I am 58 , I do the majority of the house tours here at Ravens Grin Inn which has me traveling almost half a mile up, down and around and under this house(seven physical levels!)
I got smarter long ago I don't "chase" I may have to hustle once and awhile from point "A" to pointless "B", but I designed in shortcuts for my path and lengthend the customers foot travel. Once and a while some punk who hasd been here more recently will decide to make it a race but I still usually win because of the path-thing and I am still quick for short distances.(especially in bed!)(poor wife!)
There is my one very popular shortcut , a fireman's pole, it gets me through real quick and they just can't se how I could be here and then there!?
Of course this pole is hidden from normal view.
As I get older I rely upon my natural gift of looking 58 years old to help me to unnerve many of them, yes I might drop dead and fall on you! SCARY!
I use storytelling and acting and no make up or actual costume, then when I get goofy they can't tell, "Is it real? Or Memorex?"
