Retired

I will not be retired for a long time but every time I talk to someone who is they tell me they have more to do than when they worked.

Cactus, congratulations! I retired in May, and haven't started traveling yet-DH still wants a couple of years more in harness. Where to go? Where your will and the wind and whims lead you! Wherever, you'll be free to stay or go as you please. Head out and see where your TV turns; then follow the roads to discover what's around the bends. Happy trails in your retirement and we hope to meet you in camp some day along the way. Merry Christmas! ~M and G

I have about 8 1/2 years to go, but I'm already planning for it. I want to travel in my Airstream and not be on a schedule. Hope you get a good head start on me and maybe we'll run into each other some day.

Enjoy!!!

Hey Cactus. I retired on Mar. 3 of 2000. I have not regretted a day of it as you can't buy back the days you work. I stay very busy and I think that is a key. Don't sit around and gather moss.

The day after I retired, we left Minnesota for Florida. We were gone six weeks that trip and it was too short. We really liked St. Augustine, Fl. We stayed at Bryn Mawr campground right on the ocean and found many sites to visit and good seafood all over the place. It is a little cooler there so the kids are not in abundance. Suited me just fine. We worked our way up the East Coast and ended up in Gettysburg, Pa. six weeks later. It was a great trip.

Hope I at least gave you some ideas. HAPPY RETIREMENT!!

P.S. stopped at Cape Hatteras and did some surf fishing as well!

Congratulations!!!

The question isnt where to go, but where to go first . I bet your gonna have a blast. I myself do not retire for another 26 years, but since I want to excell at retirement, I have started practicing already . Maybe we will see each other on the road.

You can go a bit further south for another week or so, and then join us for the Florida State WBCCI rally in Sarasota the 3rd week in February. After that, you can head back north to stay at Traveler's Rest resort, just off I-75 between Tampa and Ocala for a while. When the weather gets warm, you can start touring the rest of the country.

You will enjoy your retirement. So get use to it. I have tried to retire but I keep getting called back to work. But someday I just gotta say NO MORE! I enjoy what I do and love money too. You should consider yourself, A LUCKY DOG..........
