I'm a semi-retired rebar estimator. I just do a little freelance work now. My wife was a middle school teacher, now retired.

Wife and I own and are administrators of a Home Health and Hospice.

I have 60 or so employees of which 3 are Male.

So it seems like herding Cats for a living.
An RV'r is someone driving a $300,000.00 Motorhome towing a $40,000.00 car and looking for a free place to park.

I am President of a family owned General Contracting business my Grandfather started in 1921. My Dad is 87 and still comes in every day and I will be 66 in April. We do not do any building any longer. We have invested in rental property over the years and manage those now. My wife works for a company that makes ejection seats for Military fighters. We both would like to retire within the next 4 years. I am getting SS now, but she is 10 years younger, and won't get SS for a while.

Both the DW and I, are retired. I was a Safety Engineer, for a major insurance company and she was/is a Registered Nurse. We are now, living off our retirement plans, SS and our investements, plus, we took out a reverse mortgage on our home. We are both in our 70's, healthy and life is good.

Both retired telecommunications technical associates for Verizon. 32 years for me 23 for DW. Early buyout means a long way to SS but we saved our pennies and bought our first house together for less than half what some of our co-workers paid that only had one income. Paid that off before buying another home. Now we are snow birds for the first time and enjoying not seeing snow. Any time I decide I miss winter I will stick my arm in the freezer for a half an hour to remember how much fun it was.

For the time being going back to work is not in the picture. For those of you still at work, hang in there. We never thought it would come either.

We are both retired. DW was in retail and I was a Federal Civil Service employee for more time than I wanted to be. We live off our pensions and SSA. Not wealthy and never will be. We get by(just barely) but we enjoy camping very much.

I am a federal employee working as an electronics technician supervisor GS13 at Naval Base Norfolk VA. I've been here since I got out of the Navy in "81". I supervise the Nato SeaSparrow Missile System and Surface Gun Fire Control Section.
I was Tech Rep until I made Supervisor a couple of years ago. I have had some great experiences traveling around the world to fix or repair our Navy Warships. I hope to retire in a couple of years.

Retired federal employee. Started in 1967 employed at Puget Sound Naval SY as an apprentice. Worked on some of the coolest shipboard electronic equipment that included Terrier (huge system that was a really fun challenge), Tartar, and Nato Seasparrow Surface Missile Systems. Touched on a lot of other Navy equipment like gauge and equipment calibration, communications, air search radar, gun fire control, missile launchers, and more. Last 13 years were as an IT weenie. Total of 42 years as Electronics Tech for the Navy and Army. Somewhere in there was 3 years in the Army working on ground surveillance radar.

I'm retired

Wife runs an inhome daycare for six little ones

Maybe some day we will get on the road full time, but for now we enjoy camping as often as we can
