    I will retire (again) two weeks from today. To practice being retired, I took the day off. I have next Friday off as well and then a sick day the next week for doctor appointments. Doing the math, I have 8 work days remaining. Once I retire, as long as my new truck shell has arrived and been installed, my wife and I will take the travel trailer to Wyoming for 5-6 weeks.

    Here I am looking forward to just my first retirement, someday. Hope the shell is installed and the road is good to you, bigbill.

    Sort of the opposite of retirement: It's summer intern season. We lucked out with some great interns this summer. It has been a lot of fun to watch them develop into contributing team members. If this group is any indication, Gen-Z is going to be just fine.

    Same observation at my workplace. Very impressed by the current cohort of 20-somethings. Hard working, pleasant to work with, and just plain fun to be around. The standout, rising-college senior interns will be heading back to school at the end of the summer with job offers for June 2023.

    I had a new engineer shadowing me all week. My company has a program where they hire new grads then have them spend a week at each type of facility. I think he was a good guy. His family immigrated from Pakistan and he graduated from Purdue with mech e degree. He is Muslim and I know a local family that runs a business in the airport that are very active in the local Muslim community (one Mosque). I introduced him and he's spending his last afternoon at the Mosque getting a feel for the community. A job is 8 hours a day, community is 24/7.

    Bravo Zulu Bill. I can't wait to follow you (into retirement, not WY, although, I often think about NW AZ anywhere between Prescott and Payson as I love the MTB trails in that area)

    I pushed retirement back a month because a project popped up and it's a great opportunity to train my replacement on something they've never done. So I'm at 3.75 months instead of 2.75 months and the company packed 7 days of suck into 4 this week. Big whoop. I can see the horizon with that and tomorrow I'm getting on my bike and chasing the real horizon. Everything is going to be fine.

    I was in Flagstaff last weekend to do some riding at Fort Tuthill. Luke AFB has a recreational area there with cabins, family A-frames, campsites, and RV spots with power and water. I can ride the trails for hours in any direction from the rec area. It's not super cheap, but far cheaper than most other lodging in Flag. As a bonus, Garro is only a few miles away down a trail so you can stop by and order a custom Coconino. I was in Payson about a month ago, it's very dry and dusty. Prescott is good plus they have the VA Hospital for northern AZ.

    thanks- good to know on the cabins. Last time I went to Flagstaff was with a high school buddy and we rented a tiny place near the historic area. I shouldn't have implied there are good trails in Payson (but maybe there are), but it was the closest town to the area I rode. The trail I like is a bit east of Payson, 260 trailhead --nicely forested trail. listed as highline trail #31 on mtbproject. Whenever I pass that way I stop to ride the 1st 5-10 miles and then turn around. Someday I hope to plan it better and have cooler temp, more time, be in better shape, and try the whole thing.

    It's really my third. I retired from the Navy in 2012 and was hired as an engineer at Kimberly-Clark. In 2018, after my son received an appointment to USNA, I took a severance to leave that summer. Kimberly-Clark lists me as retired so I still get offers for products as if I was still an employee. I was recruited for an engineering manager position in Arizona which began in late July of 2018. My son graduated from USNA a few months ago and began his Marine career. I have enough pension income and a decent IRA, it's time to just enjoy life with my wife.

    Our daughter returned from two months boating in British Columbia with three other young women this week. I had company meetings in Seattle until Wednesday so my wife joined me and timing was perfect for us to drive to Lopez Island in the San Juanís for a big party with friends and families.
    The women plan to make a documentary from the footage they took as a senior project for one of the girls. They are all 22-23 years old. https://instagram.com/capimovie?igshid=YmMyMTA2M2Y=
