Nearly all of us get worse with wear (aging), but holy cow.

Howdy @kdog!

Aging is a gift. It may have some ugly wrapping but consider the alternative.

I rather walk this earthly plain as an ugly, fat, bald headed old lady, that enjoys the wonders and the beauty this planet provides, than to pass from here early as beautiful corpse. 

I don't care how skilled the mortician is, the only thing normal about a dead body is death itself. So, if I can help make my time here more enjoyable by being more functional, health walks are a small price to pay.

I don't usually make New Year's resolutions, but I made one this year. I promised myself to find at least one thing everyday, that made me smile, and that I found pleasant. 

Walking has made that an easy promise to keep, as it helps me put the nonsense on the back burner, and enjoy the simple and natural beauty that surrounds me. 

I will find it more challenging come summer, for the heat will be my nemesis. I actually do better in the cold. Though I prefer to do away with extremes on either side.  minusculebiggrin

So well said old girl  minusculebeercheers .  However there is one thing I hate (one of many) about getting old is what I have to look at in the mirror first thing in the morning, that is one horror show I could well do without

You can do it now if you want. Go hiking, even if it is not warm at all. It is a matter of clothing. I am in trouble during summers, because the heat and humidity takes the pleasure away from my long walks, but i have to walk anyway. From point A to point B with a purpose. Like a grocery store visit or seeing a friend. Just leaving home, walking just to return home... no. No.

It is ALWAYS possible to add more clothing. But during summers, if i walk naked... uh... bad idea. Not a pretty sight and an overall lousy idea. But tempting, due to heat. Heat belongs to a sauna, nowhere else. Okay there is always Venus. Venus can keep it's heat.

The one with Kathy Griffin was difficult to look at as well.

Something is organically wrong with these individuals.

When walking in the cold it is breathing the cold air that gets me after a while. I am warm enough and can get too warm if over dressed. I used to skate with no more outerwear on than a sweater, and was always too warm, but I was quickly piling on the jackets and coats after a time or two about the lake.

You are right. You can't take off enough clothes to bet the heat. In fact sometimes the more clothes you have off the hotter it is. I have given it a go or two when it was hot but still cool enough during the day that the skeeter were not out in force, but as @Wallfire said, walking naked in the summer is not a good idea at all. Especially out here in the woods. minusculebiggrin

Im a winter person, I love the cold, its -20c here and I have just come back from a 3k walk. But I have noticed since I got sick I cant handle the cold so well. Because I have low salt in my body I sweat a lot its not nice, but summer has its beauty, the lakes and forests

When I was younger, we had a saying - "live fast, die young, leave a good looking corpse". I did it wrong, and got stuck here on this miserable rockball.

“The nature of psychological compulsion is such that those who act under constraint remain under the impression that they are acting on their own initiative. The victim of mind-manipulation does not know that he is a victim. To him the walls of his prison are invisible, and he believes himself to be free. That he is not free is apparent only to other people.”
