User's Ages.

It's been quite a while since there's been a poll on the ages of members and trailer users. I suspect the average age and gone down since the last one. So please participate, I think it will be interesting.

Yay! So far I classify as the young fella here. No doubt that will change soon though.

(I added a descriptor to the one category, just to clarify things )

What was the average age at the last one, when was it done and how many participated.


And, BTW: Of what use is this information?


Long ago, Vinnie Delpino, Doogie Howsers sidekick, was wanting to ask Doogie's mother Katherine for a date, and was questioned about the 20 something year age difference between them. He replied "All adults are the same age".....

There are many benefits of gathering this information. Understanding the demographics of the membership, to know where you rank in the age spread, general interest, having fun.....

Oh yeah, and if the numbers in the older than dirt category are high, you know there might be a flood of used FGRV's on the market sometime in the near(er) future.

If you happen to be, say, 30 years old, which button should you press?

View Poll Results: As a user what's your approximate age.

Approximate? - How much am I allowed to fudge it?

Also, I think there are quite a few in the 70+ category, but are there any 80+. The older I get the more curious I get about them.

Okay we're older than dirt but remember most of the food you eat grows in dirt or eats stuff that grows in dirt. Soon we'll really be part of the dirt.

Poll does not show on my iPad but I am in the older than dirt category. When I turned 70 my mom was 100 so I figured that at that time I still had 30 years to go. Take something to keep the arthritis at bay and I am still ready to go. Forget it and I can go try to find wherever I left my walking stick. Ha!

Well, I'm glad to see there are a couple of other "Older than Dirts" in the group!

I could claim to be 39 and holding... but the gray hair says otherwise.

Some like to suggest that we get out, travel and make memories, and I cannot agree more. Making them is not the problem - keeping them may start getting harder. As Homer (Homer Simpson, that is) would say: "If I make a new memory, I have to forget an old one!"
