Am I Too Old?

I have done a little bit of everything in my working life, worked on the farm with the best mechanic I know, My Pop, a 779 Vicon Dragkine, managed a plant nursery, supervised a landscape crew and for the past 18 years i have worked on high speed envelope converting eqipment. I am 45 now and wondering if I am too old to go back to school. I am considering going to NADC to study Diesel Mechanics. What do you guys think?

Chris, I'm 49, and I'm going back to school this fall.
You're not too old.

Russ (rdc) is going to law school. I'm not sure how old he is but he's up there.

Me><Russ

Edit: I guess I'm too slow. The old man was faster.
