Re: Addicted to making money

Well, I never planned on retiring; ever.* But, I did.* *It took me about a year adjusting to really get into retirement.* But, I am there. I could go back, but not without some adjustment the other way. So, I think I'll just stay here.*

Re: Addicted to making money

Audrey,

Can I have you tell my wife that. I would love to do what you are doing. She keeps asking, "What do we do when we get tired of doing that?"

You go do something else!!!

We used a 10 year timeline for planning purposes. In our experience 5 years goes by in a flash. In fact, it took 5 years of retirement before we figured out that RV fulltiming was for us. We love to travel and camp and we were really, really tired of having a house tying us down plus wanted to move out of the big city.

There is so much in North America to explore and experience by RV that it really would take many years to feel like "been there, done that".

But for us - as soon as we figure out something else we'd rather do, we'll go do that!

Re: Addicted to making money

I am definitely addicted to making money. I think it can actually be a character FLAW. I ALWAYS have $$ on ym mind. whether its my 9-5 job, my own business, rehabbibng a property, buying/reselling a vehicle, selling stuff on ebay, etc etc.

IT's very taxiing (no pun intended) on me. It's always on my mind, and I think it makes me LESS productive

(all this written as I sit at my 9-5 surfing the 'net)

Re: Addicted to making money

Audrey and DOG51,

Fulltiming can be a great adventure...

My DW and do not full time as we still have a house in Ohio.* But we are official residents of Texas where is No state income tax.* We overnight more than 50% outside of Ohio so we can get around that issue.

BTW we have a'05 Dutch Star, 40' 4 slides.* Lugging an overweight Chevrolet Blazer...

I posted a photo of our rig (36ft Alpine Coach) and how we got into fulltiming in my original "Hi, I am..." post: http://early-retirement.org/forums/i...p?topic=5603.0
