    It all depends on your battery. No way of telling how much of a charge it got left. Sometimes they run down and charge right up again.

    30 is very young. What problems are you having?

    me, I have been in the bonus years for over 20 years. The mileage was very rough so the ole body tries to reject everything I do but I make my adjustments as to how I am able to do things and go from there. All I have to do is to go to the VA hospital and I am reminded how good I really have it. It can always be worse. so these days I am a little more picky where I hunt and when. the how long is in hunt a while, rest a bit and do it all over again, no big deal. But I can see doing less and less in the future unless I can get a full body replacement LOL

    Oh yes, I expect issues at my age. But you need to pay attention if you're having issues at 30.

    One thing about my household being 225 years of experience....

    There were 13 of us cousins, Mom's side. There's the 3 of us up the holler now, one cousin at the coast and the others are gone. There's a couple we have no idea about, off to their own life many years ago.

    Probably 75% of my friends from my 20's are gone. So, we get into our occasional visits and too much of the conversation is about who's still with us.

    Aging sucks for that reason, our friends who have passed.

    I've got plenty of good years left, but all my friends are fat and out of shape. They spend all their time droning on about what their kid or grandkid did this week and reminiscing about the good old days. So there's nobody left to run with anymore...


    Everybody wants to know where Jimmy has gone
    He left town, I doubt if he's coming back home

    Well Tony got a job, three kids and a lovely wife
    Working at the commerce bank for the rest of his life

    [Chorus]
    Nobody left to run with anymore
    Nobody left to do the crazy things we used to do before
    Nobody left to run with anymore

    I'm gonna hit the road, adios my friend
    Go someplace and start all over again

    Don't know where I'm going, like a gypsy out on the road
    I'll go someplace and join a traveling show

    [Chorus]
    Nobody left to run with anymore
    Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
    Nobody left to run with anymore

    Nobody left to run with anymore
    Nobody left to run with anymore


    I think Jimmy must have had the right idea
    Packed his stuff and he got right out of here

    I don't know where he's at but I'm sure that he's ok
    Now I realize what Jimmy was trying to say

    [Chorus]
    Nobody left to run with anymore
    Nobody wants to do the crazy things we used to do before
    Nobody left to run with anymore

    Nobody left to run with anymore
    Nobody left to run with anymore

    I used to have that problem until i met new friends on internet and facebook. Now Im the old out of shape guy that cant or wont do crazt stuff. I always wanted to hike the Appalacian Trail but now it may be too late. My advice find new friends and do it before its too late

    Years Left? Heck, I'm already 168! Well that's about how old I feel anyway.
    See that little robot on the left? That's me when I get the full body replacement!

    Every year I can get underwater is a good year. Looks like it will be a good year this year. Hoping for many more.

    People ask me how old I am & I tell them. I'm 18 in my brain, 64 in my body, and 150 in my knees......... I've already lived over twice my expected lifespan. According to the docs, friends & family they never expected me to live past 30 with all the crazy stuff I did and the things that happened. So as far as it goes, I figure I'm in the part where each day is gravy!
    I know it's here, just need a bigger coil!

    I think I know what my last words will be....
    "Hold my beer and watch this!"
