Re: 2012 - What are your Plans / Dreams / Fuzzy Intentions?

1. Finally retire (this will be my third try as folks keep offering me good money - but I'm determined this time).

2. Buy a boat. I've got plenty of money for what I want and have found two good boats already. I'll be able to move quickly when the time comes.

3. Get said new boat to the Great Lakes and cruise.
