Remember Date You Retired?...Know Date You Will Retire?

Funny, I can't seem to remember and can't find any papers right now from around then to help me out. Maybe there is something wrong with my mind or does this happen when you have nothing to do all day.

I know it was June something 2001.

Wonder if unclemick (14 yrs! -way to go uncle) is the holder of longest retired...

Same here Dan...June of 2001. I was warming up for several months prior, but July was my first full month "off".

I know the first possible date when I can retire, and the last possible date I might retire. The difference between the two is only about 8 months.

Jarhead or HaHa may hold the record for longest early retired on this board.

Hey Jarhead, time to check in!

If all goes as planned its Jan 3, 2008. I tried to get a buyout last year and it fell through. If that happens again I will just go out around July 30, 2008, that would be 35 years working for me. Sounds like enough time even in non ER forums.

7/1/06 -- almost a full year.....does not feel that long. Time moves fast -- even when you don't have to rush around.

Although we've certainly worked off and on (mostly just when a project looked like fun) since then.....but never at any kind of regular or full time job.....I'd have to say, August 17, 1992....the day we rolled out of our driveway in a VW Westfalia van heading out to take a year off and explore Mexico and Central America......we didn't know at the time that we'd never go home, the house would end up being sold to the housesitter and that we were embarking on a nomadic life that we would continue to this day......perhaps it's better sometimes, not to know the future. Had we known it at the time, we'd probably have been scared to leave....but in the end, it all turned out wonderfully, so....

Your last day of work was June 29, 2001. Actually, that was the last day you were "at" work, but you started slacking off well before that.

Yep, that's it, Al's mind is made up and he's sticking with it.

ok, I admit I practiced doing nothing for a few months years to make sure I could handle it. (they let me telecommute the last 2 years, it was confusing when it was time to take vacation)

Today the spreadsheet tells me my nominal retirement date is April 1, 2022, shortly before my 53rd birthday.

My last day of work was 06/02/06. I received an invitation to my 35th high school reunion and it stated that it had been 35 years since our 06/02/71 high school graduation. I did not have a clue as to the date of my high school graduation, but 06/02 is pretty memorable to me now!
