HobbiesforRetirement.com, a blog that updates with information on hobbies that best fit the lives of seniors, has published several new pages, including “Early Retirement Planning,” “Senior Camping,” and “Senior Volunteers.”

The page “Early Retirement Planning” from HobbiesforRetirement.com delineates several methods of saving money for retirement, providing positives and negatives for each. Instead of relying on social security or pensions, the page recommends investing in mutual funds and real estate for more aggressive, though taxable, retirement planning. Non-taxable retirement plans, such as 401ks and Roth IRAs, are also described. Finally, the page advises future retirees to ensure that all high interest loans, like credit card debt, are paid off before retiring.

“Senior Camping,” written for HobbiesforRetirement.com, provides information on the time-honored senior activity of camping in the great outdoors. The page notes that many seniors will want to purchase a “wonderfully cozy recreation vehicle” to make camping a bit easier and less rugged. However, HobbiesforRetirement.com does not advise simply relaxing in the comfort of an RV, but also recommends that seniors try dirt bikes and all-terrain vehicles while camping. The page also mentions the great deal seniors receive when purchasing the Senior Pass to visit America’s national parks.

Seniors “can greatly improve the community, either by joining national programs like the Senior Corps, or by participating in service activities sponsored by local senior centers” states the page “Senior Volunteers.” HobbiesforRetirement.com proposes volunteer work as a way to occupy the time of seniors with excess energy and a strong work ethic. The main program listed for seniors to get involved with is the Senior Corps, which the page notes is a government sponsored program. Seniors in this program are said to be given the choice of joining the Foster Grandparent Program, the Senior Companion Program, or RSVP, the Retired Senior Volunteer Program. These programs are noted to aid seniors in helping children, other seniors, and their community, respectively. “Senior Volunteers” makes a final note that even seniors in nursing homes should still be able to find ways to volunteer with a local senior center if they desire to do so.
