Every time I come out of my world for a while, I want to move to the center of at least 80 acres. A section would be nicer. Big buffer zone.

 Let's go big Quill, 17 sections, ringed by 105's with a couple of Super Cobra's, armed, fueled and ready to fly, on a pad centered within the property. I'm thinking that we might coax some of Vec's friends to man the weaponry. Better safe than sorry.

You are not alone in that!

Already am.  80 acres.  Got two ponds and a creek cuts through one corner.  Back corner, about 4 acres or so, is pretty hard to get to with a bush hog, so I've been letting it grow back in trees.  Mostly sweet gums, some oaks and some hickories.

Sounds almost perfect.

For me (at this time in my life) though :

- Employment;

- Education; and

- Health care if it is ever needed

are the first priorities.

Never know maybe in 20 or 30 years an opportunity may present itself Huh? Wink Cheesy

Retired military, farming, with a couple of part time jobs/hobbies.  Never married, so no extra expenses.  Except for the dogs.

High School, some college, continuing in areas that interest me. 

Health care is from being retired military.  Dental I have to pay for.

Screw waiting 20 or 30 years, I'll be too decrepit to do anything fun.

 Retirement is good. After you've paid into your required Social Security Quarters and hopefully are able to collect a second retirement check from other employment, you've fulfilled your responsibilities as a responsible American citizen. If it suites you and it does me, sometimes when asked what I do, I don't mind saying "as little as possible." I'm almost 70 years old and paid into SS for 40 years. Lord willing, U.T. and S.S. will just keep the checks coming. You earn them.

Good advice, change is unavoidable and often unpredictable, but for now I can't imagine not not working.

My father mostly worked 7 days per week, as did I.

I now don't go to the office most weekends.

On weekends it's grandchild minding or helping friends / family with trade work etc.

Of course no one's health lasts forever so we'll see.

We all come up with our own solution, for me it's work (which provides financial security), family & friends that take priority.

Working in the commercial world keeps me engaged (especially with people younger than myself), technologically up to date and is inflation proof.

I'd prefer more physical work but it generally doesn't pay as well.

To each his own, your place sounds idyllic
