    Get a life outside the job and don’t let this happen to you.

    The current plan goes something like this.

    I have been retired 16 years next month, and the only thing I can't figure out?
    How did I ever have time to work?
    Currently, I write for a couple of magazines; I'm President of a 501c3 working on getting a shooting range in the N'atl Forest
    Help my wife teach women to shoot; We started an IPSC shooting club, still going strong
    Teach men to shoot; Catch up on my reading
    Compete in various pistol & rifle matches Working on a book - a funny look at life as a Fed.
    Cut and split wood to keep the place warm all winter
    Etc. Etc.

    The key is having friends outside of the job. Many of mine are ex-military (they would not take me, too deaf in one ear). They share many of our values.

    I just switched to a new retirement plan so I have a good 20 years to decide that. Before I left my old agency we had an old crusty retire and he was almost in tears talking about not being a cop after 30 years. That spooked me a ton and got me to thinking if I would ever be happy doing anything else. I can say I probably wouldn't, but at the same time the soul can only take so much burden and 20-30 years is probably more than enough. I really don't care what I do once I hang it up. All I ask is a nice quiet life in the country with friends and family nearby, otherwise I'll be miserable.

    Forced into retirement 8 years ago. I immediately joined our Reserve Div. Other than that I work on/play with hot rods while waiting for the wife to retire. When she does, we'll hopefully be travelling, doing the retiree/motor home thing...... Oh, being retired I also have my Rights back!

    Sounds like it is time to "de-stress by living as a hermit at the cabin my family owns in the Texas hill country" (thanks Lady Blue )

    I retired a year ago. My wife went back to work. I have had a few job offers in security but I don't want to confront people anymore. I had enough of fighting/arguing/telling people no. I get enough of that from my wife and kids. lol. I'll find something eventually.

    I can pull the pin in just over two years, and I will either double dip or put my degree (culinary arts) to use. Whatever I do, I plan to take the first month or so and de-stress by living as a hermit at the cabin my family owns in the Texas hill country.

    Yup

    Why? Not too sure I will be able to join the Explorers though - time, and the amount I will be able dedicate, is an issue

I've got plenty of things to do when I retire. People who don't have any interests or hobbies retire and die.
    Why the ESL teaching? To me, that would suck.....why do you find it appealing?

    Will have about 6 rental props, that will let me kick back and fish, hike and hang out with family while collecting the retirement.
