Gen y speaking up and what really suck is that we asked why and the result was to be converted into a millennial or called a dinosaur in your late 20s early 30s. At 37, I'm enjoying my retirement and maybe one day, after tshtf I'll use my college education and start a school, until then, I fix jeeps, real jeeps like xj, zj, and if we can ever get this damn mj going.

37 and using the word retirement. Kudos! (You make me look like a piker/idiot for not getting out until age 48, and I considered that success (for me)).

So is this retirement getting out of the corporate (or just hated) 9-5? Or is it getting to do what you want (i.e. fixing real jeeps) for your income, instead of having to answer to "the man"?

Just curious, as the words retirement and 37 are very rare when used together in the US, unless it's along with some investment hype scheme in some financial channel "article" (or making assumptions about income and expenses (like medical) that aren't what my scaredy-cat butt would consider a "secure" retirement).

Again, congrats -- whatever your definition of successful retirement might be.
