I retired about 5 years ago just before my 56th b'day.
Spent the first year or so completing all of the house projects. Then "forced" my wife to retire, or meet me while I was traveling.
We spent a couple summers traveling in our '93 Newell. Then finally sold the house and traded up to a '98 45' 2 slide Newell which we full timed in for 2 years. Recently sold it and bought a house in a retirement community in SE Louisiana.
Our travel plans will be monthly house/cabin/condo rentals during the summers and shorter trips. We spent March in Utah and have cabins rented in Colorado for July and August.
