I’m still hoping to kick one into the end zone :))
I’m hoping to take one day of the week to learn things I haven’t done for years or have not been good at or new task and skills.,
such as carving, wood burning, welding, oil painting, learning SketchUp. Time will tell if this really happens.

Never really sit down and think what are my goals. Maybe I should. I guess I have goals but they are broader long term plans.

Overall I just focus on reducing debt and increasing savings (early retirement my end “goal”). As far as yearly things just do things that I enjoy or want to do…. Often they get put aside as doing things with the family/kids take precedent.

Once my hands are healed enough (carpal tunnel release surgery), I’ll be pulling the engine out of my truck to rebuild it. Truck has 215k miles on it, and it’s using oil. We’ll go camping once that’s done, but the coffee gets heated on the stove in our travel trailer. That backpacking in and out of remote sites is history. The wife can’t walk that far in rugged territory. Neither can I, for that matter.

Also continue to learn new wood carving techniques, and maybe find some time for some coppersmithing. I can’t believe how busy I am cleaning up all the tasks that I let go until I retired. Now that stuff is like a full time job.

BTW, I cleared my cache several times, and the “pulse” page is now behaving itself. Thanks, Cricket!

Build some more shelves in shop. Build bench top rolling stand for my new lathe. Purchase a Robust Scout lathe and learn (teach myself) woodturning. Get more bluegill fishing in this spring.
