    Retirement

    Weekday hiking is sooo much nicer. I could have and should have done it sooner.

    Best part of retirement is I finally learned how to rotate my profile pic so it's straight up and down.

    My biggest problem with retirement is all the working stiffs still plan everything on the weekend. Most every weekend I am triple booked for some kind of outdoor event, or family gathering, or whatever. I can do my own thing on weekdays, but on weekends there is always a choice to be made and regrets for what I have to miss. I guess it was no different when I was working, but it seems much more noticeable now.

    I got a retirement job that I work only on Saturdays and Sundays. Keeps me from cluttering up trails during those busy times.

    And I get to walk 10-15 miles on a weekend (not much vert unfortunately).

    Now that I don’t have to drive back and forth to work every day, I figured out that I’ll be able to drive my car for the next 40 years or so !!! ��

    I went from driving 30K miles per year (25K commute) to 6K miles per year. If it wasn't for trips to go hiking, that number would be more like 3K!
