Too old to backpack? I think NOT!
18 months ago we set out on a backpack trip at the ages of 51 and 68. Too old to backpack? I think NOT! We started on a smaller scale compared to the 20 somethings traveling the world. Maybe we would need to go slower but it wasn't a race. We wanted to take in every sight,sound, smell and feeling this trip would offer. We still work and have a budget but it can be done. We bought well fitted backpacks.This was our main expense. We worked out at a local gym carrying the packs. I weighted mine so I could get used to the feel of the weight. There were plenty of skeptics but we knew we could do this! We are off to see the world! Well, as much as we could see in a month.
