It wears me out for sure, but

It wears me out for sure, but in a good way.  I love to get out and hunt.  The only thing better than going hunting, is going hunting with my kids.  We're making memories while we can.

That is why I retired early, so that I could enjoy what I enjoy doing.

LOL..I retired at 55 too, but i'm 71 now. 55 would be nice again. I was pretty frisky then.

Now it's a struggle to climb mountains I used to sprint up. Not ready to give up yet. I'll probably never give up, but just die somewhere on the mountain doing what I love most. Not a bad way to go.
