Two of my Three kids are graduating so next summer/fall may be the timeframe. My wife and I want to do at the same time and we are both, finally, on the same page. It is not a $ thing, we have had that for awile. It's more that we needed and wanted to be around for the kids. Now that their is an end is in sight we are starting to see glimmers of the future. Mainly doing the National parks for two weeks at a time and traveling around doing active vacations.

Next year I will see if I can go part time, 32 hrs with benifits. If so I may stay working. If not I will probibly just just resign. I may either way.

This might just be the beer talking, but I think I've decided on my retirement date. April 2, 2014. The Birthday of Walter Percy Chrysler. Oh, and me!

I'll revisit this in the morning though, and re-assess the situation...

Well, no tongue out picture, but inspired by a nudge from Nords via PM I have started a countdown (including a countdown widget on my phone) to the day I quit. I have chosen January 2, since I should be in the office that day, but will have to double check with DW. That puts me 132 days out. On the road the next couple of weeks for work, but since there is little actual work to be done my buddy and I will spend most of the time in the woods.

T minus 52 weeks, as of today. It's a milestone of sorts; it feels good to reach that one-year-to-go mark.

Btw, akck, you can put me down for 9/1/14.

At first I thought I shouldn't be on the list, because I plan to go part-time, and that isn't really being retired. However, I've noticed that "retirement" comes in all shapes and sizes, and we have plenty of people here who continue to work part-time in retirement, at one thing or another. I read an article yesterday that talked about working PT as a way to have a happy, healthy retirement. So apparently there doesn't need to be an either/or contradiction about it.

Also, I've worked too hard to get to that 9/1/14 date -- been looking forward to it for too long -- to not count myself as part of the graduating class. I know it's going to feel like a major downshift and a transition from one life to another. And besides, I don't want to be buying everyone drinks, lol. So put me down for Sept. 1, Class of 2014.

I just had two of my co-workers retire yesterday, both with 30+ years of service and even more years of experience in their respective crafts. Many more to come in the next few years, probably 50% or so of the specialized trades. Really makes me wonder how Megacorp will handle the brain drain, as there has been little effort to recruit or even encourage mechanical trades training in the local area, as even attrition has been viewed as a cost savings. Part of the desire to ER is because I don't want to be left with a bunch of novices making rookie mistakes - it wasn't that long ago I was in those shoes, and I remember what it was like.

DW and I are now confident of summer of 2014 becoming a perpetual weekend, my planned ER date is 7/4/14, 30 years to the day when DW and I first met. So, please add me to the class of 2014!

Well, the BS bucket just got full again so I'm now contemplating my last day of work being December 31st, and first day of retirement January 1st. Does that put me in the Class of 2013 or 2014? Or do I get to be in both?

Okay, my last day of fulltime employment is Feb 17th, 2014. I go part time after that while I go back to university. I'm not sure if this counts as retirement? I'm going to see how PT works out and if it looks like financially it's going to be just fine, then I'll quit altogether mid 2014.
