Aha! Flexibility is being required. Sounds like you've got a good plan....a new one.

Almost any new plan is better than an old plan. But for me I prefer no plan whenever possible. To me a plan sounds like everything is figured out and written in stone but it almost never works out that way because things change as soon as you start using your plan. To quote ex-heavyweight champion boxer Mike Tyson, when a reporter asked him if he was worried about his opponents plan to defeat him he said.... "Everybody's got a plan until they get punched in the mouth".

During our working years we had to plan everything so we could get things done. After retirement we don't plan as much but make list of things to do that get largely ignored. In our family we say that all plans are made in jello.............

Agreed. When you're working, raising a family, and paying the bills, there's no way to avoid planning, life would be chaos without it. But as a retired Full-timer life can be as planned and scheduled out just as much as your working life was, or you can be as free as you want to be.

During our full time traveling years I was a cross between you and your daughter. I gathered and sorted tons of data about places to go and things to do. But for travel itself we just winged it since we never knew how long anything would take along the way. I've been known to pull into a Walmart or Cracker Barrel parking lot and call them from there to ask if I can stay the night.

Now that's my kind of camping! Gathering up tons of data to determine where you would like to go and things you want to see does not come under my definition of planning, I call it research and it's perfectly acceptable to me. It's when dates are picked and scheduling is made that I have problems with. I've had deadlines and schedules all of my life.... I didn't like them then, and I don't like them now.
