Doing my own garden, more fishing, hunting and cutting back or cutting out some of my more expensive luxury foods.
Reducing the retirement fund :)) (after I've retired of course) :))

It does add up when you put it all together.

Of, having all the children out of the house doesn't hurt either :))
Will be a little better when I hit 59 1/2 when I can start drawing div payments from the IRA.
Debt free, mortgage free my expenses are general living, running a 4 x 4 and livery on the farm for my ponies. Live a very quite life these days.

Your forum has definately given me lots to think about, how I can make this happen for real. It has been really lovely to share your experience.
I already know how I want to spend my days :)

If not, well, find a friend with a trailer.

A lot of our trails are pretty moutainous, so your horse had better be able to deal with that kind of terrain.

Here is Mac and a friend out riding last fall.
