I've posted this in the Lounge, as it's bound to get a lot of banter and side issues. We are considering dissolving a LIMITED company, selling up, moving West (Bath, Worcester, Cheltenham - 80 mile circle) and switching from working every day to just when we want to, as a sole trader. My preference would be to move to Scotland, but SWMBO hates being cold. For those who've actually done this in there early 50's a few questions come to mind. Did you find enough to do or did you miss work, at least initially. Is it too much to do all these three together at one time? Sell up, stop work and move. Does vehicle insurance increase for younger retired people (would the insurance company treat me as unemployed)? I've been a West London bloke since my teens, would I find it too quiet/dull by comparison? I know I'm going to love the riding / countryside. What are the local bike meets like and where? We like to travel, so what are the International airport links like from there? Please feel free to flame (me), banter or whatever, after all this is the lounge.
