Default Is 42 years enough?

Finally pulled the trigger and signed the retirement papers monday. Grabbed the early retirement package of a year's pay spread over 5 years, 1/5 every July, right in the middle of fishing season! Fortunately I'll have a nice pension and qualify for SS, too, so I can get Medicare.

Probably a good idea to get out of the school system based off of of your many posts here. Congrats in your retirement.

I'd say 42 yrs is enough. I'm 30 and just recently recieved my 10yr goodies. Extra vacation, stock, etc. I'm thankful for my health, and I'm not rushing retirement, but when it comes, I hope I can sound as happy about it as you. Congradulations.

Congrats and welcome to retirement. I did it ten years ago at fifty two and haven't regretted it. I've worked at what I enjoyed ever since. Right now I'm a dock rat at a marina and love it. I wish you all the health to do what you enjoy. You've earned it.
