Just out of curiousity, how old are you, if you don't take offense???
The only reason I ask is because my Dad is 67, going on 49 years in the trade, and "seems" to be in fairly good shape considering the amount of abuse he's voluntarily subjected himself to. As a matter of fact, I'd bet good money that he's still out work the vast majority of 25 YO's at this point of his life, well at least for the first 5-6 hours..........
He's never had a surgery to this point in his life, and I don't forsee a surgery for him in the near future at least. And it's not because he's a safe operator by any means, quite the opposite actually..............
