this good earth.
We were having this discussion at work last night while sitting around.
What are some things you haven't done or achieved, that are realistic in nature, obtainable, that you'd like to achieve before your time is up on this rock. There may be multiple reasons (or excuses) as to why you haven't been able to accomplish them - got married, raised a family, never had the time or money, whatever. But it is a goal or "dream". It doesn't have to be something grandiose, but simply something you'd like to do.
My wife and are reaching our mid-50s and working for retirement within the decade. I have no regrets - life is what you make of it. And my objectives are pretty simple. Always have been. I'm a simple man. When I was younger, I had the opportunity to travel. I've been up and down the entire east coast from Maine to Florida. I lived overseas for two years in Spain. And I've seen the Midwest. But the farthest west I've ever been is Omaha, Nebraska. I want to travel with my wife out west. I want to see landmarks like the Grand Canyon and so many other great places that I've only been able to read about, or see on some documentary on TV. I want to travel through all the western and southwestern states, and take it all in, in my RV. Take my time and enjoy it all.
I had a buddy (coworker) who retired just over a year ago (he was 62), and he and his wife are doing just that. He sold both his homes, and most of his holdings, bought an RV several years ago (nice one too), and all they do is travel. They move all around the country staying in one local for maybe several months, and then move on to wherever they desire.
I want to travel and see this country.
