While technology is great - I'm still old school enough to keep paper maps etc. around along with the non-connected whistle.

Our office assigned unit (a nice van) has no GPS but everyone in the office always uses their 'smart' phone to navigate. I'm paranoid enough that I put the new paper state road map in the van just yesterday.

On the "getting old" front - I just sent in the paperwork to start my pension payments from the former job as I hit 65. I'm going to go for another three years in my current agency to get a second pension so I'm an official "double dipper"! Also, it will help pay for the grand kid trips!
