    Has youth passed me by and have I missed my chance to explore?

    Anyone in the Suffolk area have room for a fairly fit 30 year old to do some exploring?

    Never! I turned 30 this year & feeling the strain but not letting it put me off exploring, think most of the more experienced members on here are even older than me :eek:

    I'm 46 next month. If you're think you're past it then maybe you are. Take up knitting instead.

    Ah that's OK then, I must admit I was eyeing up a pair of binoculars for a bit of twitching and looking at a few plans for a nice cardie but in light of this I might get out there and have a look around.

    Hows the best way to join up with someone/some people in the Suffolk area? best to do it through this new members forum or post elsewhere?

    Cheers!

    I can just about remember being 30 (I think!) Don't need a Zimmer frame yet, however a Stannah stair lift would be nice on some of the high buildings :D

    As the other replies say, you are no where near too old !! Wish I was that age :-))
    When you feel you can't do certain explores for any reason, adapt and change. I have lost my bottle
    for high climbs, and possibly where balance is needed but still do most others.
    Age has given me more confidence to deal with secca and feds, and I now look a bit more I am on legit business :-))))))
