I have a Star Wars #1 from 1977.  Collected from 80 to 84.  Bought that for $5.  Nice appreciation.   I am also a coaster guy but just in the last few years, they have begun to make me sick.  This getting to your 50's age sucks.

Coasters have started to make me sick too. I finally was able to make it to Cedar Point a few years ago and was only able to ride 7 or 8 before I gave up. I should have given up after 3 or 4, but we only had 1 day.

Still love my weightlifting. I'm not putting up numbers like I did when I was younger and non-organic, but I'm doing okay. I've also gotten back into Muay Thai. That is without a doubt the best self defense in case of a fight.

I also love to travel. This summer we visited Mount Rushmore and Yellowstone National Park.

I did the same trip last summer.  Flew into Denver, went up to the Badlands, Rushmore, and all the stuff in the Dakotas, drove across to Montana and hit Custer's Last Stand, on to Wyoming and Yellowstone and the Grand Tetons, and then back to Denver to explore the city and do the Mile High Stadium tour.

That's crazy. Almost exactly the same trip. Flying into Denver and everything. We added Salt Lake City on the backside of the trip.

South Dakota and Wyoming are amazingly beautiful.

There's really no other practical way to do it other than to fly into Denver. There's like a small Jackson Hole airport or something but prices and flight availability make it a very unattractive option. I didn't mind as I wanted to explore that city anyway since I'm a Broncos fan. My only regret is that I couldn't hit Glacier too, but that was way too far north in Montana. In Wyoming we made our base in Cody and took in a rodeo and the fantastic Buffalo Bill Museum. It was one of my favorite vacations. Cranking it to 120 for a few spurts here and there on the wide open roads in Montana with barely another car in sight was fun too. I'd be happy to share my itinerary with anyone interested. I mapped out everything 4 months in advance and it all worked out great, even when fires by one of the Yellowstone entrances caused our hotel to be evacuated a day before we were supposed to check in and we had to scramble to make other arrangements.

I would be interested in seeing your itinerary.

We visited Cody as well, but stayed a little closer to Yellowstone in Wapiti, Wyoming. We drove by that museum about 20 times. I wanted to check it out, but the family voted for something else.

If anyone is interested, here is a travel blog that my wife an I started a few years ago to chronicle our travels. Feel free to check it out.

I'm learning how to jump over cars. Once I've mastered that, I'm gonna learn how to dodge bullets

I miss powerlifting ALOT. Can't do it anymore with an artificial shoulder. I'm not even aloud to step inside a gym anymore per my surgeon.

I'd love for either of you to explain why. I don't know anything about the base of this type of self defense really so serious question. Would love to know the advantages over other self defense or fighting disciplines.

Nobody is going to fight BT. He's a Greek and he's about 71 years old I think (maybe even older). Only other geriatric Greeks may take him on if the last shot of Ouzo is at stake.

My kids are taking karate and I'd eventually would want them to transition to May Thai and some sort of grappling. Karate and Taekwondo are too formulaic. I've seen the instructor go through steps A. B, C, and D. Going through these steps depend on the attacker staying still. May Thai is straightforward and teaches dangerous strikes. It combines Boxing with kicks, knees, and elbows. I've seen many, many fights in my time. Most of them end with two people clinching each other with no one gaining an advantage. Muay Thai counters that with short elbows, knees, and headbutts. 
Any form of grappling is always good. Again, most fight end up on the ground or in close quarters. Grappling teaches throws and other takedowns.

I enjoy silent films. I still enjoy going to thrift stores to see if there's anything old, wacky, and valuable, but that well is pretty much dried up. Too many people with smartphones working there who think the highest price on eBay is fair value.

Even though I"ve slowed down, still collect old boxing cards from the 1920's through the 50's.
