Yes that's good advice jim. I just don't know exactly what. I have a nice cushion of money but definitely not enough to retire on yet. I've myself working in my own little tinkerers shop inventing new gadgets and design new products. Maybe enough to invent and get patents. I would obviously work for myself with no time pressure and stress. Also I'd do some art work as well. I just need to somehow get started. Need to buy equipment. It'd be a hobby but if I can make a bit of money all the better. I'm just the type who works so much better really thinking things through and deeply rather than do the high stress corporate rat race. Last job was like that, although I wouldn't have called my prior engineering jobs "high stress". Not at all. Pace was very good for the most part.

Let me tell you about the guy who owns this RV park I'm in at the moment. Maybe it'll spark an idea.

Mostly his wife runs the RV park. He does some maintenance and pumps propane.
