The title of this article says it all. As he explains: “Many folks wonder what retirement is “really” like. In my final years of work, I wondered about it a lot. 

To capture my lessons from retirement (and, to help those who wonder what it’s really like), I’ve been writing a series of posts on various milestones in my retirement.  Since my 4th anniversary of retirement is less than a week away, it seems a good time to add my thoughts on the longer-term lessons from retirement to the Retirement Reality Series.”

Fantastic stuff from someone who has lived it and documented it for others to learn from.
