Quote:102-year-old Dorothy Custer is no stranger to extreme sports. Or TV cameras. Last year, she zip-lined over the Snake River Canyon to celebrate her 101st birthday

She said that it was over too quick. chuckle.gif

Love it. People like that just don't quit living hi5.gif My Mother mountain biked from Lhasa to Kathmandu when she was 68, now she's 75 and thinking about a trek in Nepal this fall. When she was 63 she peaked Kala Patthar, at 65 she climbed the Khumbu Glacier to Everest base Camp. She hasn't got time to get old cheers.gif

I hope I will look that happy too!

Was that trip on her bucket list, Shadow?

My mother has such a horrible, hard life...growing up a farm girl in Europe she was expected to grow up at age of 5 yrs, then during war was starving in a Russian concentration camp, then rescued by Red Cross and travelled through countries ending up in Kenya, then she was ordered as a servant girl for a large family in Winnipeg, Manitoba...then having four children before the age of 25 and remaining in an unhappy marriage....she never wanted to travel again, or do much of anything really. sad2.gif

hug.gif hug.gif Sometimes doing nothing is all you want because what you've done is to survive. And that's okay too. "ordered as a servant girl" sad2.gif like a microwave or something.

Yeah Mom never really got to travel, she had a nasty marriage too, survived only because she packed her kids and left. Otherwise I'd be visiting her grave the last 40 years. So yes, Nepal and Tibet have been at the top of her to-do list all her life.

All that really matters is our good health because without that we have nothing...

For some living life to the fullest means traveling around the world and for others it's not going anywhere. To each their own. cheers.gif

No I don't think belly dancing, US chuckle.gif Although it's not out of the question.

I'm glad for her. Yes, Tibet has always intrigued me, for some unknown reason.

Yeah what would life be like if everyone liked the same things?

The Inner Light

"Without going out of my door
I can know all things on earth
Without looking out of my window
I could know the ways of heaven
The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows
Without going out of your door
You can know all things on earth
With out looking out of your window
You can know the ways of heaven
The farther one travels
The less one knows
The less one really knows
Arrive without traveling
See all without looking
Do all without doing"

If everyone wanted to travel, then I'd be hard pressed getting a good hotel room. chuckle.gif
