I chose 30-40 because I'm 35, however he's almost 43 and I must admit I have more than a few grey hairs apprearing already. Kids are 10 and 12 pretty much, but the camper we brought is the one that we'll take into retirement :)

That's what I thought...3 campers back  lol

I'm only 38. But got greys like I'm 48  ???, my body feels like I'm 68  ???, my maturity level would be 28 (tops)  ;D... yet in my mind I like to think I'm only 20 still   :cheers: LOL

I'm with you Steven!

I am 36 and the greys started appearing a couple of years ago so feeling ripped off. That been said the wife is younger  ;D and as I always say; boys don't grow up, we just get better toys  :cup:

I'm a little over 50, the Princess a little under.
I describe myself as Mature Blonde.  Old enough to know better young enough not to care and smart enough not to get caught.

We get all age groups here at Kilcowera Station.  I know many of them use this forum too.  Probably the 50 to 65 year age bracket would be the largest group though.  Starting to get more young families through.  Cheers

As we get Older we get more experience in life . Our brain is fed more & more information so it increases in size . Sadly your head remains the same size .
As such the grey matter is under pressure from your HUGE BRAIN  so it is forced out through your skull replacing your hair . Grey Hair = Huge Brain


or its like the filing cabinet thing  ,  stuff things in the front & it falls out the back  .
Ummmmmmmm                                :cheers:

I don't think it has anything to do with age, but I can't remember whether I answered the poll in the first place! Consequently, I don't know if I am one of the two OBE's. I was 81 yesterday. Could the pollmaster please let me know whether I responded? Thank you. I read the unread posts every morning and am sure to learn something every day. Cheers

If you have voted your choice should be in bold text compared to all the other categories. You can also edit your choice as we all seem to gain a bit each year  ;D

Just updated - gee, I only get to do that once more.


"Distinguished"  though is doubtful, "Gentleman" is highly improbable.

I just updated my vote, to the grey nomad group. I might start reverse grey haired nomading and go south for summer. ;D

I'm 60 but I'm definitely not an FGN (Freaking, or something similar, grey nomad) so I refuse to select a box ;D No, No, No, I'll quietly sob myself to sleep tonight because of your definition of my age group.

Definitely me too.
