How is retirement working out so far? If I remember correctly, you said that DW was retiring in APR. Hope to see you guys on the road sometime.
Retirement is going well. Going so well I didn't even know what month it was last week when my wife mentioned President's day and I thought it was still January. Getting rid of stuff at the house. Finally sorted out the tow vehicle decision and today sold my bike to a friend who will enjoy and take good care of it (kind of like placing a pet!). Yes, I think the wife will retire in April a week or so ahead of going to bring the coach home from storage. We need to have the house ready to list as soon as we get back in early May.
Hope all is well with you. Did you decide on the Escapees rally in VT yet?

Sorry for the hi-jack... I just think waiting to experience the RV life is crazy.. jump in now.. you can always trade-in and/or trade up at retirement time...
Yesterday is history. Tomorrow is a mystery. Today is a gift, that's why it's called the present..
Eric, no apology necessary. I completely agree. Lost a sister at 47 a couple years ago and other friends lost to cancer, ALS, and other nasty diseases. We all have expiration dates and we unfortunately don't know what they are. I've seen too many people waiting for all the planets to align and their bank account to get to the "full" reading and they never get to do it as something else happens.
Don't wait for everything to be "perfect"... do it as soon as you can and just make it work as you go!
