My Dad is Gone...

Recommended Posts

My Dad is Gone... TO THE CARRIBBEAN!!!

So yeah.

My Pops is all packed up and he's left this frozen Tundra for the

land of golden sunshine and blender drinks. He's 55 and he's starting

a new business and a new life on the Island of Curacao.

And it seems like he's going to be there for good.

All his stuff has either been packed up or passed around to friends

and family, and he hopped a plane this morning. Very exciting!

Well would you come back to a winter like the one we had last year?

And the business will be run out of one of those crazy painted buildings.

Want to see Miss Curacao?

 

I'm going to retire at 25!

 

*edit... I'm going to find the next miss curacao!

I'm currently set in a decent 5 year plan

and I'd hate to cut that short when it's going so well.

I figure that my Pops has about 15 years of working

left in him, so it will have to be before that. I guess

I'm just waiting to hear if he's doing well. Once I know

that I can just drop out of this frozen rat race,

I think my entire attitude will change.

 

anyone seen that commercial for Malibu Rum where

the guys are trying to park their boats like it's North America?

Hard work doesn't make you a better person.

It usually just makes you a bitter person.

Your dad is a lucky man.

 

I've realized that no matter how much I enjoy seeing and experiencing new places, I will eventually have to end up in the caribbean to live. It's just so intrinsic to my blood, I will not be able to ever get away from it. Beer,

i never even knew there were so many islands north of venezuela. Well, that's what you get for working hard. I hope he does well. Some frozen Canadian influence on those slacker warm weather people with no character should be good.

I hear you mams.

There's a calling that we must answer.

If you can make 30k a year down there,

you are part of the wealthy elite. Well you know what?

 

I could survive on a hell of a lot less than that.

As long as I have a house that doesn't leak with a view

of the ocean, a small boat to sail, a beautiful (on the inside too) woman,

and a hammock in the breeze I could be quite happy.

 

and maybe an internet connection.... naw... forget the internet.

As long as it's near the Baths... I'll be very, very happy:

There should be some kind of pre-tirement. I really wanna be able to spend extended periods of time there while I'm still young enough to zestfully enjoy it all (pun intended). However I also want to be able to start a family, and I understand that raising one in the near total seclusion of a tropical island would be rather unhealthy.

 

I wanna do this shit NOW, not after I'm old and my kids are off at college.

where are these baths that you speak of?

 

i agree i want to go now, but it's hard to make a secure future without some hard time done at the beginning. that's why old dudes drive the nice cars and have all the nifty stuff and vacations. i don't wanna be stressing about money when i'm old and can't do shit about it.

 

i wanna work on real estate investing so i can have rental income support me!

The Baths are in Virging Gorda, BVI. I've been there twice and the hidden energy of the place is almost unbearable.

 

And I don't know, I don't see anything particularly exciting about being financially secure ONLY when I lack the vitality and youth to really enjoy it.

 

I need a very small amount of money (relatively) to set up a small shack, a dock, and a 15-hp boat, and fish for a living while I'm old.

oops... sneak caught me.

 

I read this article about the problems that a lot of people have with retirement. They've worked so hard all their lives and had a ton of expenses (kids, cars, college etc.) and by the time they retire, they have no clue how to live. Most people will have about the same amount of disposible income when they retire. The house will be paid for, the savings will be large and they are paying way less taxes, but they are so used to a life of frugality that they don know how to enjoy their time. Now they have the time to live but forget how to enjoy themselves. That's why so many retirees end up doing one cruise a year and doing crosswords the rest of the time. So my point...? Stop trading all your time for money because one day you'll want to trade all your money for time.
