Thumbs up oldest person

Thought this might be fun. What is the age of the oldest person you ride with? For me it's a gentleman named Earl and he is 86 years young. Believe me on some of these 6-8hour trail rides when my butt is starting to protest, I do not dare say a word with Earl there!

Interesting topic. I think the oldest people at my barn are in their mid to late fifties, so not too old.

Wow, Earl must be really in shape to still be riding!!

Earl's my hero! He's not very tall, maybe 5' 3", and he is having both knees replaced next month, and his fingers are twisting with artheritis. But his attitude on life is so positive and joyful you just feel better for knowing him. Never complains, amazing person.

Aww, that is great. I love people like that. They are kindred spirits.
