How to Live the RV Retirement Lifestyle is really not much different the say living in a retirement community. There are a few things that you will need to make adjustments for, however. Then when you retire, who needs to rush?
It is never too soon to start planning for your retirement. I tell my boys who are 20, 17, and 11, start planning your retirement now because before you know it, its time. Something your financial advisors will tell you as well. Also, some advice my father told me and I wish I had listened.
My retirement is still about 6 years away. Now I know what you are saying. Thats a long time. But considering some people will start working right out of high school, thats 35 years ago for me, the next 6 years will fly by. Heck, my oldest son is now 20? Where did that time go?
You Are Doing What?
The closer you get to your retirement people will begin to ask, “What are you going to do when you retire?” Everyone has different answers. I have been a firefighter for over 30 years now, some 10 as a volunteer and 20 as a career. My first answer will if you know any firefighters, is I will miss the job. Not everyone can say that.
Then I give them the answer that my girlfriend and I are going to live the RV retirement lifestyle. I then get the response from people “You are doing WHAT?” I laugh and tell them, why not. I have worked all these years and have not had the time to see the country, I’m doing it.
