    Bio: Lived and worked in Michigan my entire life/career. Early on I had a co-worker friend retire at 55 and realized I could do the same and that became a focus. Ended up retiring at 58. Enjoying my free time, golfing, family and grand children. Working on making the most of my retirement life and am focused on traveling, starting with places in the U.S. and also working on how to incorporate snowbirding into my future.

    Bio: rodi spent a few decades working in the cable television industry. She loved the fact she got paid to watch tv... until they limited the channels to kiddy channels and sports channels. She married late, had kids late, but retired early! (She got the important part right.) Now she spends her retirement coaching robotics, learning Italian, and reading the books she never had time to read before. rodi is not a rodesian wolf, despite what her husband says.

    Bio: sengsational is an engineer by degree, but being a software engineer paid the bills (and built the nest egg - retired at 54 (the year I turned 55 - no penalty 401k access!)). Got two kids through college and now trying to figure out what's next. Not super serious about any particular thing in life except family, but now that the kids are so capable, I've had extra time. I've tried some adventurous and not so adventurous travel, self-taught musician and perform several times a week (without an audience of course, nobody would sit still for my yodeling).

    Bio: After 29 years in law enforcement, the last eight in the then-new field of computer crime and computer forensics investigations, he bailed to West Virginia and found that being a lazy lout catches on quickly. He likes technology, especially photography, new tools, airplanes, motorcycles, boats, and anything else that goes fast.
