If you ain't here....get here when you can!

If you're not retired.....get here as soon as you can! It IS as good as they say.

Sitting here in the FL panhandle in a fishing village. Will be here Nov - Feb. Quiet, beautiful, right on the coast (bays etc.). Beautiful folks, laid back, warm.... Just ate a dinner of smoked (on the grill w/ bamboo!!) speckled trout. Off the chain! Come see us when you can!

Hope you all can...as soon as you can! Sorry to all those stuck in the "snow belt".

We also concur. We like the Fort Myers area, but the traffic is worse than Atlanta or St Louis so we stay in Clewiston and then venture into the "big city" on occasion. If we would have known retirement was this good we'd have done it when we were 30........well, maybe not.

Go ahead rub it in...thinking I might come that way sometime in Feb to visit Wekiva Falls SP, have a friend in an rv park nearby, then on to Palm Harbor to visit a friend there, then to somewhere near West Palm Beach to visit another friend. Hopefully to do a little riding at each stop. Have to leave my sweetie at home as she still has to work...

I'm looking at the end of November 2019. Hopefully I'll have enough PTO time to take the entire month of Dec. off, and then officially retire on Jan 2nd, 2020.....so right at 2 years from now.

Jealous for sure.

Right now I have 3/20/2020 as my target. that will put me at 65 1/2 and give me 20 years with the company (that and a quarter might get you into a pay stall, but it seems like something).

DW is 4 years younger so we will have to figure out insurance for her, maybe things will be sorted out by then, but I am not holding my breath.

DW told me that I could retire at the end of Feb 2018, and go on COBRA for 18 months, so decisions, decisions.

Congrats Danny & Susan!

-Brian

Retirement is great! But live life and don't be too anxious to retire.

Work, then retirement, then "end of retirement" LOL

This is a great point and one I may have mentioned previously. Retirement is great, and we have been for over 11 years. BUT, work was wonderful before. I loved my job. I retired because the stars aligned, got a big payout and went. I was NOT mentally ready simply because I loved my job and employees - I went into a 2 year depression because I missed everything. Make sure you are mentally ready, then have all your other ducks in a row. Best wishes to all.
