Re: Upcoming surgery will cramp my style

I did many of the 14ers in Colorado - but can't blame that on the shoulder.
Ah you quite skiing early. I was an instructor until probably late 50s. And quite only because I moved to Florida for a job and that is where I bought SoulMates.
As for the climbing - high altitude climbing is not for physically unfit and after my last knee surgery I just could not get the legs in climbing condition needed to get take the punishment.
By the way I am 70 now and probably in better shape than most in their late 50s or early 60s.
Good luck with the surgery and it will be ok -- just do not get impatient - it will get better -- remember I lived on a boat after my last shoulder surgery last year in Tunisia. If a whooose like me can do it at 69 you young whipper snapper can do it.
