Good evening, Lonetrail,
You were close to the right age. I'm almost 21 ... for the third time. When I reached 21 the first time I asked myself if I really wanted to grow up. The answer was "No!", so I just reset the clock and started over. The same thing happened the second time, and I am beginning to see that answer again as I push the third time around.
Do you want to know what really ticks me off about young people these days? I'm not one of them.

Dam it Steel Eye I thought you were in your twenties when I read your posting
Good evening, all you fellow NW rain-lovers,
I started tromping parts of the old Oregon Skyline Trail, that eventually
became the PCT, back in the mid '60s. I can testify that the hills were no
steeper then than they are now. They only seem steeper to me now because it
takes longer to go up. I agree with Pat McManus about why: The hole in the
ozone layer is letting in too much gravity. My wife has another theory
about why I've slowed down, but its just too ridiculous to discuss.
I wish I would have thru-hiked then. Not because the trail was then really
a trail, but because Steel-Eye was then really Steel-Eye.
