Retirement: Getting Out of Dodge....
I am retiring in precisely 59 days, but have been thinking about it for years. I am the poster child for indolence... the queen of couch potatoes. There's nothing I like better than a good, brisk sit.
I also know that physically, mentally and emotionally, all that alone time and sedentary activity will take its toll. So, I decided that the only solution is to leave town within 24 hours of retirement, before any bad habits take hold.
I bought a motorhome and took it on a 3-month trial run this past summer. It turns out you CAN live without TV or internet services. So, that's my plan: avoid retirement boredom and anxiety by driving away from them in a hurry.
Has anyone else hit the road right after retirement? I'd be interested in hearing your stories.
Wow... that's a pretty gutsy move! I hope you will post your updates here. It would be fascinating to hear how your retirement journey works out!
I can't tell your gender by your name, but I assume you are a woman (coach potato queen) -- and that makes your travel even gutsier -- assuming you are traveling alone, since you didn't mention anyone else.
Go Girl Go... Enjoy your new Adventures!!
