I'm 55 and just lately I've started to realise it. That thing that I used to do all night now takes me all night to do, my eyes are on their third or fourth prescription for specs, paddling 4 or 5 kilometres in the kayak is still easy but the muscles now hurt the next day, If I look at the naked Missus, then open the 'fridge and spot a beer, the beer will win. Sad, isn't it?

Cheers

I'm 63 and sittin' back and enjoyin' life! A little fishing, playing with the grandkids, and lazing away the days on the back porch. And then there are the... Uhmm, what's happening??? I'm hallucinating!!!

Yes, I'm 63. But I'm not sitting on my tush in my advanced years. I'm a contract software developer who specializes in designing Data Warehouse (big database) systems. I still work 60-80 hours a week and rarely have a free moment. I definitely can't complain about the income and I have people constantly trying to hire me (a nice ego boost), but I wish I had more time to take pics and videos.

When I'm not working or remodeling the bathroom (a "modest" project), I spend a little time with my photo/videos pastime. Currently I'm editing a video project for my wife's Aikido dojo. Marianne is 67 and is one belt away from a black belt. (Yes, I'm very proud of her. And if you say one bad word about her, I'll kick... uhmm... I'll get Marianne to kick the crap out of you! :-) )

When the new Panasonic GH2 comes out late this year, I'm probably going to buy one and maybe a Marantz PMD661 (Oade Bros. Super Mod) for audio. (It would be great to retire my Nikon D70 and Canon HV30.) OTOH, if I could find even the slightest justification, I'd jump all over the new Panasonic AF100! One must dream, you know.

One thing I've learned in the last 60-some years is that we need to accept who we are and roll with it. When I was young, I was a geek. But I tried to deny it and make like I was "cool". Over the past several decades, I've learned to accept my innate geekness. I'm a lot happier and satisfied now. It embarrasses the heck out of my stepson, but that's his problem! :-)

Regards,

Dan.

Turned 71 in February.

In pretty good shape. Started to do some of my own wildlife video two years ago, but realized I had a lot to learn still. Spent a year learning the software and practicing with the camera. Recently acquired a nanoflash. Now I am trying to match the results of the pros -- that is a real challenge! Looking forward to my first real season of trying to put together some wildlife material.

I figure I have another 20-25 years of fun video work left yet.

You all seem pretty young to me. I am 67 going on 40. I travel every year for a couple of months and make a video of each trip. So far coverered all seven continents and about 80 countries. Been bitten by the video bug since 1995. Currently have three cameras and four computers. The youngsters are not the only tech savvy types around.

One of your Golden Oldies. 75 and still trying to travel as much as possible capturing wildlife on canon xl hd1a. Been retired since 67 but thinking of going back to work again, I don't seem to have any spare time now I am retired!!!!!

Nice to see such a young entry ahead of mine. Wish him luck for the future.
