Joe from Retireby40.org and Baby RB40 meet up with Pretired Nick and Pretired Baby at a Seattle park.

Today I had the honor of meeting one of my heroes: Joe Udo from Retireby40.org and of course Baby RB40 (not really a baby anymore). Joe was up on a weekend trip from Portland and was gracious enough to offer to get together. We met up at a park in Seattle to introduce ourselves in person and for me to squeal with glee as I met the person most influential to me in deciding to begin writing about my own pretirement journey.

Joe was writing about his plans to leave his soul-sucking day job just as I was contemplating my own escape from my own soul-sucking day job. I coincidentally ended up leaving my job just a few months before he did. Now we are both enjoying our lives as stay-at-home dads.

If you haven’t already checked out Retireby40, go there RIGHT NOW and fill yourself with the inspiration to leave your own day job and get started with your pretirement!

  1. This is nice! I like the idea to meet together. Really. May we should plan some sort of potluck or so and meet in person! This is really cool!

      I’m definitely up for meeting. Where do you live?

      • I live in Colorado, Vail (actually near by Vail, since Vail is even more expensive for living than the place I live), so if you be traveling east, definitely let me know. We can do something (and vice verse). We will be traveling to California in two weeks to Disneyland (in case you want to take kids to a park, 😉 )

  2. Super cool! My favorite part of the whole blogging thing is connecting with like minded people. Look me up if you ever make it down to Colorado and I’d like to look you up when we make it up to Jet City.

      No question about it, Mr. 1500! I love Colorado but haven’t been there in ages. If and when we drift through, I’ll be sure to ping you.

  3. I am so jealous of this meetup! :)
