Re: Exclusive Interview with Nords!! Early Retiree from the Military

Good background on how you FIREd.


Former Marine here. 75-79. Avionics work on CH-46 helicopter. What you sailors call an AE. Did 2 cruises on LPH-9 (USS GUAM) in the Med. COMPHIBRON 6 (amphibious assault group) FMFLANT in 76 and 78.

Never made it WestPAC while on active duty. However... DW and I may spend a couple months on one of the Hawaiian Islands to wind-down when we FIRE.... Make the adjustment to slow time. Then on to Austrailia for a few months.

So glad people are enjoying this interview with Nords. He has such a wealth of information... Hope his book takes the military by storm!

So many will benefit from it.

Be well,

Re: Exclusive Interview with Nords!! Early Retiree from the Military

Count me in as another person who thoroughly enjoyed his interview. He is such a wealth of information and always so willing to share. I have learned so much from reading his posts.

I PM'd him at the last minute about my trip to Hawaii and hoped that I would hear a few lines from him before I left. In typical Nords fashion, he sent me a long PM telling me all about places of interest, highways to use and tips for saving money. He even offered to give me a surfing lesson! (I feel that I really messed up by not taking him up on his offer. Maybe he will be so kind to offer it again, the next time I make it there.)

Thank you so much for your service to our country, Nords and for being so generous with your time here.

Pam

It's a standing offer!

When Trombone Al & I went out yesterday I kept hearing a whimpering noise. It's March so the water temperature was only in the low 70s, but my daughter insisted it wasn't her.

After a while I realized that it was Al, who's spent at least 20 hours in the water over the last seven days and is soon going to have to go back to northern CA & full wetsuits...

I don't blame him for the wimpering... I lived 20 years in Santa Cruz where they hold the Cold Water Classic Surfing Competition and BRRR!!! They don't call it the Cold Water Classic for nuthin'!

Unfortunately, I'm not too much of a swimmer, but I'd be brave enough to go knee high into those freezing waters.. and it was enough to keep me from ever going full body. I certainly prefer the warmer waters of the Caribbean, Phuket, Hawaii, Florida, etc. 8) Hang in there T.Al! I'm sure Nords would love to see your mug again on some other visit!
