Dr. Flatfish, You go guy. Do it all, and enjoy every minute of it. At 70, I was paddling for hours each day, and, camping out wherever the PACK group ended up. The youngsters in the group couldn't keep up with me. I enjoyed primitively camping for days at a time, with my kayak pulled up onto a nearby bank.
About twice a month, I spent a week on an Island in the Yucatan. Fished all day for bones, permit, tarpon, and snook. Evening found me in a kayak cruising the shoreline of the Caribbean looking for more bonefish.
This went on from the time I retired in 2003 until a year ago when I ran into some physical difficulties. At age, nearly 80, I am forced to take things a little easier, a little slower, and, perhaps a little wiser. The mind has grown younger, but, the abuse I've put my body through has finally taken it's toll on my physical stamina. And, I have absolutely no regrets........,other than that I never found the time to do the Devils River.
