Cruise to the Caribbean on NCL Epic - January 2024

After returning from my cruise to Alaska, I was hooked. I wasn’t sure about cruising to the Caribbean, but I thought it was a warm place to go and get out of the Idaho winter.

Retirement

Early Retirement Decision

Last month I decided to do what most people said couldn’t be done. As an aside, what great motivation proving people wrong is. I decided to retire early. Retirement is an interesting word for me because when I tell people I’m retired I feel the need to explain to them what retirement means to me. Retirement doesn’t mean that I’ll never work again, it means that I don’t have to work for income....
