    I walked down the hill from the back of my house to check how the 13" or rain we had the other day may have eroded the banks of the creek and the damnest thing has happened. The hill is steeper than it was last year. Coming back up, I was a little winded and my calves and hips a little sore. We don't have earthquakes, and I can't think of anything else to explain it.

    I hear ruck marches help. :p

    Though, it's beyond my recent experience. The ruck marches, I mean.

    Having more birthdays is fun, isn't it?

    At this point, having birthdays is still a good thing.

    The only marching I do any more is marching my my old butt down about a 1/4 mile to get the paper and back in the afternoon to get the mail. Everywhere else I drive like a civilized human being. We can call that a truck march. I didn't like marching when I was young either, that is why I joined the Navy. (that and I didn't like the idea of getting shot at; something I still haven't developed a taste for)

    Did your driveway wash out? You said it was close to over at the other forum.

    It's those land grabbing lefties! They chip away at your land an inch at a time when you're not paying attention. Before you know it, you'll be forced to live on rented property owned by our socialist overlords, where you'll be made to recycle cow farts, dismantle all petroleum or atomic based machinery with wood and stone tools, and raise acres of cotton candy to feed the unicorns!

    It sounds like you've got a bunch NY, Mass., Md., and Californians moving in to the area and bringing in the same crap they left to escape.

    Don't let it happen! Stay vigilant!

    well, I have the opposite problem, someone keeps adding more land on my lawn every year, because each summer it takes me longer to mow my grass then it did last year.

    thinking about getting one of those trail cam do-dads, and try to catch the person(s) doing that.

    Some folks will always need rain and others get too much. If the woods are on fire, I'd appreciate rain. If my house is flooding, not so much. Having had both, it's just life. Thankful to still be around to see what happens next.

    It's gravity. The longer it has been around, the stronger it gets. Not only will you work harder to get up those hills, but you can find yourself going DOWN them when you did not expect to. Things like firewood, splitting mauls and 6 point bucks a half mile from the truck get heavier.

    Lately I find that the increased gravity also affects my eyelids. Getting harder and harder to keep them open all day.

    I think it's mass more than gravity. I see little kids bouncing around like gazelles and wonder why I don't have that much energy.
    Then I think they only when 40 lbs, I go nearly 6 times thzt, it's no wonder I only have 15% their endurance!

    The older we get the more critical exercise becomes.
    Early in the "outbreak" I stayed at home all the time except to buy food IAW host nation instructions.

    After doing this for 6 weeks I felt physically extremely degraded especially in my ability to walk any distance or hill with any kind of alacrity.

    Have since fixed it.
    I have a SO living with me now, so I cannot take off on individual Gym sessions the way I used to (plus i hate exercising with a mask) but on ruckmarches she can accompany me with a walk.

    So thats what I do a lot of.
    Yesterday climbed/marched a serious hill to see a touristy waterfall.
    Barely breathed heavy

    I thought I was being a wuss last week at work.
    No gas.
    As in no energy.

    But also..........maybe TMI..........no gas (other kind).

    Left my keys in my Jeep's ignition all shift. Never done that before. Forgot em on the console a couple days before. Just tired, all the time. A bit anxious.......got worse.
    Very slow, proly two week decline (maybe longer, but noticeable for sure something just "off").

    Mowed my yard last week, it's small. Did OK. But was extra lazy after.

    Well, now my vision is brighter. Like lightbulbs are on. I wake up and I'm not foggy, or lazy.

    Yup, Thursday I was sick and drove to the ER, got my appendix out.
    In at 11am and home before 6pm.
    And the docs on call were good ones (knew them from other).

    Now stuck at home doing nothing. Not too bad but one of the lapro holes/cuts is super ouchy. Coughing is not fun.

    I wrote it off as just getting old, being lazy.
    Turns out I had an infection (on top of being old and lazy).

    Infection is Nature's way of telling you to slow down.

    Take your time, and heal well brother. Anything that involves opening the abdomen, is a butch to deal with, while it's healing up. Mostly because, until you injure it, you never think about how much you really use those Core muscles.

    Just went through the same type of thing, the last couple months. 2 broken ribs, and a deep bruise, from when I laid down the VTX. Flask shaped pocket spittoon in my vest pocket, was right where I came diem, when I landed, and it, at the size of my hand, left a bruised area, roughly the size of a gallon jug.

    That was in July, and it didn't stop hurting, until late August.

    Glad you got that appendix out, before it got worse. Have a friend who had his burst, that spent more than a week in, andnlooksnoike henwas stabbed repeatedly, from them working on him.
