I retired two years ago last November 9th, and it seems like only yesterday. I haven't regretted it for even a minute and I am still having a wonderful time.
I remember your countdown and the day you retired. If you would've asked me, I would've said it was about 8 months ago. Time really IS flying, and I'm still 3 1/2 years away from retirement.

It really is flying! Here is the thread I began on the day I retired.

5/17/2018: Retired a second time, this time from my volunteer Admin duties. After 10 years of being on the team, and 40,000+ posts, the time just seemed right. It has been such fun to work with all of our Mods and Admins and I plan to stick around as a regular member.

My 5 year anniversary happens on April 1, 2012. I still chuckle about picking April Fools' Day as my official date.

I am happy with my volunteering gigs. I decide to go/not go each week, and show up when I want to. I do let them know ahead of time so they can find a replacement a few days before Friday night. I've only missed 2 nights out of 2 months plus.

I started my terminal leave in early February 2002... odd, I've forgotten the date. 11 Feb? Not sure.

But I was transferred to the Navy's retired rolls as of 2359 31 May 2002!


The book written on, "The Military Guide to Financial Independence and Retirement", on sale now! For more info see "About Me" in my profile.
I don't spend much time here anymore, so please send me a PM. Thanks.
