You'll know which to do when you get there. A surprise door no. 4 might pop up as well.

I too had a long list of "to dos" just in case I would be anxious or bored in retirement.
I'm 8 months retired and honestly have not had a boring day. I rediscovered interests and hobbies that have been on the back burner for the past 38 years. I'm having a ball and DH is very jealous (he retires next June).
I live north of Seattle and was concerned about the winters as well. I joined the mountaineers three years ago and took up snowshoe hiking and Nordic skiing and have found I now look forward to winter. Our mountains are beautiful and very inspiring.

However, DH doesn't enjoy snow, so we will plan some winter trips to SW after he retires. We both enjoy golf.

Somehow...things do fall into place if you keep yourself open to trying new things!

Good luck

actually the first 6 months I've got covered, it's the 6 YEARS after early retirement I'm concerned about.
