2 years ago I moved to Helena Montana and my riding abilities have come back to where they were 20 years ago.  If you love riding, but have to drive more than 20 minutes to trails do yourself a favor and move.  Downsize and ride more, it is the key to happiness.   My other advice is get a modern hardtail, they ride amazingly well and remind me why I started riding in the first place.  Sure I am faster (on most trails) on my full squish, but I have less fun 90% of the time.  There is nothing like keeping up with a rider 20 years younger on a 5 inch travel bike going DH while riding a hardtail.   1 more tid bit, never stop learning new skills.  I tried trials riding and being able to hop onto and over stuff is so much fun.  It isn't the easiest thing to learn, but you can do it in low risk ways and it makes riding so much fun.
