Retired June of this year after 47 years in Telephony. DW is retired from school district, but still likes to sub in the middle school on the terms.... Bought 2017 Jayco 321RSTS in July and we try to camp as much as possible. It's a whole lot easier to camp during the week than the weekend!!

May 31, 2010 -- retired after 26 years in the Marine Corps.

Tried the not working thing, but DW told me I should get out and do something, so in 2014 I went back to work as a security supervisor and defensive tactics instructor. Though I only work two weeks on then two weeks off, with every Sunday off.

Smile I are

Retired electrician since 2007. Worked part time for first four years for local electrical contractor but found part time got to be more than full time so pulled the plug - pun.

Play around in wood shop, golf, and RV now. Really enjoying it.

Yes, retired full time. Was a partner in an electrical engineering/electrical contracting firm. Got an offer I couldn't refuse in 1987, been full timing since.

Retired July 2015, at the young age of 62, and loving every minute of retirement. It is nice to be able to just go whenever we want and to travel during the week when it is less crowded!

Put my paperwork in this past Monday. Will be officially retired as of 12/1 after 30 years as a union PipeFitter. Currently out on disability since June. Will hopefully be purchasing a white hawk 29reks this winter. Just have to wait on DW who has 4 more years as a teacher before retirement.

Retired in '10. Work sometimes now, when I want and where I want. Work kamping and when home for the last 4 years as a seasonal at Costco, a great company. Nice to work because you want to and not because you have too.
