18 years old today

My SMB is 18 years old today. I picked up Railvan on this day in 2006 at the Fresno Sportsmobile factory.

I also retired today.

So, I am retired, and have a Sportsmobile. What should I do next? :^)

Congratulations! Hope I can retire someday. That’d be neat.

I’d start by only logging on here when in dire need and start exploring!

I retired last year. As I tell my wife.. "I served out my sentence". It's a big change, kind of disorienting at first. Enjoy your retirement.

Congrats on the retirement, I hit that milestone a little under two years ago.

Congratulations, time to travel. It’s a bit muddy to do much in BC, but it’s the perfect time to explore all the desert has to offer. I expect to head out soon, care to join me?

Yes, I hope to hit the deserts and BC too, when it dries out. I have a trip planned in April to the southwest, and the timing is planned around a group so that is fixed. But I'll be in touch now that that pesky work thing is behind me!

Heck yeah! Congrats!

Year 19 on my rig although my 3rd owner purchase was 2010. Seems like I could still sell my rig for what I paid for it if not more.
