I agree, being bored is not an issue. Being away from wife is the issue and deal breaker for me. If its not a deal breaker for you, start packing !!

Honestly, I don't think I could bring myself to leave my wife for that long. It would kill me. I'd miss her incredibly and would probably just deal with the weather.

For better , worse or bad weather.

I think it would be a strain on a marriage. I agree with the previous poster, there are jobs in Florida.
Any chance for a transfer or some other option?

Yes, she is a Critical Care Nurse so doing a per diem gig would be easy to find. But, not easy would be for her to leave her job here. I don't think that's an option.
I think most of you hit it on the nose. I probably would not be bored but would miss her not experiencing the things I would see and do.
I'll just have to be satisfied with waiting for her retirement and in the meantime drool over those Nomadic Fanatic vblogs on You tube.

Yours is a very common problem. We have a similar dilemma. My wife is 14 years younger than me and her mother is still alive. I have been retired since 91 and she is only working 1 day a week to maintain her professional credentials. Sher is a Vascular Ultrasound Technologist.

Everything in life is a compromise. Someday we will be able to go as long as we want and until then, we are still able to travel over 100 days a year, only in 2 or 3 week increments.
I hate the hot humid summers where we live but we just bide our time and make the best of it.
The main thing is enjoy your life where ever you are.

I think norty1 posted a great saying....everything in life is a compromise....and has his situation worked out well, kind of the best of both worlds. And as he said to enjoy your life wherever you are. That says it all!

Norty1 you too!!!!!

My wife is also 14 years younger. Not an issue except for the work/retirement thing.
Yes, I truly have it made. Every weekend we camp (hike, kayak, climb, drink tons of wine and eat good.). Life is good until winter sets in.
Then, I could literally take a gun to my head.

You live near one of the most premier snowmobile destinations in the USA. Have you not tried snowmobiling?

Yup, we have a two-up. I tried, really I tried to enjoy winter. We snowshoe, X-country ski have the snowmobile but I still hate it. It's no fun dressing like the Michelin man and putting that claustrophobic helmet on only to bounce up and down on trails all the while smelling two stroke oil. No, give me a glass of wine and let me bask in the sun after a day out on the kayaks.
Now THAT’s living.

Luckily my wife enjoys snowmobiling as much as I do and we both have no desire to move south when we retire.

I guess If I were in your shoes, I would be gone..
