I can't believe I never posted on this thread. I was 40 when it started and now I'm 58. It's amazing how this hobby has changed in the last 18 years.

I'm the old man in the group. I'm 65 and just started detecting a year and a half ago. It's great exercise but my legs get very tired the next day and I can barely walk.
