Yes. Stay busy as a board director at a membership campground, buying & restoring old Coleman lanterns and stoves and re-sell on eBay.

When time permits, occasionally do a honey-do item.

I haven't voted yet... I was trained and licensed as an aircraft mechanic (A&P) but have worked in the telecommunications industry for 43+ years... All of that comes to a screeching halt on October 20 when I retire from BNSF Railway as a Licensed Electronic Technician. So... I'll vote on or about October 21...

Retired from the military with 20 years, but still have about 18 years at second job before I can completely retire. So...Retired? Yes and No.

Yes, since 2002. Had to wait until DW could retire in 2015.

Truthfully, throughout life, you never retire. You just change career paths.

Yes and No.

I have to wait until 2026 or '28 for full benefits, depending on which pension plan. Throw in some confusion because Medicare may be shifting to 67 years-old too.

SWMBO already left the rat race.

Hoping and planning to retire at 60. (That may be a dream.)
If so, I have 19 years, 1 month, 8 days, and 23ish hours.....but who's counting?

Nope - but only work half the year - three week rotational schedule on the north slope. When not at work I'm with the trailer on adventures.

3 years. Can't wait. Doing all I can to make sure it happens and keep pushing for the Handshake. Tired of keeping up with technology...burns a person out, especially IT Security.
