Tracy and I are practicing for our retirement. She after 25 plus years in the now defunct mortgage business. I own Sleepy Poet Antique Mall. It is a large 55,000 sq. ft. store. I rent space to other vendors and sell there merchandise. It's a family business, and my son who runs the day to day pays me really well to stay away..Really he likes it when I am gone in the MH. Who would have guessed...Anyway life is good. And I only have the business, so I will never really retire. Check us out at. www.sleepypoetstuff.com

I started a marble, granite, and solid surface fabrication company in '93. This was before they became as plentiful as Starbucks! Along the way we purchased and restored an operational hotel/restaurant, several rental properties, and a fitness center. Quite the combination, but somehow we are making it all work. My daughter should be through college in 8 years.......then maybe we'll FT

If anyone needs countertops.....

My Wife is a legal assistant for a big law firm in los Angeles. She can retire in three years at 65. I run a Campground-Cafe-Mobilhome RV park in the Angeles national Forest for the last 12 years. I can retire at 62 in two years. But I probaly won't. This is like living a camping trip. (campwilliams.com) We get away locally in the RV. Colorado River, Central California and the Beaches. Have a cabin in Big Bear also. Life is good.

I worked for a fortune 100 company for 24 years before I was downsized. I started an RV service and accessories business, about to reach our 3rd anniversary (I don't recommend starting a business in a recession). It allows me to work in an industry I really love and have passion about, and have time to go camping to boot!

My wife and I own an automotive garage that specializes in European cars in Houston, TX.
www.bartuning.com

I am 37 we have 2 daughters 9 and 6. I have very good memories of camping with my family
as a youngster. We bought a MH last year and are creating great memories ourselves!

We are planning on traveling to Yosemite this summer from Houston. I will however need to sell a kidney
to pay for the fuel. Every time I think i have enough gas money in the acct the price goes up! Ahhhh!

Wife and I are retired from L-3 Communications. We did aircraft modifications on military and head of state aircraft. She was an electrical installer and I was a systems test engineer, I had the fun job. Also I am a disabled veteran and did very well in the stock market.
