When we went to the Arlington Skyfest show this year it ignited our interest in attending the Albuquerque Balloon Festival. We have been looking forward to taking our 1975 GMC Motorhome Eleganza 2 and camping onsite to enjoy the festivities. While retirement is in the near future, we decided we didn’t want to wait to have the time to drive there and stay and drive back, we want to go NOW.
We have booked a hotel near Balloon Festival Park and are busy planning activities beyond the festival itself. While we are in Albuquerque we are looking forward to checking out their section of Route 66. The list of trips we want to take when we retire is endless, including driving the entire route in the RV. I don’t want to keep putting things off until ‘someday’.
I started writing this blog as a way for us to creatively countdown to his retirement. He has been working there for over 42 years and we’ve gone from over 1700 days to under 600 since I started writing. While the end game for post retirement continues to evolve, our desire to ‘live like you are dying’ has amped up in the last few months. We are looking forward to new adventures pre and post retirement, even things as simple as visiting a Buc-ees! Thank you for coming along for the ride and ‘liking’ our journey.
