Oh wow Linda! He sounds very trying. It is scary. My Mom is just about to turn 90 (in April) and there's no way she could go hiking. She is quite thin and fragile but still able to get around....very slowly. And I lost my Dad at age 92 not long ago. But up until he got very sick, he was walking 3 miles a day. That's a lot! My Mom had a mild stroke and hasn't been able to go on those long walks for some time. But what's amazing is both of their minds were and are good and sharp. I know what you mean though...when I lived in Idaho, just recently, and I had to climb up on my roof to shovel snow, everyone said to let someone know because if I fell or got knocked out, no one would notice I was missing and wouldn't find me until spring. :rofl1: Or when I'd go hiking by myself, a bear could eat me and no one would know. I never told anyone where I was going and all that. I just went. Of course, they'd probably see my car parked at the base of the trail on those hikes where I had to drive a couple miles from my house. But yeah, it is wise to let someone know and for your Dad to wait till someone is around to do dangerous stuff.
