Dad & I had our annual bannana splits for our birthday today. They were great as usual!

I only have one week left here, going to keep making the best of it. Next year's plan is to stay even longer. Big Grin

Going on 6 months of early retirement, still only regret was not doing it a couple years earlier!

Since retirement I've been meeting up with a group of friends at our local very small Casino for food, drinks & fellowship on Wed. evenings. After being gone for 5 weeks it was good to see all especially one couple. She was so happy that she had early retired a couple weeks ago. While she was always a happy person before retirement. There's just that extra happiness that was beaming last night. Now, her husband is early retiring in a couple weeks. He's happy, but said he's a little nervous. I'm sure he will be fine & was happy to be buying his 1st new vehicle in his life. I'm not much for Fords, but a F450 King Ranch Super Duty sounds pretty nice.

Anyway, continuing on with enjoying early retirement! Big Grin

Translated…You’re a scum bag and a lazy piece of shyt!

His early retirement means this lazy fuc doesn’t want to work anymore, rather continue to milk the system living off of tax payers dollars!

This broke dyck pos who’s boosting about “early retirement” and claims he’s financially set, has nothing but junk for a race car and trailer Laughing very hard which hasn’t been in competition for 2 years because he doesn’t have the money to rebuild it and last year he custom orders the trailer of his dreams for 30 years and backs out of the deal within days of it being delivered to the dealer again because he didn’t have the money and dream trailer 2.0 still hasn’t been ordered 2 years later and never will be! You can’t make this shyt up and only on an Internet message board can a broke dyck who ain’t got nothing, boast about early retirement while he’s been milking the system, living off tax payers $ while scanning the system collecting disability.

The plan was always to retire at 62 & maybe an early retirement at 60 as a nicety. The opportunity presented itself at 59 & I took it. Now, in hindsight my financial advisor (wife) had been advising me to retire 2 years prior to 59.

Getting ready to hopefully haggle a deal on a new 2023 Chevy 3500 High Country Dually this morning. This is going to be a cash buy, not that it will help any.

They do have a used 2022 F450 Super Duty also for a little more money, that we have our eye on also.

Son in law just picked up a 2019 F350 dueally diesel (Loaded ) and i mean loaded with 90K on the dial. One owner. for 57K. Saw the invoice. The guy he bought it off of just went out and purchased 2 brand new duallys cash. He figured better to sell it to an individual instead of the stealership

Hope you are happy with the 3500. I had an 18 Denali 3500 that I liked well enough except some short comings it had like turning radius. But the boss lady didn't like a few things. So we went back to the tried and true F450 again. Cant say I am disappointed in doing so. plus I made a pretty decent sum on the Denali.

Is the turning radius that much better with the Ford? Nice truck BTW!

New truck is being delivered today & then I have to work on the break-in mileage. Chevy as with probably all have a specific break-in period, especially before towing.

6 months in & it gets better every day!

The new truck drives great, but has way too many bells & whistles. I need to put about 350 more miles on it, then I can hook up to the not fit for a skid loader trailer. Then take my junk to the track next weekend! Wink

Yes it is, about 1/2 the distance in an F450 tan other 350 or either Dodge or Chevy 3500's. In this town its handy to be able to make a u turn at an intersection as seems in the newer parts of the city its the only way to get around sometimes Smile Also the smaller parking lots I have no issue just pulling in to park, to 5 point turn required just to park Smile

Lastly resale on all my Fords has been great compared to the two Dodges and one Chevy I have had over the last 30 years. The last couple F450's I have basically lost about 15-20% on the last two. Both were between 150-200K and 7-9 years old. Last one was exactly 9 years old and got $49K for it and paid $59K for it new. I did make money on the Denali but only because it was purchased during covid and from a local farmer who used it only to pull his 5th wheel to camp. He was getting to old and only used it a few times. Garage kept its whole life and it was CHEAP. I sold it during the shortage of one ton trucks because I found a deal on the current F450 at a small town rural dealership in Ohio. So I sold the Denali and pocketed $22K.

FWIW we also have a 2006.5 Cummins Dodge that we will likely never sell. It has 459K on it and we were just offered 19K for it....Crazy these days.

Thanks for the information, Al!

Until now, we've been using my buddies under 60K mile 2004 Dodge dually. It's a night & day difference between the trucks. We have 430 miles on the new one & can't wait to tow with it. As far as the city, we moved out away from that. This truck will be mainly used for towing & very little else.

I was going to work until 65 but after 42 years in manufacturing mostly in engineering I got tired of the new MBA millenials being made managers despite having no clue how to cut, weld, grind, mill, turn, paint, plate, assemble or test new products. I put in for my SS starting April 2020 at age 63, and then the shop I was at closed up in March by order of the King of Ohio. I don't have a million in my 401K so I had to decide to change my lifestyle to fit my income. I don't travel anymore, I only race my footbrake car a few times a year at local tracks. The last vehicle I bought was a 2018 Focus that I didn't need anymore so I gave it to my son. I don't do side work unless it's a family member and I do it for free. I'm single and don't have anyone telling me how to spend my money, I have a monthly budget and have only blown it a couple times, needed new washing machine last summer. It's been 2-1/2 years and I wouldn't go back for any amount of salary.
