Default Average Age of Forum Users

The recent deaths of a few forum members and the accompanying pictures got me wondering about the average age of the forum's users. Anyone know? At 39, I'm thinking I'm on the low end?

So that makes me in my thirties right?

Just turned 63 in Sept. Although we recently lost 3 Forum Members, 2 of them left us much too soon. Redwing was 69 & Sunset Bob had just had his 62nd Birthday on 9/20. Too young! Dave35 was 87 & enjoyed many years on Locke Island.

Well being the Math Geek I am I found the average... in this thread to be 54.5 years old....

Thanks to guys like Pineneedles, Kamper, and Maxum of course I had to do a little bit of arithmetic just to get their ages... but hey that made it fun....

At the end of the day however every time I meet someone from the forum, I realize we are all the same.... we don't want to grow up!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm 69. Luckily I have good genes from my mother(she's 90). Luckily I don't have any health issues. Yes its taking me longer to do things and do feel aches now and then. Like the saying goes "The brain is willing but the body not so much".

Happy Thanksgiving

Great analogy Dave! Happy Thanksgiving to you...
And now for The Rest of the Story, behind the picture.
When Dad was drafted into the Army, by that time he and Mom already had 7 children, they married young, by the way. So, the Army not wanting to put Dad in harms way, offered him a deployment to work on the Pan American highway project. He could have been differed, but wanted to serve, so we lived in Caracas Venezuela for two years.
So again, this picture of me was taken in 1946, back before Antiques. I must have been given a straw broom and delegated to clean up duty, probably for being a bratt, notice the Two Ts…


Now, back to the regularly scheduled thread.
I will Go Away now

Almost 72, enough to bring up the average, but younger than some the old fossils lurking around here. But the kids here (y'know, like still in their 60s) likely wonder how I dare call some others "old fossils."
