I just checked the webcam at Big Meadows, on Skyline Dr. Va, it looks like a small army out on the meadow trails, am I the only one left working, (or supposed to be working)..I know, my jealousy is showing.

It sure seems like it!! We got back from Yellowstone a couple weeks ago and it was as crowded as summer. Okay, maybe not that bad, but not very far off.

We usually go in the spring before school is out, or in the fall after school starts to avoid the crowds. Sure didn't work this year.

As a Social Security recipient I would like to thank you for your support ie. paying into SSA!
Retirement is wonderful IF: your health is good and you can pay the bills.
Those that don't meet one or more of the above criteria don't think much of those supposed Golden Years.
Just remembered that the Boomers are starting to retire so `it may get worse'!

WE ARE RETIRED!!!! WE WILL NOW SELL OUR RV!!! My wife and I worked the last 10 yrs using a rv and now do not want to see another campsite or motel and will never leave the US again!! No more airplanes no more going out to eat!!! Now we have a garden and yard and no more kids (ya ya they still borrow and still are around) We do like living in a small town in Minnesota with all 4 seasons not just sand and 8 lane highways. We did love the life style but we did it when we could still enjoy it and all that Ca. had to offer. We will miss the Delta and all those ocean side campgrounds and 4lb. crab and the oysters from the farms and of course the evening cocktail partys in Palm Springs. Yeppers rv life was great but glad we did it when we were young!!! good luck to you all that waited!! rvtommy and rvbarbara

More now than in the future with functional retirement age going to 75 for more and more of us.

I waited until I was 52 before retiring.
Had I known what fun it was - would have started sooner.

I had a higher lifestyle back when I was working. Frankly, I miss my job(I had a perfect job). In fact, I don't recall having a job task that I didn't like.
And, the businesses that I have owned where of my own choosing.

We camp in Luray, Skyline has been super crowded. Trying to find a parking spot to hike the trails has been almost impossible. Going to get worse as the leaves change.

At 62, guess I could be retired, but feel I need to work another 3 to 4 yrs to make things work out before retiring...So, at this time, I'm working

Figure that we 'baby boomers' are starting to retire--some early--and that will swell the ranks of the RVing community. I have also noticed a lot more autumn campers than there used to be. September just as busy as summer and October very active, as well.
