Good luck with your "after" life Donna. I decided to retire at 57 from Boeing - I'd had enough of all the travelling to the various Islamic countires I got stuck with. I've since worked as a transit bus driver, which was good training for our current Class A. After horsing 35 and 40-foot coaches through downtown Everett rush hour, driving our 32-footer is easy.
At just over 70, we don't do anything "hard". Our daily drives are usually less than 200 miles, except the last day headed home, when we might do around 300.
We haven't been out yey this season, much to our disappointment. DW is recovering from rotator cuff surgery and is still doing twice a week physical therapy. We have a family extravaganza coming up. Our son and d-i-l, with 9-month old grand-daughter are coming over from Japan at the end of the month. None of the Washington-based family have seen the new one yet. My sister is coming over from England also, so we'll have a busy 3 weeks or so. Labor Day weekend, we'll have 16 people to cater for, Friday afternoon through Monday lunchtime!
When the smoke clears on the 4th, and we get our breath back, and after our vistors from Japan leave on the 12th, we're thinking of a 3-week trip east of the Cascades, maybe as far as Missoula MT, where #2 grand-daughter is in college.
