I hate you all!

I have 10 years 7 months and 20 days left until I am eligible for full retirement... Of course I will only be 46 when I am eligible!!!

Hope you all enjoy your retirements! Travel and enjoy yourselves. I'm looking forward to the first long camping trip where we just go to a destination and stay until we are bored and then move to the next destination!

My bride is a nurse, so we are hoping that she can get a job as a traveling nurse when I retire to help fund our trips for a while. They pay a good salary, they pay relocation fees (that should offset our fuel and food budget) they paying housing stipends (we can actually make money on that deal) and she only has to put in 3 months of work per location. The plan is 3 months of work and a month or 2 of leisure and travel, then 3 months of work and a month or 2 of leisure and travel and do that until we get bored! I would either volunteer to camp host or get a part time job wherever we land or volunteer somewhere to kill time while she is working.

Ahh... looking forward to that!

What Day Is It?

After a short bit in the military and the last 28 years in law enforcement I pulled the j.o.b. plug too!

I'm really tired and retired. I called my boss and told him I was taking a few sick days, then I called him and told him I wasn't coming back!

The decision was like the decision to have kids if you think you can afford it you can't so don't wait. Three guys that retired with me have already died from cancer, I'm 53 and have been retired two years.

And I agree, I retired almost three years ago and love it but I find myself more busier than when I was working.

Congrats Shorty!
The DW has 11 months and I have 34. That's what I get for picking an older woman all those years ago.

We wish you well, and happy trails��
