Early 30's and well on our way (we hope)...

Hi! Have read these boards for nearly 10 years now, and finally decided to register and post.

Quick overview on DW and I:

- early 30's, DINK's (but likely changing that last part in the next year or two)
- strong believers in financial responsibility and the "FI" part of FIRE. As for "RE" - it'd be nice to at least have an option, but it's not necessarily the focus
- Pretty well on track towards our goals (I think) - with no debt (other than our 4.875% mortgage) and ~$400k towards retirement spread between tax-deferred and taxable accounts

Have learned a ton here through the years - and looking forward to learning more!

Welcome! I am just amazed at how many young peeps (like yourselves) have saved up a starter nest egg early in life & are on their way to FIRE! You are amazing & don't you forget it!

Just registered (lurker for the last couple of weeks) but I'm from PSU as well.

Very similar story as myself, the only difference is no taxable accounts yet. If I could ask what you invested in that account?
