Retired at 62 and I love it! Now I do nothing all week and rest up on the weekends.

So as I get closer to this coming June I'm scared. How to keep busy?? Being in Canada our camping window is somewhat limited. One acre lot with lots of grass and gardens to keep me busy during the summer. Been with the store for 35 years now. There's a bit of a loyalty thing happening. Going to sit down again in January and discuss department succesion. Nice to be in the drivers seat. Told my wife last night I may offer to stick it out for one more year extra so that will put me at 60. Hopefully by the time I get home this evening she will be talking to me again.
If it's a GM dealer I can send my son in to take over for you and then you can retire

Had planned on retiring in September 2019 but my employer just offered (first time ever) an early retirement package. Will retire December 31st at age 65. Looking forward to putting more miles, and nights, on the Greyhawk! No more camping on crowded holidays, either. Will leave the park sites open for those still working.

Good plan NC as we like to pull into the campgrounds on Sundays and leave on Fridays. Quieter and leaves the weekends for working families to camp.

Retired 3 years this month after selling our AC business at 66 1/2 . Missed it for awhile but I am over that disease now 😄
My wife was scared I would work till I croked . The key is have something that you enjoy doing other than going to a job.

Just turned 64 in Sept. and was basically forced to quit my job (long story). Just filed for SS today. Not much money but better than nothing and the DW will have a pretty decent retirement in a few years. Hope to enjoy some camping time.

As I am retiring at end of the month, a friend at work gave me an appropriate t-shirt.

Retired two years ago at 62, my second after 26 years active duty and 20 years in my "second" career as a contractor.

Retired from the airport Gestopo 10 years ago at 56. Put in 7 years and got fed up with over 400 idiots trying to run TSA (you might know them as Congress). Prior to that, over 30 years as a photo and video journalist. Now I'm more tired since I retired than when I worked for a living.

Really glad I made a bunch of good IPO investments back in the 70's, 80's and 90's. A couple of small companies nobody has heard of (Microsoft, Apple, etc).
