I'm an early retiree and loving it

I retired two years ago from a state agency when they offered an incentive I couldn't refuse. I had planned to go back to work after a month off, but I discovered that I enjoyed not having to work so much that I never went back.

My wife retired a few months later from her government job and now we enjoy traveling (we bought a motorhome) and being with our two grandchildren. But most of all we enjoy not knowing what day it is most of the time.

We plan to pay off (or pay down) our home and motorhome when we reach age 59 1/2. We should have enough left to supplement our pensions and I am considering converting a little of my traditional IRA to a Roth IRA each year.

I look forward to reading messages on these boards and may even post one or two eventually.
