My tap dance teacher just turned 93!! She can out-dance and out-think all of us put together. She's mean as a snake...I think that's the secret.

To me it is health, not my age that will determine when to stop. As long as I am at least reasonably healthy, I will continue to enjoy my motorhome. The trips may be shorter in distance, but to me it has never been all about the destination, more about the journey.

That is not right!

The original owner of my rig was 84 when she traded it for a new View.

Our government said that at age 60, I was too old to continue driving my 747-400. Wingspan 100'+, weighing more than 700,000 pounds. With 300+ people in the back. 37 years, never scratched paint, no violations, no incidents, no accidents, nothing.

I am now driving a Dutch Star, at 'only' 32,000 pounds and 63+ feet with the towed.

I intend to not allow the government to take this pleasure away.

You go for it.

At 70 we are taking our ATVs to Dunefest in Oregon with our 42' RV, then on to THE RBICON TRAIL with our Jeep and two nights sleeping in the jeep on the trail. Not ready to slow down yet.

70 isn't old and unless there something obvious goin on with you driving should be no problem......ask a trusted friend or family friend from time to time if they have any concerns about your driving. Its difficult to identify when driving skills begin to diminish and nobody wants to be the person who causes an accident because of diminishing driving skills....the consequences are often life changing. We live in an area where lots of retired folks live and about once a week we read about an elder who has had a major accident caused by.....diminished driving skills......so ask a son/daughter, friend to assess your driving from time to time.......
