    Such a feat at the age of 84 ? I am stunned by the gentleman's vigor, zest, and spirit and am ashamed that I do so little at 65. Rest In Peace, Mr. Anthony Smith. My goal is to grow up and be like U !

    What a guy, what a life!

    Reminds me of Ted Simon who rode an old Brit motorcycle around the world for four years when he was 40, then did the same trip again at age 70. His books are classics for all bikers. He has lived for years on his homestead in Covelo CA.
