the hours sucked but the profit margin was great .....lol ..... again .....

Cool thread...My most important job was FT Mom and I also loved it (and LOVE being Gamma to twins) My current profession is a RN and Licensed Midwife, but for the next ??? years I am retired. Plan to work/volunteer at whatever I can/need to in order to be a traveling FTer.

I am an aircraft mechanic for a major airline. My wife is a traveling ER Registered Nurse. Hope to retire somewhere within the next 8-12 years. But who knows, that is so far off, yet it will be here before we know it.

Forced into an early retirement 4 years ago. You guessed it, banking industry bottom fell out. No, my nickname is not Bernie

No plans to work FT or PT unless the rest of the economy's bottom falls out. Enjoy the RV lifestyle too much.

Retired at 51 years of age 2 years ago, before that I was a service manager for a large Honda dealership. Now to keep doing what I like best (full timing) I'm living on a fixed income and trying to figure out how to live on a budget. (never had to before I retired) After DW and I have some fun and travel this year, we will look into volunteer work and workamping.

I did 27 years in prison. (8 hours at a time). Retired as shift commander at 57. Two months after I retired DW was forced out of her job due to health (retail). I'm now driving school bus for the local district. Gives me summers to do some workkamping (I hope).

DH was self employed all his life as a Custom residential builder. The bottom dropped out of that some time ago. He is semi retired and works for the Sheriff's office as a civilian officer.

I'm still working full time as an R.N. working with the elderly for the government. I plan to retire in June next year but the new Governor may rush that along for me. We are readying our new to us RV for some long trips a couple months at a time, God willing.
