We are now elderly pensioners...

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

We are now elderly pensioners...

The Big Day has finally come!

We have awaited this day in anticipation, (and maybe a small amount of trepidation ;) ).
Patty and I are officially retired. Ready to begin the next phase in our journey and eagerly looking forward to our next ‘career’ as Post Employment Recreation and Leisure Specialists, with ancillary duties as Inter-Generational Progeny Indulgent Managers.

Wish us well, or envy, or sympathy, or ???

Good for both of you! Not sure that elderly applies, though. Hope you enjoy retirement as much as kathy and I do. talk about indulgence Kathy just decided we had to have a travel trailer big enough for at least 1 grandchild. But it also had to have an outside shower. Guess why?

Retired...... What is this word you use? Is it Greek? It sounds Greek to me.

When I was young, I got in trouble for playing in the mud. In my 20's, I got paid for it.

Ahhh for the good old days when I was 60 and retired. That year I took a really good BP trip to Kid Lakes.

Just finished completing all the required paperwork...hot damn! :D Guess now I am officially old.
Don't really feel any different though...still expecting 3 months of typical Sierra shenanigans just ahead.
See you on the trails!
