Off-course retirement

I don't have enough savings in my 401K to have a golf-course retirement. Not that I'd want that, but there's not even enough for a single room hotel retirement. Mine will be an off-course retirement.

Recently when I opened up my statement and there was barely anything in there, thanks to the meltdown that now I'm bailing out (something wrong with this picture), I knew that there never would be. The system is rigged.

So now it's time to start making alternative plans. I'm going to be very poor late in life, but I know it doesn't have to be bad because I've hiked the trail. Nature is beautiful. I can live there half the year and somewhere very cheap the other half.

It'll work out.

    You can't count on money. It's not real and anything it buys can be taken away from you. I value wealth by how much time a person has and how few possessions they can possess.
