    Woke up this morning.........

    I woke up retired this morning. All done. Got the watch and the bonus yesterday.

    I am in the midst of a move to sunny Yuma, Arizona. Our household goods are on their way and my Goldwing and Silverwing are already in Yuma.

    Our Coleman pop up camper is packed and we are heading out for central Washington State to Steamboat Rock State Park for two weeks and then the weather man picks the next place. We will be camping until Sept 1 and then start migrating down to Yuma.

    For those that retired before me...... tell me what you are doing, did with your free time.

    My email will change to LarryinYuma AT Yahoo DOT com and I might change the screen name here.

    Busier now than when I was working.
    Pursue your hobbies and interests, Larry!
    You'll soon get out of the 'got to get it done because it's the weekend and back to work Monday' to, shucks, it's Saturday and it's going to be busy. I'll wait until Monday!
    Does that mean you won't be attending the North Cascades Camp Out in Aug???

    Congratulation as well. I'm 14 weeks away myself. I hope to do a lot more riding and camping through the week and leave the weekends for those that still have a 9 to 5.

    I have no clue how the heck I ever worked full time. My days are full with either my own projects, Susan's projects, or volunteer work at the Loudoun County Animal Services. Best things Susan did was hand me a wad of cash and my motorcycle keys when I retired and said "see you in 3 months".

    Congratulations Larry! Some days I honestly don't know how I had time to work! I now have to keep up with my property, and that of my Mother's and Mother in law's. There will always be those that say "Call Steve, he's retired he has nothing to do." If you can get past all that it is wonderful!
