We are retired and on just my Social Security. Does that mean we're OINKS? Well, we still have one at home in college so a couple more years of OIKIC.

We are OIOP. One income one parent. My wife is caregiver for my 94 year old Mom with dementia.

We are DIGKWK (duel income, grown kids with kids), in other words: Grandparents!
Great institution, unless they live with you... Last boomerangs moved out a little over a year ago. So, now we just have furry babies.

Fellow DINK

We just retired, so I guess that would make us a FINK, (fixed income, no kids). Feels pretty good.

DINKs here (+cat, but he stays at home, hates to travel).

We are reasonably young (46/32), but so looking forward to retirement now that we have the Airstream. Glad we invested in it early to realize that we do love the lifestyle and not waiting another 20 years.

Well, its nice to see that although not many DINKs, many other types of nice and friendly people. My wife says I am not friendly, and I have to agree. I am kinda anti-social. But I'm working on it.

Boat to AS....

Yep, we fit....and came off the boat, as well. Cruising is sure easier on those forgiving roadways!:

Boat gone but not forgotten....and still have Buffet on the Victrola....

I don't miss the boat one bit. They say the two happiest days in a boat owner's life are the day he buys the boat, and the day he sells the boat. Certainly true in my case.

I enjoyed 15 years of boating, but I'm ready for a new adventure.

Come on now he is only one mouth to feed. He was 10 months old on his way to three months in Alaska. He loves to travel and meet lots of people but he is bit nervous during the actual driving part.




Hager our last fur kid loved the driving part of the trip. He would spend hours looking over my shoulder making sure I was driving properly.

He would let me know if something didn't look right.

My husband and I are DINKS. No kids still working and get away every weekend we can. We will retire in 15 years. For now we just take very long road trips.

My wife and I are DINKS. Mid 50's and still working, but planning an 18 month sabbatical from our careers to go out and do those things we enjoy now, rather than wait until retirement. Would hate to be those who wait until it is too late and are unable to do the things they love once they have the time.
We will be packing up our "Shiny House" with bikes, golf clubs and hiking boots later this Summer to circle the US in search of new adventures! Please let us know if there is anyone out there sharing the same interests

We are DINKS. 39/35. I work from home and the wife is part time. We get lots of long weekends away within a few hours of Portland and we make the odd long trip as vacation time allows... Building up to the retirement dream
