RV Life Baby Boomer

They say the baby boomer years are from 1946 to 1964, so if you were born in this time period means you are a baby boomer, {congratulations}.

 

It is also estimated that in North America there are about 74 million baby boomers, dwindling every day.  Also, people think that one of the reasons for the boom is couples reuniting after the end of world war two.  As I was growing up there were so many great TVs shows back then - here are a few of the good ones I remember:

 

Howdy Doody, The Brady Bunch, Have Gun Will Travel, Bonanza, Ed Sullivan Sunday Night @ 8:00, The Twilight Zone, I Love Lucy, Andy Griffith show & so many other great shows.

The music back then was the best ever (haha might be just a bit bias). King Elvis Presley was sure my favorite, others included the Beach Boys, Dion, Bob Seger, Tina Turner, Cher, Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash the list could go on forever that is some of the greatest music ever written and sang & is still playing today.

 

In the year 2011, the first baby boomers became 65 age of retirement.  A lot of the boomers are not sitting back in there rocking chairs, they are very very active and living longer due to modern medicine & keeping themselves fitter than previous generations.  Some are even supporting there adult children still living at home. The influences & spending power of baby boomers over the years has created wealth in America; such as voting, buying homes, cars, travel & so much more. Baby boomers are still the largest consumer group.  A lot of the boomers have a lot more wealth than previous generations. The buying power is huge.  A lot of boomers are very frugal with there spending - not buying new vehicles, drive them longer, not buying as many new clothes as they don't need as much as they are not working anymore.  The advertisers seem to be concentrating on the millennials market as opposed to boomers. They are missing out on a huge huge market.  Boomers own a large majority of financial assets in the Americas (we own about 63% of all assets so we are a huge force to be dealt with). It is so nice to be a boomer after all these years of hard hard work.

 

Hope you have a great day!
