Good for you, I retired on my 61st birthday. Two years ago in March. You will wonder how you ever had time to work. Enjoy....

Congrats, I am so busy doing things that I didn't have time to do before, that I have no idea when I had time to work. You will find this out also. The only thing I wish is that I would have retired sooner. Enjoy!!!

I put in 31 years with the Santa Fe Railroad and retired in 2004. Like so many say, I don't know when I had time to go to work, I have so many things to do.

Life is to short, enjoy it. You are younger today than you will ever be. Be safe, Don

Congratulations on the retirement. I can retire on May 1 st 2013 after working close to 44 years for the same company. I will be 62 at that time. I have a great retirement but the health insurance has me concerned.

Thanks Everyone

I don't have any travel plans yet. Bought a DP last summer so anything could happen, my wifey is going to keep working for awhile, years probably, she needs to to pays the bills on all my toys haha. I will be 55 in April but the only travel plans so far is a retirement birthday party at the
Eldorado Royal April 16, come on down if ya wanna live like a king for 9 or 10 days . Who knows next winter I might be a solo snow bird for 6 months.I have a buddy who is in Florida this winter and he's loving the weather and not missing shovelling snow and the cold. Will no doubt take off a lot of fly fishing trips this spring and summer.
Thanks
Dale M
