Retirement Career

Just the other day I was talking about changing careers, and today I come across this article on CNN about finding a retirement career that you’ll love.  What ‘coinkidink’!  J and I were talking about my decision during our morning run yesterday, and through our conversation I realized that I don’t ever want to retire at age 40 (I would be so bored out of my mind if I had nothing to do and with no structure in my life), but instead work ‘through’ my retirement years doing something I enjoy even if it means downshifting.  J and I are fortunate enough to have saved prodigiously during our working years to permit this kind of opportunity.  Now the hard part is to decide whether I want to be a protection vs. interpretive park ranger.  The future is already looking brighter…

    I didn't realize there were 2 types of park rangers. be the one that will let you run up and down the canyon, or half dome, helping people out (or rescuing them).

    Yeah, I'm trying to figure out which ones those are. They don't seem to fit either description. I just want to hike all day.

    How about Glacier National Park? That place looks beautiful. I'm sure cold, though. Or Zion or Bryce? I'm very envious.
