Moving On!

1 Comment

IMG_4117I’m moving on.  I’ve had a good time blogging about retirement over the last few years.  I like to think I’ve helped a few people making the decision to retire and offered some good advice, even if I don’t always follow it myself.  As I’ve said, retirement isn’t the end, it’s the beginning.  I’ve transitioned completely into a comfortable groove and I was running out of sage advice.  So, I’m no longer going to update this blog.  I will however be consolidating all my blogging activity on my main blog, Fly Fish Nevada.

This blog will remain up until WordPress pries it from my cold, dead ha…OK, maybe that’s a little dramatic but you get the idea.  I will likely begin a blog to detail our transition from a stick house to an RV but that’s a few years off.  In the meantime, I will be blogging over at Fly Fish Nevada.   Not just about fishing either.  I’ll probably throw out the occasional retirement post, posts about life in general, whatever.  I hope you join me over there.  If you’ve found this blog for the first time, feel free to browse and read what’s here.  It’s still applicable.

Thanks for reading.



Building the Otter

For those that are regular readers, or just stumbled across this blog, but have never ventured over the my other blog, Fly Fish Nevada, now would be a good time.  I built a little boat called the Otter several years back and logged the build on my old website.  I have finally finished transferring all the photos and text to my blog.  You can find the page here or click the Fly Fish Nevada logo and then click the tab at the top of the page labeled “The Otter”.  It is an enjoyable read, I am told, and it’s really a neat little endeavor.  I encourage you to click on over and check it out.

Some Thoughts


This blog was mentioned on an apparently much more popular blog last week called “Retirement:  A Full-time Job”.  I was cited again this week.  I noticed because my hits went from the low single digits to almost 200 per day.  Wow!  Thanks!  I am glad someone is reading this.  Too many people are caught up in the day-to-day grind to really plan their retirement beyond the financial or just don’t know when it’s time to pull the trigger.  Hopefully, some of the readers will continue reading this blog.

I just got back from a fishing trip to Dunsmuir, California.  I had a great time.  You can read about it here and here at my other blog, Fly Fish Nevada.  The one thing that stuck out retirement-wise was More
