I'm sixty-five years old and live in the Maine woods. I've thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. Nature is my gym. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures" . I have practiced Transcendental Meditation for an hour daily for the past 45 years.
