    Retired early at 61 in 2012 from the truck and automotive repair and parts field. I had held manager positions in parts and service throughout the years. I don't miss the commute or the job one bit. I don't even want to work at it part time. I only work on my own stuff to save money or I wouldn't even do that.

    Wow, this should be the retired Marlin owners forum!!!

    I drive a semi truck for FedEx ground. This one isn't mine, but it's very similar to the one I drive, except we have deer guards on ours. I only pull the doubles occasionally, generally I pull a 53' trailer.
    I really like this job, home every day, (work nights) never touch a package, all drop and hook.

    Retired in 2014 after 30 years working as a Right of Way Agent/Real Estate Specialist for a local county government and now work for free two days a week mucking out stalls and tending horses at a stable a couple of miles from my house. I must say that I find the horses' a**ses in my current office much more pleasant than those in my old office!
