Reinhold, your old 65-85 lb. pack weight would put you in good company with
Cheryl Strayed!

One of the best moments of my Mt. Whitney hike this year was when I
happened to see and meet Bob Rockwell on the trail. At age 78 (if I recall
correctly), he has summited Whitney 170 times (or at least that was the
total as of August 7 when I saw him). He has been hiking since before I was
born. His example is very inspiring to me, as are all of you who are still
out there hiking at age 70+.
