Born and raised in West Virginia, Andrew has since lived and traveled around the world several times over. Though frequently writing about politics out of a sense of duty and love of country, most of the time he would prefer discussions on history, culture, occasionally nerding on aviation, and his amateur foodie tendencies. He can usually be found misspelling/misusing words on Twitter @four4thefire.

    This is a problem I see among my retired contemporaries. For so many years, five of seven days each week were planned out by somebody else. Even much of the remaining two days were semi-automatically filled: houses are sinks for time, it was a day when they could go fishing or hiking, etc. Then they hit retirement, and those are not enough, especially as it becomes more difficult to deal with physically demanding things. To quote the retired Denver cop who lives across the street from me, “The good spots for fly fishing are still good, but now that I’m 70 the question is whether I can get to them.”

    Sometimes I wonder if this will be as much of a problem for women as more and more of them will have spent ages 25-45 working full time. I don’t know a big enough sample to have any feeling for it.Report
