I used to enjoy running, but my knees and ankles started to protest too much.

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2014:  06:25:55


The latest trend is ultra cushioned shoes... I'm a big fan!

dat - Posted - 06/07/2014:  07:14:15


bout all I wear is redwings,  they sound fast, but don't try to run in 'em

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/07/2014:  13:14:03


What kind of shoes do you wear,Dean?

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2014:  13:20:40


I wear Hokas



hokaoneone.com

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/07/2014:  13:33:44


They look good- think I'll check'em out. Expensive?

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2014:  18:09:43


Yes, but sometimes you can get good deals at running warehouse

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/07/2014:  19:07:26


Ok,will do. Even the $160 that they list isn't outrageous.

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2014:  19:11:13


Stinson Tarmacs are my favorite. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/07/2014:  19:23:19


How long will a pair last you, with all the running you do?

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/07/2014:  19:35:50


In the last couple of weeks I've ordered 13 pairs of shoes. The last three haven't gotten here yet, but of the rest I'm definitely sending 7 back (one of those my foot started hurting before I even got it on!) And I'm still trying to decide about two.

I hate shoe shopping.

DeanT - Posted - 06/07/2014:  20:05:19


I got 6 months, and over 1200 miles on my last pair of Stinson Tarmacs. I make shoe shopping easy... when a pair of shoes works for me, I keep buying the same shoe. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/07/2014:  20:18:02


Wow- 1200 miles! They'll last me 10 years ,in that case. lol

DeanT - Posted - 06/08/2014:  00:14:26


Unless you start training for a marathonyes

OM45GE - Posted - 06/09/2014:  05:43:49


Cheaper than knee replacement. 

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2014:  06:02:17


in 1997, A doctor told me I was going to have my knees replaced by the time I was 50. Wrong.

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/09/2014:  06:31:15


My brother used to run 3 miles a day,but on the sidewalks and streets in his town. He's now got hip problems. I used to run some ,but I'd go to a high school track ,with the spongy surface. Played soccer every summer for years in my teens,,no problems from that,,running on grass.

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/09/2014:  07:21:32


I'm a little concerned I'm going to need a knee replacement. I've been having some pretty yucky pain in my one leg.

I need to find a new doctor, though, and I've been procrastinating about that.

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2014:  11:33:39


When my legs are cranky, I run on the fairways at the golf course across the street. 

dat - Posted - 06/09/2014:  14:22:29


My backbone stopped my running, I used to run in the spring and summer 3 to 5 miles, usually the 5 every other day and 3 almost every day, I ran so that I wouldn't be out of shape when we were loading up the decoys and humping the packs out in the fields goose hunting.  back surgery sure changes things

DeanT - Posted - 06/09/2014:  17:05:27


My plan B if I can't run anymore, is my bike. I might be 99 year old in a rest home riding on a rowing machine...

dat - Posted - 06/10/2014:  06:25:51


I'm not sure I want to be around at 99,   doesn't really matter the years, but I don't care to be around once my health is a burden on anybody, as long as I'm healthy I don't mind,  but then again, if my body is healthy and I loose my mind, then I won't care,

DeanT - Posted - 06/10/2014:  10:28:41


When my health goes to crap, just give me whiskey and cigarettes

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2014:  10:40:23


Breakfast of champions!

dat - Posted - 06/10/2014:  11:30:55


I used to say "nuthin better than watching the sun come up, watching ducks landin the decoys, while you have a mixed drink in your hand"    we would start on Jim beam and coke before sun up, turn the jug upside down for a good 8 count, then a 12 ounce coke and a little ice will fill a 44 ounce cup, starts the morning off with the hair of the dog

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2014:  11:42:15


The ducks probably felt safer.

DeanT - Posted - 06/10/2014:  13:54:17


I'd rather be tipping up at home away from the ticks and jiggers

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2014:  14:08:58


Definitely more comfortable than a duck blind on a cold fall morning in New England.

 funny thing, that was when we used to actually shoot more than our limit.   you can put 56 woodducks in a black trash bag, the limit is two a day

OM45GE - Posted - 06/10/2014:  16:27:40


Good point.

DeanT - Posted - 06/10/2014:  19:02:01


we used to get duck eggs on the farm. They nested all along the back pond

OM45GE - Posted - 06/11/2014:  02:50:13


Most of the places I used to duck hunt as a kid are surrounded by housing developments now.

DeanT - Posted - 06/11/2014:  06:00:20


same here. My old farm house is still there, but it's like a house in a neighborhood now

OM45GE - Posted - 06/11/2014:  06:14:50


It's hard to describe how build up this part of the country is. Within an hour or so of Boston, there are virtually no building sites. People are buying livable but small homes and tearing them down to put up bigger houses.



The last family produce farm in town closed last year after the patriarch died and the kids didn't want to farm. The surveyors have already been in there and soon the veggies will be just a memory.



 

dat - Posted - 06/11/2014:  06:37:57


most places we used to goose hunt are built up with houses and new towns,  most lakes where we duck hunted are full of houses around the lakes now

OM45GE - Posted - 06/11/2014:  06:54:38


To the best of my knowledge, there is no place in town where it's legal to hunt. They did a special, permit only, bow hunt to cull the deer a few years ago but that's it.

dat - Posted - 06/11/2014:  08:52:50


no hunting in town here either, and there are towns where there used to not be

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/11/2014:  10:15:51


Maybe I'm missing something here, but wouldn't hunting IN town be kinda dangerous?

DeanT - Posted - 06/11/2014:  10:55:02


Move to Kansas... I live in the biggest city in the state... drive 10 minutes in any direction and you are out in the middle of nowhere...

dat - Posted - 06/11/2014:  10:58:59


Used to be that way here, not many places anymore that aren't building new houses everywhere you look, we're even getting neighbors close to us now.  ( I can still pee off the porch though without having to wave at any neighbors though)

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/11/2014:  15:11:41


I live in the northern Great Plains ,but even here no one hunts in town. I guess you guys must mean on the edge of town

When I was growing up we could walk out the back door and bird hunt in the fields behind the house. That's all houses now. Five minutes away was a huge tract of fields we used to hunt pheasant in. That's a series of shopping plaza. There was a small pond a couple of miles away with a swampy brook feeding it. We used to hunt duck in there. Now it's completely built up with homes. You couldn't swing a cat let alone shoot a shotgun. All of this was in the town I grew up in.

DeanT - Posted - 06/11/2014:  16:36:37


Everyone from Kansas must be moving to where you all live...

OM45GE - Posted - 06/11/2014:  17:36:19


It's sure doing wonders for my home equity.

DeanT - Posted - 06/11/2014:  18:59:19


My house decreased in appraised value over the last 3 years

OM45GE - Posted - 06/12/2014:  06:30:46


We were both lucky and ambitious. The market was in a slump when we bought and the owner had let it run down so it didn't show well. We put a ton of hard work into it and the market roared back. We've got loads of equity. They only problem is that the only way to buy something else to live in and get the equity out would be to downsize or move somewhere else and I don't want to do either. 

chuckv97 - Posted - 06/12/2014:  08:03:41


What kind of house do you own Bill?

OM45GE - Posted - 06/12/2014:  08:52:00


I've got a ranch that was built in the 1950's. We moved from a big old Victorian and were planning to downsize but ended up going from about 3,600 square feet to 4,200. 



It's a great house that a developer built for himself but never moved into.  He over built it in every way imaginable. 

Mr. Quimby - Posted - 06/12/2014:  09:37:47


Just north of where I work there was a huge farm. I remember when I first moved out here in 1993 driving past it. A couple years later the owner died and the kids couldn't afford the taxes so they were trying to sell it, but no one wanted to buy it for development because there were no water/power lines near there. Finally the city of Rockville annexed the area, even though the property wasn't actually next to Rockville, and said they'd be willing to extend their utilities system out there. A developer bought it and the land is now packed with houses, apartments, condos, etc. There's supposed to be some laws in the county about how for every X number of high income housing you also have to have a certain percentage of lower income housing, but I can't afford to live there. (Of course some of that is because I have lots of animals, so I'm limited in what condo buildings I can buy in and I have a horse so I'm poor.)

There's was one last farm closer to where my ex-boyfriend lived, maybe five miles from here, but I think that finally got sold to developers last year and they're putting in houses, etc.

DeanT - Posted - 06/12/2014:  12:23:36


We are poor animal people too. Our house is only 834 sq/ft but that doesn't include the basement... not finished, but we don't care and practically live in our cave. We paid the house off in 4 years, and I was able to retire early. We are enjoying life more than money and fancy stuff could ever provide.
