Re: My Retirement Situation (38 yrs old)

I think you guys are right about the buyout. My number was based on what I thought he has available to pay and willingness. But, a lump sum and a residual payout would work perhaps. I am going to bank my cash for 2-3 more years, our lease is done in 2009. Then hit him up with a decent looking proposal.

It is going to be odd though. If you watch Entourage, I would equate it to "E" wanting to get bought out and leave the crew.

Oliver! Do you have a better link? That one isn't working any more?

Re: My Retirement Situation (38 yrs old)

Shabber, a note of caution on your expected inheritance. Would your mother be willing to start transitioning the assets to you now? Unless there are imminent medical problems, her life expectancy is probably in the 80s at least. If she needs a nursing home or other types of care, this can deplete her wealth. I also expect end-of-life care provided by medicare to become means tested in the next decade or two.

I'm sorry? Get to carry a gun. Every one in Texas has a gun. It's the law! They are issued at birth!
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

Re: My Retirement Situation (38 yrs old)

where does the park ranger go when he wants to get away from the stresses of the job?

here in new york our park rangers are locked in a battle with the state.they are considered peace officers ,are fully armed yet have the lack of certain police powers they need to do their job.
if they see a car say on a logging road at night with people in it and they think they are up to no good they have only 2 choices.
arrest them,or forget about going over to question them.without police powers they cant question sounds like a pretty crappy low paying job right now at least in new york.
the new york dec are actually considered the police and they dont want the rangers getting that status.last year the governor vetoed the bill to empower them and its up again this year for approval.

maybe hot dog vendor with a wagon would be a better choice of stress free job?
