"....The minority are the hikers between 30 and 45
years old, because they're usually busy with their
careers and raising families."

It seemed that the above was true more on the
AT.....then, on the PCT, suddenly there were lots of
thirty-somethings on the trail.  A more serious lot? 
AT graduates growing older and moving onward?  Hmmmm.

Bald Eagle and I will be 35-36 on the CDT.  Our
buddies we hope will join us will be 39 and 52.  We're
all hopelessly ruined by thru-hiking....all of us quit
perfectly good jobs and abandon comfortable abodes to
be homeless, perpeturally tired and filthy.  In one
world, we aren't happy.  In the other, we are.....

Although the time raising a family is one activity
that can't be put off too long.
