We've been discussing how we're going to handle our retirement and
since we both don't want to retire, we've come up with the following
When we decide it's time, we're buying a big RV...the kind you live
in. However, instead of driving around like idiots, we're going to
move it four times a year, then park in a long-term grounds. In the
winter, we'll head south; New Mexico, Arizona, etc., in the summer,
we'll head north; Maine, Cape Code, Washington State, Canada, etc.?
While we're parked, I'll take on short-term gigs, 3-4 months. I'll
line up the gig ahead of time, then head out when it's time. OTOH, if
I'm still with EMC, they allow remote working once you've spent the
time to learn the technology, which usualy takes 2-3 years, so I
could continue doing what I'm doing.
