Congrats Rich, sounds like an absolutely fantastic plan...best of everything. A little work as something you enjoy, I'm guessing a nice income that probably more than covers your needs, ability to see family more often but not have them hanging around all the time, and PLENTY of time to RV. Wow, what more could one ask for! Good on you!

Congrats!

Time to turn the page to the next chapter in life. That area of the country (Vegas) has some beautiful places to visit... and you should have time to do so and enjoy life at a more leisurely pace.

It is great when a plan finally comes together and becomes reality.

I'm just beginning to realize that. A 4 hour radius picks up dozens of major parks including Red Rock, Lake Mead, Death Valley, Bryce, Zion, Glen Canyon, Grand Canyon to name a few.

Being a medical person , I racked my brain at what type of part time job Rich would be doing in Vegas and then it hit me . Rich has been hired to certify the new Vegas waitresses have a clean bill of health before Tiger visits .

If you get up this way, let me know. Summerfest is a blast.........

ScienceDaily (Dec. 11, 2009) — A never-approved drug developed to prevent the death of nerve cells after a stroke can efficiently kill cancer cells while keeping normal cells healthy and intact, an international team led by a Tel Aviv University researcher is reporting in the journal Breast Cancer Research.

Stroke drug kills cancer cells and leaves normal cells intact

Just ran across this and thought RinT might be happy to know he might be getting out of the game just in time... Somehow I don't think he would mind a bit if a drug like this proved out.
