I think I am the youngest member in here???

Well probably not.

I have never seen a age thread in here but none the less we are 37, 35, and 8.

We do sometimes get teased for showing up in a fairly large fifth wheel, but I don't care. I have been camping all my life, from roughing it to this. I can still survive in the woods but I don't need to anymore. I am just limited in where we can take this rig.

Feel free to post you age in here, or not.

Hey, if you can afford it, more power to ya!
We had to wait until 'freedom 55' to get our new Flagstaff 5er, but plan to use it to the fullest.
Anyone who bugs you is just jealous!

That one just came up on Jeopardy as the Final Jeopardy answer. No the question wasn't how old is Kim...

I guess a big question would be how old do you feel vs. how old do you act???

Oh in that case I feel about 65 most of the time. I know it's the job getting to me though. When I get away from that place for a week I feel much better. But then don't we all?

37 for wife/I and we have a 5 year old. Growing up I always camped with my family and hopefully my son will have the same memories growing up.

First we all are young,... then we hit middle age,... then we hit old, the question is when do we hit ...ANCIENT? Age is just a number so live it up I work with a bunch of younger Guys and all ways hear the words "OLD MAN" and I tell them, the day when I can't carry my own tool bag is the day I am gone and I don't want to hear from a bunch of crying babies about how hot it is on a roof or about paper cuts, hard work will not hert them....Here It's all in fun.

I'm 52 and the wife is 58. A week ago on vacation I felt 20 years younger. Here at work with all of the 20 somethings running around I am back to 52.

If Mr Black is the youngest my wife & I must be the oldest! Both 75 years young & just bought a new camper this year. Didn't start RV'ing until 94 when we bought a used pickup/trailer combo. In 2000 bought a new 5th wheel. Now we have downsized to a small 1/2 ton tow-able TT.
