John Glenn 1921-2016

Only 7 people who walked on the moon are still alive. I know it gets thrown around a lot, but we need this kind of goal again.

Yes, I realize he didn't. Just thinking out loud.

Along the lines of impressive old timers...Dick Griffith. I think I may have mentioned him before here somewhere. He skiied across the Arctic and the Northwest passage, from Alaska's western coast to Hudson Bay. Most of his trips occurring after the age of 65. A few years ago he completed the same wilderness race I did this past year at the age of 81, in 6 days. He's 87 now I believe and this past year he did yet another trip down the Grand Canyon. Very humble and inspiring individual. Check out this book for more-https://www.amazon.com/Canyons-Ice-Wild ... 1467509345

Age is but a number.
