Pick up the new van early mid year, and spend rest of year working my ring out to try and pay for it...only about 25 more years of work and I might be able to retire

I'm going back to school. I was told when I was young I'd be a loser if I didn't go to university, so I did. Now all my mates who did trades are living the dream and raking in the money and I have a bachelor's and master's in computer science that's not worth a pinch of Shit around here and I'm too old to get an apprenticeship so I'm doing a civil eng degree, so that at least when I'm bitching about the job market I can say I have 2 bachelor's and a master's and I still can't get a decent job.

Thanks Hairs. I’m looking forward to it. I will be spending around a week each month in NZ and Tassie - hopefully that means I’ll get a chance to try out fly fishing.

Hopefully the wife's health will continue to improve, big family reunion in Bendigo in March, wife to have knee replacement ( fingers crossed) and then start some travels, extended trips. Bit like Speewa, travel the cooler months and sit out the summer.
Now for the stars to align.

We are going to finish our remote work we have done for 4 years here at Bidyadanga and semi retire at the end of 2019. Take all my super out, buy a new van and car, deck the car out for what we need , work for 6 to 8 months a year in a different field ( not sure what yet, but will find something ) and travel for 4 months.

Breaking the mould this world locks us into. I've tried to keep things simple and get out and do as much as we can. Been watching and reading your travels Mark. I only hope in 5 years time I have your courage and do something similar.
Wishing you and Penny the best. Keep posting please, you keep many of our dreams alive.

Cheers Glen

Thanks Glen, we are all different with various goals in life. Personally, I would rather sit in an old persons home with 10,000,000 incredible memories rather than having 10,000,000 regrets by not doing a lot of things and then it’s too late. The way we do things is not for everyones cup of tea  ;D but I must say it’s great to see a lot of people slowly taking the plunge and breaking the mould.

I wont be breaking any moulds :(

Work, finish building new house and get it to a place where the yard is useable.......... that'll be 2019 in a nutshell.

Bigger picture besides wanting family to be healthy and happy of course is to keep matching employer super with my own salary sacrifice, create as much wealth as possible for retirement and to buy another property near the beach to either downsize and retire or have as a holiday home. Build a small caravan/hybrid camper.

I only have 15 years to get it done  ???

December 2018 should have finally seen the end of middle age redundancy & work exile, (not that I ever found the time to sit around the house and do nothing).

Have started a new part time gig with an IT services company based in Essendon that I will utilise to open the door to several other part time IT gigs for the next few years till I have my retirement funds.

It’s ok for those of you that have utilised my ‘other services’ I intend to keep them going as they form part of a retirement & travel plan.

Wife is booked in to have both knees done. 
Time to sell our 2015 Bushtracker, originally a 3 year plan so the sad time has come. Bloody good van, we had fun in it and did all we wanted to do.  :'(
Use our camper for some short trips. (Last year we took back our camper trailer from the kids as it appears they prefer a unit on the coast. It was worth a try, wanted them to use it and get their kids out and about and experience this brilliant country.)
Trip to America and Canada towards the end of the year.
And the number one thing, MAKE IT TO THE NEXT NEW YEAR!  ;D
