    I do walking trails during the day. I do not venture out after dark anymore because i live alone and no one to go with me. I do try to keep active though and the great outdoors is the best place for it. I love nature.

  22. Nancy A. Kapellensays:

    The best way to stay in shape both mentally and physically is to get outdoors! I and a group of friends support each other in everything we do. The group comes up with new adventures all the time. Our most recent adventure experience was in an orienteering event during winter/February, and it was a blast. You are never too old to try something new.

    Hiking and Kayaking in the great outdoors ads photo opportunities of nature in its natural habitat. Being 79 it also keeps you feeling younger in spirit and body. Being fit and trim keeps you going.

  51. Carolann McLaughlinsays:

    We purchased a campsite in a gated family campground and there are a lot of trails to venture on, but we haven’t been able to try them out with the COVID situation. Plan to hit the trails this summer. Have been camping almost all of my life and love it although because of age becoming more and more impossible is the reason I have switched to glamping, but still have my tents and love it.

  52. Beauxsays:

    Good luck to all!
