I turn 57 next week and am in a job that gets worse by the day. As I consider the shortness of life and my degrading health, I am seriously thinking of hitting the road. To tell you the truth, it would probably be good for my health, not to mention my mental health, just because I won't spend everyday in front of this computer. One of my life dreams, maybe the only one, is to spend an entire riding season checking out the North American continent. Don't really have much desire to get south of Mexico as the conditions probably won't suit me. I can continue to put money into my 401(k) while I grow older and less likely to ever take my dream trip or do it, and if I need to get a job when I come back, hope that will happen but be prepared to live sparsely for the rest of my life if it doesn't. I think it might be worth it. What say you?
