Our four-year "in the planning stages" dream of retiring early to go "on the road" full-time moved into high gear when God provided early retirement for Paul. In less than five months Paul retired as a manufacturing engineer for Mine Safety Appliances, and I retired as a church ministry administrator. Paul prepared not only our home but his 91 year-old father-in-law's house for market. The houses sold within two weeks of each other and closed within 10 days.
By the end of five months, we had given away or sold everything we owned except for some memorabilia we left with our daughter and her husband. Downsizing has been very freeing for one of us and she highly recommends it! The other isn't convinced, yet.... but he's enjoying the current ride. :)
