Re: health after retirement


My paddling partner lives up there and does most of the planning.* Basically, if the weather is good, we'll go out for three days/two nights and camp riverside.* If the weather is questionable, we'll do day trips based out of his house.* (The ladies will be at a two day quilt show.)

If we're out the three days, it'll probably be the Wolf River, which we've done stretches of before.

Wolf River
Offers variety, with relatively calm upper stretches to exciting whitewater below Lily. The stretch below Lily is recommended for experienced paddlers and is also popular for whitewater rafting. Area outfitters provide canoe and raft rentals. Access is available at road crossings with possible take-out near Markton and Hwy M before entering the Menominee Indian Reservation. Note: Regulations on paddling beyond Markton should be checked locally.

If we're doing day trips, the Oconto, Peshtigo and several flowages are nearby. We'll kayak if day tripping and take the canoe if camping.

I wish my paddling buddy would get himself ER'd!* It would be great to have the time to head up to the BWCAW or Quetico at this time of year!* *

Re: health after retirement

I have been retired unemployed now for 5 years and have been going to the health club for 20 years now. So, I was in pretty good health when working and not.

But the one thing I do notice, is that I used to get 2 colds a year, Now it seems like I get 1 cold every 2 years. Don't have to hang around all those folks with small children anymore!
