I love all of your posts Creek, thanks for sharing.  The trip to Portugal was epic. 
I think your switch to vegan may be the fountain of youth.
If anyone is interested in the topic with respect to athleticism, the documentary film "The Game Changers" is inspiring:

Here is some inspiration for those that want to SUP surf after 80 (Mickey Munoz 82):

SoCo.... not if we are stoked about tomorrow!

sflinux thanks, much appreciated!
I actually never went vegan... it was "Primal" which is similar in many ways, but there is still meat and chicken included only if grass fed or free range with no additives.

The trailer for Vegan looks interesting.

I am not eating much meat these days, mainly because I don't do much cooking in Florida, mostly salad type stuff but I do eat a lot of eggs.

Finally.... I am back in weight loss mentality.
It's hard to break out of the comfort food rut and lock into weight loss eating.... but I am THERE!  ;D
Down 5 lbs in the past week.... down 20 lbs since a  Sunova Demo road trip got me on a bad path in mid winter.
I am very happy where my head is now and weight is shedding on healthy eating.

Just finished up 3 awesome days of waves in SoFlo.... yewwwwww!
Surfed today with my new buddy Jimmy McK, who emailed me after lurking on the Zone.... we shared a fun session!

I was there at Dog Patch went they filmed that. I was talking to Mickey and asked him if he was going out? He said he was waiting for Collin, they were going to film them surfing together. Both of them are the nicest guys to hang and chat with. Mickey is always R&D'g something.
It's not overhead to me!

There sure as hell better be!  70 is young!  My dadís family often makes it past 100.  Had my dad not fallen and broken his hip a couple of months before 95 he may have made it.  But it seems like the 90s suck.  He was crippled and had dementia.  So I am making it my lifeís mission to keep it going after 90! Hereís a man and woman who won a track race at 100 and 102!

Hi,
Ilmsup, sorry to hear about your dad's fall.
A new study found an increased risk of dementia (>40-50% increase) by eating processed meats (i.e. bacon).
Article:

Best of luck to joining the 100 club.

The people bringing up the rear in that video run like I do. No great loss, I never liked running anyway. I got stuck working as Shore Patrol in the navy once, and the only training I had was a crusty bosun's mate telling me "face a gun and run from a knife". I figured I would be screwed either way.

Thanks SFLNUX.  I think the stress of caring for my mom for 15 years may have contributed.  She had a severe stroke at 75 and lived another 15 years in a nursing home.  It really gives you a sense of urgency to make the most of your good health after that.

Mickey is always fun to talk to. Hell of a good mind as well as a charger in the surf. The year that the BOP was at Salt Creek Micky was a ref, wearing the black and white striped shirt. The surf was really nice, breaking top to bottom and pitching out as much of a barrel as I've seen in SoCal. He was the only person that got to surf, the buggah. Somewhere I have a picture of Chuck, Mickey and Diane at the Riviera after party. Mickey's outfit was hilarious.

Creek,

You likely survived the "pole vault" because of your SUP fitness.  Use it or lose it.  The variance in fitness and health for senior citizens is huge.

Dean Ornish offers a wellness path and easy read, dealing with the big three:  diet, exercise and stress.

"UnDo It! with Anne Ornish" New York: Ballantine Books, 2019. ISBN 9780525479970

Those few who manage to adapt, often shock their physicians.

Yeah Bille K, I have built up a tolerance for beatings.
Probably just a lifetime of accepting them and staying relaxed as the hammer comes down.

That and the fact that I never let life get in the way of surfing, so I have maintained a target fitness and mental focus on maximizing every surf session.
