Re: Life Style Question

I suspect that such a book would be 3-4 pages of fascinating information, crammed into a couple hundred pages! :

Either the boating aspect or retirement planning that enabled you to make the move to living on a boat would be interesting.

I agree. Great idea for a book!

Other than the boat, which seems like a great idea and grandparenting, which I know is wonderful, what's on that list? Just some of it, and just curious.

I can make a short list, like (a) travel to Tahiti, (b) Learn Spanish (c) Read a book each week. Nothing really exotic, but several posters have mentioned their "things to do list" and I'm wondering what's on yours, and others for that matter.

Good question. Why don't we continue that in a new thread...

Re: Life Style Question

Bum,

Thanks, I hope you had a good weekend too.

I'm not as diligent as you think though--I am located on the west coast while the forum runs on east coast time. I actually posted at 3:00.

Early retirement does sound like a pretty great deal but I've got a few years (about 30 actually) before I get to that point.

Hang around the forum a while Lindsay, and we will do our best to show you how to chop a few years off those 30...

Oh, I'm counting on it. In 30 years I'll only be 52.
