Scary thought - are they perhaps the same people?

Well not really. Wouldn't class us as "typical" saga types either - whatever that might be. And no, neither are we louts. We have discovered however that  there is a lot of life left in us older dogs (Skilos) as yet. Indeed for a short while we were the skilos club (long story). We then called ourselves Stella Pensioners (after Stella Pension) and knowing that sadly this year few of us will be at that location another name developed.  Many none-Stella had joined us over the years at Livicon anyway. Many of us are of course eligable for that age bracket, some deny it and others hide it and there  are honorary members (Not many though when I think about it).

As 2 of the 8 founder members of the Skeelos Group who has now grown into the Saga Louts, which has now got a membership of 30.

We are now accepting applications for The Growing Old Disgracefully Group.

Hopefully, we can bring all the members together at the Meltemi Club this week!!!!!!

Just curious - any other old backpackers/island hoppers out there?  For instance, anyone ever stayed at the old Plakias youth hostel, opposite where they built the new church on the way into the village?  (by "new" I mean it was built in 1991-2)

I know one guy I met there in 1991 still comes back every year though his hostelling days are behind him.  Comes to us all in the end.
