Yeah Buddy! I’m only 53, but I’ve spent the last 15 years either behind a windshield or a desk – sitting on my arse. I also have an arthritic right knee that two orthopedic surgeons have described as “torn-up” or “destroyed”, making it difficult to do a lot of walking and its very easy to injure. Net result: I’m about 40-50lbs overweight and my endurance & balance are poor.

The combination has really sapped my motivation, but the socio-economic signs that I’m seeing is helping to change that! I also have a 14-yo son and we’re learning Bushcrafting skills together- Its seemed to help the Bielski brothers and their partisan group in WW2.
