doing this at your age, you need to realize the dangers of this and the fact that you are aging and could become injured---even just getting ready for it."
YOU CAN COUNT ON THIS---IF I HAVE TO CRAWL UP AND DOWN THOSE MOUNTAINS---IT IS A DONE DEAL AT THIS POINT!!! She waved the red flag of you are too old in my face and I will do it now or die trying.
ALL IT TAKES IS A LITTLE MOTIVATION---I'VE GOT THAT NOW--and I'm good to go!
