Move to South Carolina on the beach and become a starter/marshal for a golf course.

Yeah. I see dog parks all the time where they are running around the owners are throwing frisbees, etc. I'm going to do the same, but just have an outdoor cat park for people to go and also have some beers while they relax outside.

Make sure the fire department is there when a cat won't come down from a tree.

Already doing the retirement thing but, I'd love to watch the chaos of a cat park. Even more, would love to watch
someone teaching a cat to play frisbee.

I don't really have any expectation to retire

I'll probably just move to 3 day weeks and a pay cut to stay busy

i thought the same. I heard allot of people work most of their lives, retire and not have much to do and then die after.

If i decide to change my mind. Id buy a house in the high desert with a acre or so of land, make a go kart track in the backyard and open it to locals and charge 10.00 to use it. Race til dinner was made. Host drift sessions on Fridays.

Gives you something to do, free golf because you're an employee and you basically just sit in a cart and sip coffee and bullshit with players before they head out

And put up no trespassing signs so you don't need insurance.
When the ambulance and police show up tell them "Get these damn kids off my lawn".

Travel, trade, road trips on the motorcycle, maybe move to the beach, help my friend out with his business (Racing Porsche's), hit the gym everyday.

I'd like to take a gap year in about 5 years to do a test run. Sell the house buy a small RV. Travel and Trade full time to see if I can make it a reality.

Entertain.

Hope to have a place that’s worth visiting where people will come and stay with us and enjoy life.

Shitty months of the year I’ll be on a beach somewhere.

that is basically retirement, imo. Do something you enjoy, relax etc. Doing nothing is a death sentence.
