If you can just get paid to do the thing you're going to do when you retire, why not just go do it?

Well, in my case what I would like to do is what I used to do; teach skiing, raft guide. But, it won't support me, my wife, and two kids in the manner we would like. But, if I do RE, then I will go back to doing that, only I'll be an old fart compared to the kids who are also doing it. But they are living 6 people in a 2 bdr apartment, or a tent in the summer.
