    I’m going to retire next year, and some of the things I want to do on the regular include working out (I have a home gym), bass fishing, scuba diving, and exploring/camping (and as it relates to Florida specifically, I want to explore the Keys).

    It seems unconscionable that I would get bored doing all that, but I just wonder. Anyone retire with lots of fun activities planned and get bored?

    I have a long list of ladies who want to participate in these activities with me. So, that won’t be boring.

    I just want to enjoy life to the fullest before old age catches up to me, whether it is physical or mental. Neither one is an issue for me at this point.

    I’m not 59 yet, so still full of piss and vinegar and testosterone.

    I also want to island hop in the Bahamas with a kayak. Maybe take a month and skip around. Sounds like a blast. Anybody ever do this? Retired or otherwise?

    I just can’t see downside to any of these activities.

    I also want to travel to SE Asia for fun, sun, diving. Maybe buy an island in the Philippines or Indonesia. Set myself up with a staff of young Asian girls and dive all day.

    Working in corporate America & international is a BEATING! How we manage to make money astounds me.

    Actually, I’m already done, trying to get through the next several months, not screw over my teammates, and carry my part of the load.

    I’ll have accomplished my goal and said goodbye before I retire.

    I’d like to retire to Florida, but y’all aren’t helping me at all. Plenty of questions on the other thread.

    You’d think Floridians would help a guy, but apparently not.

    I guess you are all from the northeast now, and not true southerners. That’s why you aren’t helping.

    I really have zero expectations for any interaction on this site.

    So, another retirement activity that interests me is day trading. I’m thinking about taking something like $50,000 and playing with the market. Does anybody do something similar?

    The question is…is Florida ready for me to be a full time BeachBum in Florida?

    The entire young female population in the state would relocate to my chosen retirement city.
