But you're here, so you must have an interest in an all molded towable, so it's ALL GOOD. (she says as she runs off to check out Rob's photography website).

First life - 14 years law enforcement.
Present life - research librarian at a law firm.

Retirement? Too darn far away.

I'm retired from my 'real' job as a computer systems engineer and applications admin. I now do some part time handy work to help pay for gas to travel. My wife just retired last fall so we're doing more traveling together now. We are considering working in Yellowstone next summer and staying in our Scamp.

I do a little flyfishing, fly tying, hiking, and guitar playing. I also like to look for rocks. My email is agatepicker.

That's not my real picture on my avatar, but it reflects my personality.

I'm long retired (2002) from a career at SUNY Oswego (a NY state college) teaching technical theatre. Designed sound & special effects for about 150 productions, maintained the electronics for the theatre, theatre photography, and taught courses in everything from sound design to welding.

Very rewarding, lots of fun, but the state made me a retirement offer I couldn't pass up.

Of course, being the photographer, no pictures of me!

Donna, thanks for renewing this thread. Very interesting, but did I miss your occupation posting?
I seem to reinvent myself every 10-15 years. '75 to '90 Back-to-Land homesteader/home schooler; '90-'96 microbiology student/research/teaching assistant; '97-'09 research and development, biotech industry; '09-'14 early "retirement", volunteering.
Even though only 5 years into the current instar, I'm feeling restless. Considering either re-entering workforce or entering full time RV life. I miss the science, but not the corporate pressure.
My son once complained about the amount of time I spent in my research lab, saying "it's not like you're doing something that's never been done before!" Um, yeah, actually that's the point. That's when I knew I wasn't communicating well enough with him.

Well, I'm a fairly long term member (since 2005) but I never posted in this thread !! As chatty as I can be, I don't know how I missed this opportunity

I work as a Tenant Coordinator for a Mall Developer in Michigan. I follow up on Tenants (future stores) and review their drawings, pester them to get building the store, and overall try to help them open as soon as possible. High stress, and some travel time also. I long for retirement, but it is not in the near future.
In my spare time, I CAMP!!

Good idea Donna. I hadn't seen this thread before. I am a retired game warden, 38+ years. Still work a little part time for my local sheriff's dept. Currently a member of my local volunteer ambulance crew (EMT). Member of Lions International. If you have a club in your town I highly recommend it. You can visit other clubs when on camping trips around the country. I went to two club meetings in Texas when I was down there. If was fun trading stories and ideas for projects to bring back.
