Retiring well

My goal is to retire well. In good financial, physical and emotional shape. This turns out to be rather a challenge. But it's time. I'm getting hints from everywhere....

Hi Doug,
Thanks for visiting my blog today. No, Monadnock is NOT on the AT. It is about 70 miles South of the trail.

Hey bro, I mean to stay more active on SP than I am. Like anyone else, LIFE sometimes takes more of our time than we would like and we have trouble doing the things we like or want. Just know that while we may not seem to be around, we still do our best to stay in contact with our friends and encourage them to do well on their journey. Don't lose focus, and keep the faith.

Thanks for reading my blog about walking in the rain. I've been reading several books about hikers on the Appalachian Trail and sometimes they have a lot of rain to deal with while carrying their packs. I'm not ready for that LOL! But a nice gentle rain for a little while is okay.

Hi Doug,

You are a funny guy. Thanks for you nice comments on my fitness minutes. I had been remiss in logging my workouts. I spent a little time today updating my fitness minutes.

Thanks, Bruce
