I've always had a lot of interests, but as I've grown older there has been more of a desire to narrow my range of activities to those I enjoy the most. This site deals with those activities that go one step beyond that - things I would enjoy doing as a retirement income.
Retirement to me isn't necessarily putting my feet up and doing nothing else the rest of my life. It does mean at least stepping off the corporate treadmill and doing something I truly enjoy, something that can supplement social security and my 401k in 2 or 3 hours of my time per day. I call this "Retirement: phase I".
I turn 62 in 2016, so will reach full retirement age in 2020. My goal is that sometime in the next two years I'll reach "Retirement: Phase I".
