I have put in my notice of retirement and I have started the paper work. My retirement date is June 28th 2020 that will be 42yrs to the day with pepsi. Hoping to be able to help out UTK in my retirement in booths, classes or whatever. I would like to learn what needs to be done to get some demo's or put in a after school special in a couple schools in my area plus hoping for several full seasons of trapping.. Maybe even make a beaver brigade.
Let me be the first to congratulate you Neal. About a month after that I’ll be eligible and am running the numbers, my wife’s making me, to see if I can join you. I’ve given up on ever being rich so I want a few years on the tail end of life to be able to do things. I see too many people work past when they could have gone and lose those years with the grand babies.

Congrats...Just don't do what some of us have done by working more than we did working a job. The big difference is I can walk away when I want to do something else like trapping or golf. I can't wait to see your trapping results next year.
On your last day of paid work you are officially put on all your friends list of someone to call when they need free labor, pouring concrete, digging ditches, etc. The night before you plan on heading out for a day fishing your phone will ring from and old buddy needing help. It’s a guarantee!!! .........
