Well, if nothing else this is a line of work which would seem pretty resistant to being offshored, so that's certainly an advantage.

Whether or not you make retirement at 62 I can't say...but if you enjoy the work and you remain physically fit enough to perform it, maybe you won't mind being on the job for a few more years after that. FIRE is a great thing, but failing that, the next best thing is a job you enjoy. Little is more demoralizing than a job you hate with no end in sight.
