    Your ideal Retirement Location

    Not that I'm nearing that age but if you had a choice -where would you prefer to retire?

    Im after a possie with clean surf





    Clear rivers and steep bits of dirt



    With Deer


    Within the context of a lil preamble down the road of life has anyone else an ideal possie for your kick back and relax/hunt years ?

    I'm going to Uruguay, with regular trips back to NZ and Patagonia for hunting, and trips to various South American beaches for.. sightseeing...
    Got it all figured out, only 34 more years to go!

    Going by family history there wont be a lot of point for me. Be a massive stroke in my early 70's and be a vegetable for another 4-5 years. Other than that somewhere where I can throw a line in the water and if still mobile where I can hit the hills with a bang stick. Probably round the top half of the south.

    I have a wanderlust to fulfill. When the time comes I will sell up, invest in a luxurious camper, travel the country and wake up to a different view as many times a year as my heart desires. Expect some visits fellahs.

    What more do we need? If we are above ground and breathing the rest is up to us!
    Rule 1: Treat every firearm as loaded
    Rule 2: Always point firearms in a safe direction
    Rule 3: Load a firearm only when ready to fire
    Rule 4: Identify your target beyond all doubt
    Rule 5: Check your firing zone
    Rule 6: Store firearms and ammunition safely
    Rule 7: Avoid alcohol and drugs when handling firearms

    Mate it will change as you get to retirement age, which is a curse in itself, I've just finally put a down hill descend into gear, an exit plan, an old age, bugger it plan! I'm putting a plan on getting out of my business, any takers with cash welcome, I'll stay where I am and enjoy Kinloch on the odd weekend. Of course I'm only 66 so this is at least a 4 yr plan. Always thought I'd do what Rushy is planning, now I can't think of anything worse, for me. Anyway gotta get on with painting my house inside, putting down tiles, and back filling my new retaining wall I've just built, I need to get my shit together and finish my MGA and start on my 1932 Wolseley Hornet and get my sons Austin Healey Sprite on the road so it's out of my shed! I've then got the hunting, shooting and collecting to keep up with! I also need to maintain a good cash flow to afford these toys! Make it a 10 yr plan, fcuk it needs to slow down sometime, did I mention my 7am to 5 pm work day! Hope my health holds out or ill be really slutted!

    I am pretty keen on living somewhere in the marborough sounds.

    But I will most likely retire where I live now. Hunting and fishing is too good.

    I reckon we're actually in a pretty good spot here Andrew. The Hawkes Bay has a lot to offer those keen on the outdoors. We moved here from Welly 8 yrs ago for lifestyle, weather and semi-retirement. I certainly havnt regretted it. I'm 44.
