||Dick is an MD and retired Cardiologist. After attending Aerospace Medical School (USAF), he served as the Flight Surgeon for a F-105 squadron in the Vietnam War. A black belt in Judo with a 3 hour marathon to his credit, a nerve injury weakened his left leg and all was lost. That is, until he took a sea kayak lesson (about age 55) at Rutabaga. He can be found out on Lake Michigan 12 months a year and is presently an ACA L-4 open water sea kayak instructor (and teaches at his alma mater).
The population is getting older and the younger generation (because of their lack of physical activity) does not have the life expectancy of their grandparents. Active as our generation might be, with age comes aches and various illnesses. So, when is too old to be active? Is too old for professional boxing the same age as too old for kayaking? And really, most folks don't realize at what age they are living now. So let's discuss this deep issue and lace it with a bit of humor. What...you're too old to laugh?
