    Public Employee, I'm 49 and figure at least 15 more yrs cause I need health ins. and SS isn't available to suppliment my meager retirement till 59&1/2. Man I wish somebody had wised me up in my youth to go get a public sector job.

    If that is referring to me, you are oh so wrong. I am privately owned.

    Don't need a public sector job to retire before 60. My uncle retired at 55 and I could have too if my 21+ year job wasn't wiped out by a merger. Still plan to do it when I'm 62 but 55 would have been nicer! Early planning for retirement and watching debt are the keys unless you are fortunate enough to earn 6 figures/yr but even then watching debt is key.

    Sorry to derail the thread....but I was actually thinking of this thread yesterday afternoon when I had 2 large rounds left of a big hickory tree. I was tired by then and the truck was about full anyways so I'll go back some other time with a helper or my slitting axe! Did think of maybe parking the truck downhill and rolling them into it.

    How are you getting paid? Tree work? I have rolled 'em up a 8' 4x4. My truck has strong racks. I was thinking a ramp, and a winch would work well.

    Yes I do tree work on the side......use the wood to heat my house and that saves a lot of money, too!
