Default I Did It!

After 32 1/2 years I have pulled the pin... I am now retired...I spent my first official day of retirement on the Vermillion River fishing for Steel...Didn't have the best of days, but who cares...LOL I may want to go find a part time job later; but for now there are fish to catch and flies to tye...

Dan

congrats! it's pretty darned cool for a couple of years to have absolutely ZERO commitments and just fish or whatever else your passions are as much as you want to. after that, i had to find some sort of purpose again. i started doing volunteer work. but it seems that is leading to another career now. but i'm going to set the pace this time around and keep it to no more than half of my waking hours...ok, maybe 2/3. but it is something i've been doing 20-30 hours/week even when nobody was paying me.

enjoy yourself! and don't let anyone else tell you what you "should" be doing with yourself. you paid your dues. you own it now.

Congratulations on your retirement.......I was planning on it this year but my 401 is now a 101 & I had to push it back a year. I'll get there . I volunteer for the state at the Pequest trout hatchery now & I'm involved in the March Of Dimes so if i was retired I think that it would take over for work anyway...
