I am an Optician, author, lecturer, consultant. Have been doing this for 40 years, now. Travel a lot, mostly flying, but I love to travel in our RV. I've done a couple of speaking dates on the road. That works for me. I could retire that way.

I was an engineer - initially as an apprentice at British Aerospace (it was English Electric back then). I switched to the machine tools industry, then Norton motorcycles. In view of the crappy salaries UK engineers were paid, DW and I and two kids emigrated to the US, in 1968, when I got a job with Boeing.

Fast forward 29+ years and I retired. Got cheesed off with retirement and went to work as a transit coach driver for our county transit agency. When they opened up some express commuter routes that hit the road at 04:40 requiring a report time 20 minutes earlier, I decided I was "fully" retired.

That was 6 years ago, and I haven't felt the need to "un-retire" since! Unfortunately, the reduced income has forced us to give up the RV lifestyle.
