Lots of this country we have not seen and it's about time.
    Good for you Sparky, congrats on the retirement this year..
    As for me, retirement has been the most boring time of my life!!!
    All the time in the world but $$ keeps shrinking with economy.
    May I suggest you keep your tools handy. Or take up a sport or hobby that you love...

    Bored outta my gourd sometimes, especially when I can't get out on the X. At other times, I feel like I had more time to do things when I worked full time. Congrats Sparky on your coming retirement -- your initial plan sounds pretty good. And Frank: I know how you feel.

    Naaaa, you'll have fun getting out on the road. You'll probably settle in somewhere in the middle between somebody always upset and the other end of the spectrum like Commodore Epiphysis (Jeff)

    I think it's awesome.... you could finance your retirement travels on maintenance contracts, and sub the contracts out to a trusted colleague. Congrats on your upcoming retirement, I would retire but when I think about it, my wallet just laughs and laughs....

    I bought this at a local electronics store. I'm sure you can likely find such a critter at Radio Shack?

    I've been all over this county fit two days now, and no one has anything like this. If I sent you cash, could you gab one and mail it?

    How about just buying a DC voltage convertor online. Do a google search for this and you will find various options. Some of them are called "Buck Convertors". Here is one link: https://www.amazon.com/Autek-Convert.../dp/B00BMJXVVS
