I am a retired mechanic (auto) and now a Sr Systems Engineer for Dell
(been in IT the last 22 years). Wife is a homemaker. I work remote, so, my office is either in the house (S&B), or the RV (even in the back yard, like now when the house if full of grandkids). And... best of all, we can go camping pretty much anywhere, anytime and I still can do my job, get paid and be on vacation.

Retired Environmental Conservation Police Captain now partner in a Consulting business specializing in Hunting Accidents and hunting and firearms safety, www.huntsrc.com. Most work can be done wherever I get internet and phone service. The MH will let me take the DW and my work on extended trips that are work and pleasure and visiting the kids that are now from coast to coast.

I'm a software configuration manager and my wife is a systems/mechanical engineer for a large aerospace company.
Can't wait to hit the camping trail to kick off the '14 season.

I just retired at the end of 2013 after 30 years with ExxonMobil. My DW is an investment banker and plans to retire by mid-year.

Pay for it all by spending my kids/grandkids/greatgrandkids inheritance. (If I run out of money, they've got plenty to keep us away from their door!

When our kids ask (joking I hope) "what are you leaving us", we respond (not joking) "Whatever is left".

We tell our 2 boys exactly the same thing, "Whatever is left and we are enjoying pissing away your inheritance. Hopefully we won't have to mortgage the house, trailer, car & truck."

The way I look at it is "Iworked for it, I earned it, therefore I can spend it anyway I want"
