Congratulations. Sounds like it will be a busy retirement but peaceful at the same time.

Peaceful is right.
When I walked part of the property last month it was so quiet my ears hurt..... which is exactly what we are looking for.

I've been playing around on GoogleEarth to get a good lay of the property and think I've found where I want to put the barn. There is a knoll (not grassy) between the street and a fairly large clearing that then slopes southward. by placing the barn on that south slope it will be mostly blocked from view from the street, and will allow a curving driveway to have trees block the view more.
I only hope we can actually pay for this dream.

Don't worry about the money. I am sure you have done your numbers.
Peacefullness, serenity, privacy are important to us. We love people but also love our privacy.
Wife said she wanted a place she could go to our dock in a micro bikini, a beer in one hand a joint in the other if she so wanted to without neighbors gawking at her. (has not happened yet)
We found that place. Our slice of heaven so to speak.

A few things that have come to mind during the first year of my retirement.
Can I keep maintaining this property I own or can I hire others to do it.
Is the property the correct property for my wife if I pass earlier than I want.
I have stairs so is there a place to install an elevator, either stair or shaft elevator as we age and cannot run up and down like we do.
From the house to the dock is 75 stairs. As I age can I still walk these. (I just pushed a road down to the dock so I can drive my UTV now)
During winter and we lose power if a tree comes down can we still cook etc. ( currently arranging quotes to install a full house generator)
How far are the doctors, dentist, supermarket and especially hospital.
