So what's the average Chowhound's age?

I was just wondering what the age range was on Chowhound. I'm a 20 year old student, & I thought I was rather young to be such a foodie. When I first started checking out CH I assumed everyone was older, but as I keep checking out the site I keep seeing a bunch of young people.

So c'mon hounds, how old are you?

                thanks vvvindaloo (i like your name) ;-)

          2. I think there is quite a wide range of ages represented on Chowhound, which is nice. I'm 37.

            1. I was just having an email exchange with a chowhound and WE think most of us are in pre/mid/post-geezerdom. I'm 62 and I'm hoping that makes me middle-aged here. It will be interesting to see if this garners many responses.

              1. 48, going on 29 :)

                FYI, think it is great to see younger people on here. I great perspective and variety.
