In essence, you've made it and you have an extremely low probability of outliving your money. Do you enjoy your job? Enjoy going to the office/shop each day? Would you also enjoy or even prefer something else? You are in a position to change careers from doing what you do to doing what you love. I know of a mechanical engineer who retired at 48 and became a field research assistant to a geologist. He travels for pleasure (and incidental learning) in winter and during the part of the winter that he's home he does engineering consulting. Come spring he reconnects with a geologist who needs help with summer field work, though there is no budget to pay anyone.

Just one idea.
