This post is not meant to be political or to create controversy....this is just a question that keeps rolling around in my head. What will retirement look like for us in 15, 20, 25 years and will it even be a possibility?
I read all these great RV blogs about the wonderful adventures that many of you have undertaken and I can't help but be a little envious of what might never be for us.
With the stock market downturn, gas at $5.00 per gallon and the unknown future that lies ahead, I wonder if people who are 50 today will ever be able to actually retire?
I wonder if we will just continue to work until we can't work anymore? I wonder if we will just work until the time we have to move in with our kids (I hope they read this post and make sure to prepare our room...you know, a nice large one, preferably with an ocean view). Or will we just pack up our motorhome and drive off into the sunset, paying $27.00 per gallon for gas and $75.00 per night to boondock at WalMart?
Well no one knows, so we will just keep enjoying life based on what we know today and putting as much as we can away for the future and just hope for the best!
I do hope your week has been great and that your Easter weekend will be blessed!
I have been enjoying visiting blogs and decided to start my own, even though I don't know what I am doing or if anyone will even be interested in reading what I have to say. I am a 50 year old management consultant who has been married to the the love of my life for 30 years and have two grown daughters and a son-in-law who we are very proud of. We are blessed to live in Scottsdale Arizona and are enjoying getting out and experiencing it in our RV! Thanks for stopping by our blog and please consider joining us, who knows where we will go...Kevin & Tracy.
