For starters....I add my good wishes on your retirement. I did that 4 years ago at age 70. However, I would caution you on "taking for granted" all that so-called "free time your gonna have". A few months down the road and you probably will realize it has "evaporated". If you really want to travel...then "plan it and then "doggedly" work your plan.

Best wishes
Pat

Congratulations! I still have ~ 3 years to go unless the DW who is already retired tells me it's time to join her. :-)

Congrats you've earned it. I started my adventures one year or so ago after retirement and I still haven't made it out of Texas yet. But I will soon once my last son graduates in 2017.

Congrats!!

I retired in 2007 at age 59. I have never regretted it. The main task I have every day is to figure out what day of the week it is!!!

Congrats on the retirement. I too lose track of he days of the week, so I simplified it. If I have chores to do it's Saturday. If I don't have any chores it's Sunday.

Congratulations and good luck.

I feel fortunate, I was able to retire ~2 years ago at the age of 55. I got lucky and landed a good job the last part of my career that paid well but I traveled an extraordinary amount of time racking up 750,000 air miles in 3 years. I actually reached Concierge Level with American Airlines. Never even heard of this until I got the reward card in the mail. The travel and work schedule just about killed me but was able to save enough money to probably retire 5 years early then my plan. We bought a building lot soon after I retired and I have been staying busy getting ready to build a new house and hopefully be able to travel more in the coach.

Hope everything works for you, enjoy yourself, you've earned it.

Thanks all for the kind comments and words of wisdom!

Now going on one month of retirement. Doing projects around the homestead, made a RV trip from SoCal to the Bay Area, and just enjoying the open schedule. Waiting DW's retirement towards end of year to be able to travel in earnest. Have next years calendar planned pretty full already.

Congrats, Vince. Sounds like you have a plan! I'm now almost 4 months into retirement and enjoying the fact that I'm losing track of which day of the week it is, only visiting the mall or shopping on weekdays, and traveling mostly in the spring and fall.
