looking forward to it!
Yeah congrats. I can't say that I am looking forward to retiring, I think I will always do something.
I look forward to living on my time... Not my creditors! At some point I might do some contract work but it will be on my terms.
I retired early. Best move ever. It does seem that I am busier now than I was before retirement. Got to keep moving.
Going out Nov. 1.
Can’t come soon enough.

Congrats Tony, enjoy it! I'm hoping to drop down to part time in three more years, I'll be 53.
Congrats, I am a bit jealous.
This is awesome! Congratulations!
I retired in 2018 at the ripe old age of 55 and I’ve been loving it.
3 years retired now, just got home from 6 weeks in northern Wi. Fishing and enjoying life, Home for 2 weeks, back up North for another 6 weeks, Then home for awhile, then fall,walleye fishing, then bowhunting, then gun deer hunting, then pheasant hunting, then ice fishing ! YUO its a tough life
I am about ready to sell it off and go work for somebody else and make up excuses to wear shorts to work and complain about having to show up at 8 am like all the other employees.
I'm gonna be in the work mix for another 10 years or so. Would put my youngest as just having gone through college. Now if the wife goes absolute ape sheet and decides to double or triple her salary, then I may slip off into the retirement darkness in 4yrs and 7 months when I hit the magical numbers here in VA.
I am also eligible in 2025. Likely going in 2030. Depends on 401k, inflation, and BTC.
I f I stick around until '30 I'd be 53 with 25 years in....not sure if that quals as "early". I guess seeing as how I will be over a decade away from SS (hahahahahahaha, hoooo, boy) it counts as "early."
Thing is I do not think I can ever really retire I would drive everybody nuts if I was idle.
^^^ what make you think retirement makes one idle?

Shortly after my wife and I were married, she looked at me one day and said,
"The day you retire and stay home, that is the day that I will divorce you. First off, I couldn't stand you at home and second off, you couldn't stand you at home!"
She's probably right as I'm sure that if I were to just sit around I would drive her and myself crazy so I guess that I'll just have to keep on working.... at least until hunting season begins!
I don't get that. I am always tinkering around on some retarded project. I may suck at it and end up spending 3x the money on it compared to having it professionally done, but I am always doing something.
Plus, I have found the key to happiness in life- I am never bored. Never. There's always something to be pissed off at, and that keeps me happy.
The wife and I will be retiring at the same time. I have no doubt the transition will have its trying times as we adjust. I will not be a couch potato! I have to many hobbies and passions like hunting and fishing to get bored. I'll soon be 62 and my financial plan had me working another 3 years. That changed after my mom passed. Between the family farm and her other assets us kids are pretty well set with just the inheritance from her estate.
I see myself fishing , hunting, golfing, wood working and being more connected to my kids and grand babies!
Those passions will keep me happy!
