Well Hugh, belated congratulations on your retirement.
Happy riding, time to go out in the world and do good, as opposed to going out to work..........Rod.
Work is the curse of the riding class
Not that I'm counting
I have reached my retirement age of 62 and can now retire without any penalties. I might go the middle of July but things are crazy at work and I may stick around through the end of the construction season as long as I can get some time off for a road trip or two.
Just knowing I can retire whenever I want makes things a lot better.

Tomorrow is my last working day after 30 years in the Army.
I can identify heavily with a lot of this thread. I also put my retirement paperwork in a year out. Supposed to glide out slowly but the last three weeks have been the most intense in two years. Major inspection, lots of other intense silliness. So tomorrow, at the end of the inspection, I got on leave for a week, get a parade and start outprocessing. See you in Sedalia.
29 months, 2weeks, 5days not that I'm counting.
The thing about traveling is, you never want it to end and you can't wait to get home.
I answer to Roy, Chief, or Sarg.

Interesting that this thread is still going! Haven't been in touch for a while, because my password somehow changed, and I couldn't get in. Didn't have time to fiddle with it until now. That's right.....didn't have time. I retired on January 20th, and have never looked back....wish I had done it years sooner. I play golf 4-5 times a week, ride a lot, am officiating local amateur golf events, and generally spend so much time enjoying life I cannot explain how I ever had time to work. No more airport pat downs for my metal knees, as I drive or ride anywhere I go now (except overseas - going to Italy in October). Went to the Masters two weeks ago, riding to Vegas in two weeks. Life is great. Stop working......start living!
Life is a Cabernet!
