For those of you planning an early retirement through FIRE, what comes after? Relax and travel or a second, more fulfilling career? I just hit some major milestones I set for myself after undergrad and am working to set a new list of goals. I’ve always wanted to “retire” by 40, but curious to see what others have planned once they reach their $$$ goal.

Now that covids ending I realized how much of life there is to enjoy and how badly I want to travel, but with stuff going back in person it’s just making me sad that it might be back to desk life.

I think PGA/LPGA camera operators are very under appreciated. I mean, the skill it takes to spot, zoom in, and track a tiny golf ball flying through the air at 150+mph over and over and from multiple angles is incredible.
