Why semi-retirement makes sense to a bunch of 40-year-olds

GetRichSlowly.com, written daily by J.D. Roth in Portland, Ore. is among my favorite blog sites and appears as a separate link on this Web page. I encourage you to read today's posting on RETIREMENT written from the perspective of some 40-year-olds who are actually thinking about the future and what it might be like for them. The concensus from a weekend camping retreat for J.D. and some friends is that semi-retirement makes more sense than full-retirement. But according to J.D., "Though semi-retirement is more realistic than early retirement for most people, it’s still not for the faint of heart. You have to be dedicated and work hard to make it happen," he says "Semi-retirement usually requires ample savings, frugal living, ongoing work, exploration, and a sense of purpose."
I guess I'd agree with all that.
