I've never thought of MS as a disease of the young.  I thought it was something that happened when you get older and need a walker or wheelchair and all of that.  Honestly, I didn't even know what it was until my sister was diagnosed.  But, most people are diagnosed between 30 (which we all know is the new 20) and 40 (which must be the new 30).  People are living longer and feeling younger.  Let's find some other youngsters out there who aren't letting MS win.

Here's one!  Ripley Davenport.  www.ripleydavenport.com  This badass crossed Mongolia, on foot!  He man hauled his gear in a cart he made.  I'm so happy I have a horse!
