Average age of Ranchers

When we register people, we don't ask their age. Sometimes I think that's a shame because I'd be interested to know the average age of the Ranchers in a particular forum. I have my own theories which I won't share right now. But I thought maybe an informal poll was in order. So... how old are you?

I'm 42.

Nine years ago the average age on my team was 36. A fella who just turned 26 (and was then allowed to rent a car on company trips) and myself had the same average. Which of us lives to the left of the one who does not own a cat? Oh, different problem.

I grew up with TV: saw the Nixon-Kennedy debates, Elvis and the Beatles their first times on Ed Sullivan, Johnson sworn in, a giant leap for mankind.

Old, ok?

Note that you only get the age of those who are willing to answer this question. Not the average age of the Ranchers!

Yep. And you get what age they say they are, not what age they really are. That's what you get for Internet polls!

Hard to say, by the time you read it I'll have aged again
But it's roughly 35.5 at the moment.
