Yes, I'm with you. Fishing boat (s) would be Phase II

I would retire to a small beach house in northern FL on the Atlantic coast. I would have a walk-in gun safe. I would hire a really good bodyguard/designated driver and then get veeeeeery inebriated for about a year. Then i would find an adjunct teaching job at a community college in that area, a yellow lab (adolescent or older) to name lemonjellow, and coast for my remaining years.

I would also want a mid-eighties Ninja 650 to put-put around on.

Pay every bill I have and close every account.

Buy much more land around my house,

Hire a 24/7 armed Gatekeeper Service

Cut my home free from the grid.

Buy a brand new Mercedes and cherry out my 88 Mercedes Wagon

Donate $1000 for a brass plaque and a new crapper for my favorite place of thought Johns John to my Liberal Arts University Employer along with a reasonable taillight notice and the keys to my Electronics Shop.

pray nobody asks how I won it considering I never buy a ticket!

Hitting the super payoffs seems like it would be the best thing that could ever happen to you. In many cases it has just ruined the people's lives. I am fairly happy with what I have done with the wages I have earned over a lifetime and don't really require many toys to make me happy.

My current hobby is collecting Mosin-Nagant rifles, but with unlimited resources, I am not sure that it would be fun anymore. Sometimes the chasing is more fun then the catching.

That said, I wish you all luck. It would be super cool if someone here hit it.

I drive my Co truck to work in the morning just like normal and maybe show up a little early , wait til everyone got here , Put a $100 on each desk tell them all Merry Christmas and walk home . So generous you say , Well its better than I would like to tell a few to go do To be honest with you they would all expect me to show up again the next day even after leaving for the day unannounced . I would be packing my family to head to a NFA friendly, warmer state down south and I would start applying for everything under the sun thats NFA . Call my family and tell them Im moving , new job transfer and it must happen quickly . Why because most of my family members minus my adopted father and my wifes parents . All the rest of them are all mooches and they would be knocking down the door for their handouts . no thanks I want the F outta here before they all get lined up . Buy up as much property as I could swing out in the boonies and live like I have always wanted to . I might even splurge and buy a nice double wide house trailer and a used jeep for myself .
