I've had time off for a few month now and I gotta say it's nice but I think for me personally I would need the structure of some kind of "work" whether that be sitting on a board of directors for some charity organization or helping out at some kind of non-profit I think that would be good. I have a tendency to be a lazy person and if I don't have some kind of responsibilities I tend to drink a little too much wine and goof off by watching too many movies or things like CD, I have taken to reading Bio's of people that interest me, but in the long run that's all goof off stuff. Again, goofing off is good in your down time, only thing is your down time shouldn't be 100 percent of your time.

Travel, read, finally write a novel. I would love to volunteer at an animal shelter but I'm allergic to cats so I don't see it happening.

I have serious health issues, so it's very, very hard not to be pragmatic. But my dream would be to live in an airpark an a major city suburb. Three bedroom brick home, Ford truck and Subaru Outback in the garage, and Cessna 172 and HondaJet in the hangar. Would look forward to $100 hamburgers on the weekend.

I would also join ownership groups for soccer clubs. One MLS team (hopefully Seattle Sounders, but I don't really know how that all works), a semi-pro or lower league men's team here in San Diego, and a women's pro team associated with one of the above.

I would go hiking along the Pennine Way in England for starters.

Pennine Way | National Trails

I'd buy a historic manor home in Europe somewhere and furnish it with fabulous antiques after I restored it to it's former glory.

I'd definitely go adventuring - lots of travel to all parts of the world.

I would definitely work because God proscribes labor in his word, but I would start the business I'm dreaming of eventually doing and do that instead of what I do now since I wouldn't have to worry if it earns any money. I would also travel more to different battlefields much like I did when I lived in Las Vegas and had more time off. Read, do my historical research, hike and finally learn to knit.

I'd be doing what I'm doing now, because I enjoy building a business.

First thing I would do is buy a ranch in Kansas to raise goats, horses, and cows. Then build houses for all my kids to live there with their kids. There would be a live-in tutor for the kids. In my house, I would have a recording studio and all the instruments I love to play- piano, electric and acoustic guitars, hammered dulcimer and an electric bass. There would be a pool on the land, and everything would be wheelchair accessible.

I would get an RV and travel with my DH and whoever else wanted to come with us. I would use the earnings from the ranch to build housing communities for homeless folks and disabled veterans.These communities would also provide healthcare, job training and entertainment. In return, the residents would help with cooking, maintenance, and using their strengths to enrich and entertain the other residents.

I would contribute to campaigns of politicians who have this country's best interests at heart, and put Americans first.

I'd work in a similar job to what I do now but reduce my hours a little. I'd continue to volunteer for my nonprofit board. Not much would change though I is I became super wealthy I'd also create a real estate investment trust.
