I retired on Sept 2003 by selling my business to a great bunch of guys. I was incapable to sit around, I don't golf, so off I went and started doing some simple stuff... like countertops. In the past 5 years that has become yet another full-time 4 man operation. April 30, 2010 and I'm outta here. *WBAG* Their cheque cleared.. A couple of young bucks, one a 14-year veteran of a missionary station in the Venezuelan jungle, the other a nice compliment to what it is I have tried to do all along. Straight-up deals, quality products. I get to stay on as the " the guy who is supposed to know what he is doing" for a year, during which time I will be building a place for my cnc's as that is where I am heading next.... and I really, really, really want a nice high-performance spray booth.
New challenges.

Maybe you'll have time to drop by for that beer. But, I'm not holding my breath.

Well, there is good news and their is bad news.
First the good news. You are obviously a proficient entreprenuer. You are not a bum. You collect tools and know how to use them. You create jobs in the community. And you never stop learning. These are all good things.
And now the bad news.
You are a total abject failure as a retiree. You will never conform well to the rocking chair and oatmeal routine. And you make all kinds of guys look bad by comparison.

No, the bad news is while the cncs are running he'll have time to think up something else to do.

I was counting as well. I had a little over 1000 days left... then the company I work for made an offer I couldn't refuse. I retired as of April 15th. I'm loving it!

Congrats!! A lot of my colleagues from the Power Company days have retired at 55 and/or took packages and many got rehired as consultants with very lucrative contracts.
There is so much living to do...and when you run out, you're dead. (Pretty wise stuff for a Canuck, eh?)

The company I just retired from is putting in a new fiber optic line between Buffalo, NY and Erie, PA. The job is supposed to start sometime this month. The engineering firm doing the prelinimary layout work has already asked me if I might be interested in overseeing the job. I told them I doubt it, but make me an offer.

I was ~800 days over (30 years) when they gave me a package I couldn't refuse. That was November '06. Too young (54) to really retire, though, so did a contracting gig, then found a real job (a lot more fun, too) that I plan on keeping for another five or ten years while I add toys. ...maybe even a Fester, soon.

Good luck Rob, I hope it turns out well for you.
I am thinking myself that I have one more company left in me, but I am still searching for something I want to get involved in....
Good for you that you still challenge yourself. Most of my amigos seem too old, too tired, and too lazy to break their patterns.
I find I like little better than the test of an honest challenge. Especially to myself!
