Cant wait. Looking forward to getting out and not having to be any where on any given day. I only have 188 Fridays left to work.

I did something similar. I was traveling too much (29 weeks out of the country in a year and no trips longer than 10 days). I asked for a less tiring job and was refused. I retired 3 weeks before my 59th birthday.

Three months later I was back in my old group as an outside contract employee (aka "job shopper") and put in 18 months at the job they wouldn't give me as an employee!

After "final" retirement and two years goofing around, I went to work as a bus driver for our local transit agency. Two years of that and I really retired. Now 8 years in and no more "back-to-work-itis". Unfortunately, no longer RVing either.

When I retired the first time I bought a Flagstaff BR19SC pop up and did a lot of touring and camping. (Single) Got married and traded in my pop up for a Micro Lite 35DS that my bride and I have fixed up pretty nice.

Loading out and heading up into the White Mountains of Arizona for a week plus of camping at Big Lake.
Retired 4 times this time for good I hope.

Good luck. I retired and moved to Moab and then ended up working again on a contract basis; but a job most would die for.....
This was my office on wheels, and the views each day were spectacular


And, just the other day, offered a contract job as a consultant to an agency in Pocatello. Winter's coming....so my slogan is never say never....

But enjoy it; it can be fun!

Gonna take some time off until the Cotton harvest starts then I will be driving the truck that brings the cotton module in to the gin for ginning.
The season around here can run into the first part of January some years.
