I retired on a Friday in april of 2006 From the Superior Court. Started my second career two days later. I'm just waiting for my wife to retire so I can retire again.

Happy Retirement!

My hubby and I have been retired about 5 years. The time goes by sooooo quickly! I am clueless how I ever had time to go to work. So much to do, so little time! We travel some, have a victorian home where we continually have projects, still trying to find time to work on the second airstream, fit in some camping and rallies now and then, visit with family, entertain, and write! This only takes care of a few of the things we have to do!

It is wonderful to be able to devote each day to what you want to do! It doesn't get any better! Enjoy!

Enjoy the rest of your lives - get out and do all those crazy things you haven't had the time to do. Stop and smell the roses all over the country(s) you are traveling through.

And of course we'll expect pictures .

LOTSA LUCK, to YA....

I don't know why I retired because I made hundreds of dollars every week for doing absolutely nothing! Only thing that changed is that now I do absolutely nothing and don't get paid for it!

After being retired for 6 years, I'll be making my biggest trip next year when I go to my local Social Security office.

Okay, so now we get to spend our summers and fall in MT, living on the banks of the Yellowstone River, and we're in Paradise (Paradise Valley, that is).

And fishing, did anyone say fishing? Here's a couple pictures of trout 2 friends of mine caught when we were on the Yellowstone a couple days ago.

Nice ones Flyfisher. They say work is for people who don't know how to fish. Well like Carol's husband Brad, I won't be working after Friday either, but I don't know how to fish. I'll add that to my to do list.

Carol, a great thread! It's fun to see what everyone retired or nearly so is doing. This shows what a diverse forum we are, from threads about families with little children to retirees with grandkids and everything good inbetween. Glad we'll see you at Top Sail in January ~G

Glad that you and Brad are going to be able to make it to Topsail in January. You are one of the people I was looking forward to seeing again! Enjoy your journeys this fall and stay in touch with the forum and post lots of pictures of your inaugural retirement journey.

See you at Topsail!

I'm six years ahead of you and in training, too! I keep trying to figure out how to speed time up without giving up the 20 years in between now and then. Unfortunately, early retirement (at least at this age) is not in the future. Not unless I win the lottery...first I have to figure out how to play Mega-millions!

Congrats Carol and Brad!

I retired in early 2006 after 30 years in high tech/high stress, and tired of laying people off. Took a month to de-compress, and get used to not needing to get up for 6AM conference calls and 9 AM Saturday flights to Hong Kong... Didn't do big Airstream trip, as Dianne continued to work part-time. After 2 months, I found part-time gigs that paid well and were interesting, so we were semi-retired.. After a few slow and quiet months this spring, an offfer came along to join staff of local employee credit union and do good deeds for a couple years, so that is end of retirement round 1...

Best advice is that each situation is different.. Be realistic about money, health and shared interests, and don't put off things until later unless there is good reason.. We are continuing to work down our lifetime "To Do List" and fortunately new employer happy letting me take 6 weeks off each year. plus or minus...
