May, 2019. Will be 65 that month.

Thought I would retire last fall but switched to part time until May.

Congratulations to Tycoon and Inmydreams. And have a great week to David Jay and Cyclist.
I sometimes think that I am living the life of which my immigrant ancestors dreamed.

Ok good, let us know your R-date and we'll log you into the 2019 Roll Call Class :happy

Any plans for retirement? How about the Bogleheads Conference in October?

Hi Everyone! Long time lurker here, posting for the first time to join the 2019 retirement roll call! My target last day of work is May 10, and I’ll be 44. My husband is retiring a couple of weeks before me, and will be 52. We have an amazing early retirement plan and I am (literally) counting the days until we are there. We are selling our house and will be traveling the world in an overland truck for the next three-ish years, along with our four year old son and our awesome Rhodesian Ridgeback dog. In our first year we are going up the west coast all the way to Tuktoyaktuk on the Arctic Ocean, and then we’ll ship to Colombia and go all through South America. After that, TBD! It’s going to be an incredible adventure and we could not be more excited for our family retirement adventure. Thanks to this board for years of good financial advice that helped make our retirement dream happen! T minus 117 days....

Hi Vagabondette and welcome to the Bogleheads! and welcome to this very prestigious Retirement Roll Call :D

Now . . . about your retirement plans :shock:

Here is a photo of Tuktoyaktuk - your first goal up the west coast to the Arctic Ocean 8-)

Without question, you will take the prize for the Most Adventurous Boglehead Retirement Plan :beer - even our founding Retirement Roll Call mother, VictoriaF, does not venture out in her outlandish retirement adventures to the Arctic Circle in an overland truck with a Rhodesian Ridgeback (although I will admit, they are awesome dogs and she probably should have had one with her, and no question that 4-year-old sons are awesome kids :D

We share your enthusiasm for this adventurous retirement plan and wish you best of travels with the wind at your back and the open road ahead of you :sharebeer

You have to host the picture somewhere else (your dropbox, imgBB, etc.) and insert the link here.

Hi all! My DW introduced me to this wonderful site nearly three years ago with a simple ‘Here, you might like this’. Ever since I’ve been immersed in reading (and re-reading) posts and wikis on allocation, simplification, tax efficient placement, conversion strategies, withdrawal strategies, and more - simply an amazing wealth of information and all generously shared. I’ve found it to be enormously helpful and reassuring as I moved toward my retirement date. Thank you all!

My last day was January 9th after 34 years with the same firm. Age 56.

JonnyBeRetired - Welcome to the Retirement Roll Call! Yes, finding this wonderful site has been enormously helpful and reassuring for all of us as we move through our financial lives toward retirement :happy We also learn how to trap mice in the attic, cook oatmeal with Dr. Pepper, and whiten our teeth :mrgreen:

Congratulations! That's impressive, 34 years with the same firm. Must give you a good feeling of work well done and now no regrets as you move into the next phase of your life. You're on this Highly Acclaimed Retirement Roll Call - and so far, at age 56, you're our youngest retiree 8-) What are your plans?
