Long retired, finally free! Excited & terrified!

Selling the house I have lived in since 1966, disposing of almost everything, escaping Paradise (actually the Land of the Lotus Eaters) to wander until some place sings to me. Would like to hear from others who have done the same.

I will echo the sentiments of good luck. Not certain from where you are leaving; but, I have seen that the grass is greener phenomenon extends to retirement living situations as well. Hope your journey is what you expect.

I wish you luck. Please keep us updated on your wanderings

At some time - probably in another 8-10 years, we plan to do the same for a couple of years. However, we'll probably return back to Denver. We love it here.

How are you travelling ?
I don't know where Paradise is currently, but what's the first stop of your trip ?

Paradise is in Lancaster County PA. Just a few miles from a bunch of other unusual named places in the area.
Here's a link:

Best wishes, wherever you travel.

Thanks for the link, its pretty funny.
Well now I see why you want to leave Paradise.
I bet the other 1,128 people there will miss you, you might start a stampede

We are doing it to a point. Sold up, downsized to a small rental. Travel frequently for extended periods. Always on the lookout for that special place. I suspect that eventually it will be two places...not sure where but that is my hunch. Definitely one will be well away from a winter climate.


It is a very liberating exercise.
