  • Where do you want to retire and why?

    The "Where we live.....likes and dislikes" made me think us older guys are probably more into where we will retire. Here is a picture of where I hope my retirement home will be.

    The why is because I won't have close neighbors but they're close enough if I need them (or they need me). My creek has Rainbow and Brook trout in it but I won't fish them. The whitewater rafting river across the Highway from me has Rainbow and Brown trouts which I will fish.

    Depending on the time of year I have cougar, deer, elk, beaver and so on walking through my property (yes I hunt). If I want to take a quad for a ride one of the side loops of the nicest ATV trails in the country runs though my property. Last but not least, the snow rarely gets more than a foot deep and doesn't stay on the ground too long.

      Zeljka,

      Very pretty but what does "My plumber had picke the of covjek at an world" mean? I'm sure the online translator has missed something.

          I've always had multiple places picked out to retire to. But, as I get older, my thoughts lean more toward Prosser, Wa. where I was born and raised and where I learned to be me. It's nothing special if you've never lived there. Not much to do, not much to see. But there is no place like home, Toto. Family is everything. Nothing else matters.

            I want to retire to my nice comfy bed, go to sleep and saw the old bed for 2 days and nights non stop other than to go and drain out now and then and make a nice big deposit too. Maybe then I'll feel good and not be such a growly old *&^%$ anymore.

              I don't think the online translator could do anything with this one.

                  This seems to be the place for me to retire.



                  I think I will be working till I'm in heaven, or somewhere else.

                    For some reason I do understand this.

                      if you really want me to translate it from a plumbers point of view, here we go.

                      he wants to go to bed, snore for 2 days and not wake up except to pee(drain out) and poop(nice big deposit).

                      the rest is self explanatory.

                        Nice box Mark. Looks comfy but does it have all the amenities for eternity?

                        No box for me please.

                        Spread my ashes here on the Severn River just south of Annapolis.


                        This is where I learned to fish, catch crabs, swim and water ski. It holds special memories for me and I can't think of a better place to retire to.

                          Rick has it right. Sleep as much as I can for 2 days and get up now and then to use the toilet and get some water to drink, but otherwise saw (snore) away in bed.

                          Woussko is really looking to when the weather cools off some and I get to take a weekend vacation somewhere out in the mountains or such.


                          Oh wait, I didn't read the thread name correctly. You mean where would I like to spend my final year(s) and not just a day or two. Hmmmmm,,, Now I have to think hard for once.

                            I'd want to retire in Spain. Great weather, love the people and lifestyle. Something in the air is different there. Of course it's very expensive and I'm not spanish and speak very little so it's doubtful this will ever happen. I can dream.
                            Buy cheap, buy twice.
