Age 70 retired, Grew up on a mountain ranch, learned to operate anything with wheels or tracks, learned woodworking, construction, explosives, welding, firearms, sewing, designing, gardening, art, music, and electronics. Became a Broadcast Engineer (that knowledge now antique) and semi-pro guitarist for concert and studio. I became a widow in my early 20's and went into the construction trades for higher pay and insurance. I built my own log cabin including falling, skidding, and sawing my own lumber, tanned hides, made guns, and knives, and sewed most of my own clothes. I lived off the grid for several years before finally moving to the outskirts of a city. I was also an avid windsurfer in those days. I even made a few stringed musical instruments and furniture.

Today I rarely go into my studio/shop. I get up early and workout first thing, then practice guitar and then play on the internet until my walking time. I spend way too much time in doctors' offices, but overworking my body in my youth, isn't without consequence. I retired from the freight delivery business and enjoyed numerous hobbies until I hit 70 and now easier to talk about it than do it.

Welcome to buzz, come to chat rooms and retell some of your adventures, they would be interesting to hear. Sounds like me, New knees, torn rotator cuffs, pins, plates and terrible hearing.
