Just retired at 52, 34+ years in Navy, spent many years of that away, cost a marriage and some $$$, children are grown and doing their things. Always dreamed of an African safari but needed a push to do it, in 2000 my dad went to bed one night at 56 and never woke up. That was the big push I needed, been to Africa 3 times (4 safaris) since and just booked for a month in summer of 2020. A hunting wife would be good but think they only exist on TV. Just sold my house and looking for that dream build with 1 large room for a big collection of "memories". Will work again but only doing what I love, with no stress and for my set hours. Life's way to short and nobody knows when its ending. Retire, live, have fun and don't look back. My 2c.
