I quit (retired again)

Sept. 18th is my last day at work. I retired from this job in 2010 and hired back on in 2013 and at 67 yrs old figure I am now going to let the young studs have it all. I have been working for ADOT as a master mechanic for 24 years now so it's time to have some fun.

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.

The road goes on forever and the party never ends.

I retired on 1/12/14, at 60 on account of some health issues. I was working at 2 ful-time ministry positions! Now I am still working only 1 position until I retire from that, probably about 67, so I have several years to go yet. But, I am self-employed and contract to a not-for-profit as exec. director. That means I can set my own hours, and go fishing whenever I want. My wife of 31 years is my assistant, so when I go fishing, she goes, too and we close the office. It's a good arrangement for now, but . . . You know what "I'm retired" means? I was tired yesterday, and I'm tired again today. Re-tired! Enjoy your travels!

Congrats. Sounds familar I retired at 60 then went back to work for the same place 6 weeks later (Law Enforcement in a small town), turned 66 this past month and am starting to look forward to the Retired Again thing fairly soon. My wife and have a 2004 Wildcat that we have used maybe 20 times so I am beginning to think it may be time to start enjoying the 5er a little more!
