Smoke them while you have them.

Smoke em while you have em.
Boys I am out of the hospital on hospice. I had a ton of guns and related stuff. Just gave most away to relatives. Most of the guns hadn't seen daylight in years. My thing was always motorcycles, guns, airplanes and trail riding on our Polaris XP 900. I did a a lot but not near enough. Use them because you will lose them. Of course your soul comes first.

Trail riding is fun. What parts did you ride? Desert, woods,?? I have a side x side Arctic Cat,(Textron). Since moving to Wyoming I've started riding trails. Nothing crazy. Just throw in an ice chest, fishing poles and extra gas can. Share some pics if you have them.
Good luck to you!

We live at Cedar City Utah. The most of our rides have been about eighty mile radius of here multiple times. Either high mountains or high beautiful desert, We live near Cedar Breaks, Zion and Bryce Canyon National Parks. Here was my other love. Sold it a couple years ago. https://i.postimg.cc/KvBxW1Z6/1972-Citabria-GCBC.jpg

I couldn’t have put it better.

Prayers up that you still get plenty of time with your family and friends. Do as much fun stuff as you’re able - AND.....impart every bit of SENSE you can on all those young folks who seem to lack it.... :D :D

Use them because you will lose them.
Sometimes the having is enough. Sometimes going about acquiring it is enough. They are just different memories. Those possessions you've distributed should reinforce memories in your friends and family, even the simplest things. Years later I still get a pang when I pick up the ammo slip case a buddy gave me the year before he died. It has his handwritten load notes on it. Warm regards,

Karl

Tough to hear that. A friend went on hospice a few years ago as he was dieing of cancer. He blogged about it. Rocky Smith's Terminal Velocity blog on facebook. He fought all the way and helped several people get through rough patches while he was heading toward Terminal Velocity. He reached Critical Mass in 2014, but he never quit fighting the good fight. Hospice is just another step in this life.
I look forward to hearing what you would like to pass on before it is your time.

Prayers for you and your family.
If I may say so, you sound pretty squared away, and with the right priorities. The sign of a life well lived.
God bless you.

Sorry to hear you have turned the wagon toward home. May the last leg be filled with wonder and a peaceful heart. Looks like you have seen many beautiful things from both earth and sky. Hospice folks can be angels.
