I am 51 but if I had a whole 48 hours available to me, I'd probably go for 
it.  The thing is, I have a lot more going on in my life these days than 
ham radio and don't get a whole weekend to contest.  The times I have 
available are kind of random, so I may have no time at all the first 24 
hours of the contest and then 12 hours scattered about for the second 24 
hours. Cutting the contest back to 24 hours may limit my participation 
time even more or cut it out completely.  

I am sure there are others with similar situations.

73, Zack W9SZ
