Realistically.... not what your dreams are, but based on what you are currently doing financially......... when/at what age do you think you/your spouse will retire?  How do you view your retirement years?  (what do you see your self doing)

Nice!  And what do you view your retirement lifestyle?  Same house?  Down size?  Travel?

Hubs will retire at 65.  Our youngest will have been out of the house for 10 years by then.  We plan on a LOT of travel..... all over the world.  But that is 13 years away and I am ready to start going places NOW.

Yeah..... you have one at home for a while still!

Though, 55 is still on the young side to retire.

Nice that you can retire while kids are still in college.  That wont work for us.  There was simply no way to save enough for kids college, pay off the house, and retire that young.  We live in a high col area.

 My DH will retire in about 5 years when he is 66. Our home and our rental properties will be paid off.  At that point we will have "our guy" look at the numbers to see when I can retire.  I am 13 years younger than DH so I will probably work at least another 5 years.  We will probably travel more often, we only take two or three vacations per year now, volunteer and spend time with family.

So how does that work?  At some point you cant work the farm, so are there multiple families living on the farm?  At some point you need to slow down.... do the kids take over the majority of the work at some point?

Odd question....... but are people buried on the farm?  How big is the farm?

So did you give your kids a choice aobut their career... .or is it simply a given?  What about the cousins?  Do all the kids become farmers?
