Pretirement: Living the lifestyle of a retired person while still enjoying your day job. I'm 50 and living and playing in NC, USA. My son is self sufficient and off to college. I am single and free. I just bought a van and am selling the house and all the unnecessary material possessions accumulated in it. My hobbies are: having fun, playing guitar, singing, song writing, finishing out the van, selling on craigslist, exercising, eating right, and pursuing the enjoyment of family, friends (and making new friends too).
