Yep. That's me. I start drawing social security as of next month (the month after your 62nd birthday) and will receive my first check about the 15th of April. Whoopee! At last I get some of the money back that I have paid in all these years.
I also can now take advantage of the one time $10 purchase of the Golden Age Pass (or whatever they are calling it now) that will provide free entry into most National Parks and Monuments, as well as half price camping in federal campgrounds and many state facilities as well. That will actually help when we visit Phoenix since it will only cost $3.50 per day instead of $7 to park out by the river.
We will be here only about another week. We plan to leave on Monday the 23rd for points west. It will take a few days but we will be in Arizona eventually. Our travel speed will depend on what route we take, what we stop to see along the way, the weather, the wind and what we feel like at any point in time.
Thanks to all who remembered my birthday and sent their wishes, congratulations or condolences.
