I didn't mind working, but I always thought that it cut into my free time way too much!
Now I have retired, and have a lot more time to pursue the types of activities, exercise, and adventures that I enjoy. I think you may like them too, which is why I am sharing.
If, as I do, you think there is something quite enjoyable about seeing and exploring new places, you might enjoy the Odd Man Out videos. My goal is typically to find a fun place to exercise, combining travel and some level of adventure.
In March 2021 I bought this Ford Expedition over the internet, with the intention of doing a road trip to bring it home. I bought it sight unseen, with little or no information regarding the condition of the vehicle. This was a high risk purchase, with no end to the ways the trip could have gone bad!
But in the end it worked out well. This video will give you a quick overview of the work I did, the cost relative to the rig I sold, and a summary of how the experience went.
This El Toro is a small sailboat that has been part of my family for ages. Here is a short video showing what the boat is like. There is an organization devoted to this one-design sailboat at: https://www.eltoroyra.org/
I have three backpacks, one which is a little obsolete since I have retired, a large expedition style of backpack, and my go to medium size backpack. All displayed here!
All of the mind numbing detail you might want about the bikes I ride. K2 Mountain bike and Trek road bike.
One of my all-time favorite vehicles. This truck has been my transportation on most of the fun things I have done so far. Here is everything I know about it. (I sold this vehicle in June 2021, and replaced it with the Expedition shown above.)
