Congratulations and all the best to you.
Same here! 5 years or so and we can kick...I mean gently nudge the kids out of the nest, sell the house and begin RVing around the continent. Congrats to you!! Now start a blog about your travels so I can live vicariously through you.

wow thanks for all the kudos and congratulatory remarks... I have learned one thing in retirement... there is never a good time to drive through Atlanta in an RV!

Excellent...enjoy.

I'll never forget my first day as an escapee, a Wednesday. I'd taken my pickup down to the shop to get the clutch tweaked, and I was sitting in the waiting room happily reading a book and drinking coffee when the desk clerk came in and said she was sorry, but there was going to be a half-hour delay for some reason or other. I said, "No problem…I don't have anywhere else to be this morning." And her reaction was so relieved, as if she could barely believe she'd wasn't about to get chewed out over an unexpected time loss on a day off. When she was gone I had to put my book down and think about that one for a while.
