Congrats! Hubby's employer said you could work two more years and end up with the same retirement as now and guess what he did? Yep, left the company after 31 years and has not regretted a day. And when he said he was retiring, I said he couldn't do it without me. LOL. We were lucky in that he was grandfathered in to the healthcare plan so we didn't have that to worry about. We have been living in the mountains (boondocks) for 5 years now and do not regret it. Just bought a 2015 Blackstone and are anxious to hit the roads for some trips. Enjoy!

Counting the days

Two years, four months and 27 days...not that I am counting! If an early out offer comes, it will be sooner. Luckily I started preparing for retirement the day I was hired. That 10 then 15% plus matching 5% really added up. DH and I are starting our MH buying adventure. Figure we will take our time, look at as many makes and models we can. A lot less pressure from salesman when we say we are 2 yrs away from buying. We started taking notes of what we like, what we don't. Quality of product. Dealers we feel comfortable with and one's that just don't click! Enjoy your retirement and your next adventures!

Congrats on the retirement. At 67, it's been 10 years into retirement and it's a great gig. These last 10 years have proved to be of more value than any monetary gain ever could have.

That first wake up of retirement almost killed me though. I woke up laughing so hard I choked on my own spit. After I regained composure, I slept until 10:30 AM... and never looked back.

It may not seem like it right now, but you're on the right path, grasshopper.

We sold our business and retired at 62 8 years ago. The medical insurance was a real killer for us as we were both cancer survivors. Hopefully your wife can continue with you on her policy. Healthcare is a bear until 65 when Medicare kicks in, but even that is around $600 total per month for us.

Congratulations! I retired 2 years this month. Like you I was stepping through my 56th year of life when I had enough of the drama and was financial able to retire. The only regret I have is I miss visiting all of my 'work family' on a daily basis.

Regrets aside, I've been having a good time doing all the long delayed home improvement projects, traveling, socializing, visiting the grandkids, and generally enjoying life.

Rock on!
