Average age of members?

MMario's picture

For a number of reasons I got to thinking about ages today - and I've been trying to remember whether or not anyone has done the "How old are you?" bit here at MWK.

I know we've got a wide range of ages - from teenagers on up to ??? but just how old? And where do the bulk of the guys who join here fit>

For myself - I'm about as close to mid-50's as one can get.....six months to go until I hit a double nickel.

tho' maybe this would be better done as a poll as some people may not want to say...

So far I'm the youngest to have posted on this one. 21 since this past January. But I tend to get along really well with older people... I tire of my peers sometimes.

You realize when I first read your comment my mind did not register the "well" in the statement. I almost got a heart palpitation. ;-)

61 here. But that does not compute; last I recall, my grandparents were in their sixties!

49 going on 14 - I can't seem to escape puberty. I'll hit the big 50 in September. When I check new member profiles it seems that most of them are 40ish.

It looks like I take the prize for the oldest. I am 75 and still going strong. My partner and I (he's a youngster...60) travel a lot and I keep busy volunteering. I started knitting in the 3rd grade, so I guess I have been knitting for 69 years...WOW !!

I'm 35. So far most of us seem to be the same age, namely closer to 30 than to 25 :)

On April 21st I will

On April 21st I will celebrate the 32nd anniversary of my 21st birthday. I always think about it that way. Somehow it makes being 50-something not seem so old. I am planning to complete my first Half Ironman in Sept. of this year, also!

I turned 37 yesterday, but

I turned 37 yesterday, but my daughter (who turns 3 in two weeks) keeps saying that I turned 7. I wouldn't necessarily mind being a little younger, but that's probably a bit much.
