No, this isn’t going to be a post about how we are planning for retirement with regard to finances, 401Ks, pensions and all that boring stuff. This post is going to be about the FUN we are planning on having when we retire.
About a month ago we were riffing about what we were excited to do once we retire. Traveling was near the top of our list. As we continued to talk, we joked about traveling the country in a Winnebago, exploring what this great country has to offer.
And that’s when Denis had a lightbulb moment and came up with a GREAT website domain name for a website we could do based around our travels. This weekend while we were wandering around the BBQ festival in Lexington I flashed back to that conversation and asked him what the name was of the domain he came up with. It took him a minute or two, but then he remembered. And once again we started talking about what retirement could be like if we put our idea into actual practice.
So when we got home from the festival, I bought the domain name.
And I know we’re not retiring for 23-25 years (*fingers crossed*), but there’s no reason we can’t start the site now and let OTHERS who have retired and are actively traveling the country to enjoy what our site has to offer.
I spent time over the weekend at least getting it started, and adding minimal content. But it’ll be quite a while before I actually feel comfortable promoting it in any way. I’m not sure if I like my initial thoughts on how to put it all together, so I’m on the hunt for methods to figure out how to accomplish my initial vision for the site.
If we get it going? It’s going to be AWESOME.
