As an official senior citizen now, I've had to make several changes to my lifestyle recently, that kind of caught me ill equipped and unready. In my more robust younger years it meant nothing to me to hike 10 miles or so through the woods in search of deer or climbing 2000 feet in elevation in the Blue Mountains of Washington State in the quest for elk. If I wanted to go camping for the weekend with friends, making plans to go, only the night before departure, would not have been a problem. A day in the field would last all day long, and then came dinner preparation and clean up, then an hour or two around a campfire with a favorite libation. Not so any more. The onset of senior citizenship has taken its toll on my once rowdy behavior, and forced me into a more reasonable pace.
