Wow. You guys are patient. I started counting down at 15 years. Had a countdown clock the last 3 years and 3 months so I could watch the seconds tick by.

Well I'll throw my 4 cents in. Why is everybody in such a hurry to retire? Do you think you'll be in the shape you're in now? Possibly but I doubt it. Life goes by too fast as it is. I've been retired for 14 years now. I miss the job, the guys I worked with and the adrenaline rush of fighting fires. I put 35 years in there and loved it from day 1 until the day I retired. I also put 3 years in the army. Hopefully you're ready in your mind to retire and hopefully money wise also. Don't push it as it'll come before you know it. Stay safe.

We have been retired over a year now. Love it. Do I miss my job, NO. We have run into so many folks who can't believe we retired so young (56) and ask us if we are bored and ready to go back to work. NO. I think the difference is that some of us work to live. The job was just a means to a desired end (financially secure retirement). We have lots of hobbies and friends outside of work. So we are happy retired folks with lots to do. Others seem to live to work. Their lives are their work so they will not be happy retired and should keep working as long as they are physically able. Just my take on it.

Pipeman, I know what you mean.
But the physical toll on my body and that most of the guys were young enough to be my sons and a few grandsons, made me decide to retire.
I didn't want to push my body to the point of not being able to enjoy my senior years.

But I plan on doing some volunteer firefighting/EMS stuff as long as they let me engineer.
