Greetings from a new member

Hi all. I'm Steve, and my wife Rhonda and I are now 51 yrs old, with an ER date of mid 2011 at the age of 56. That's the best we could do after the dot com meltdown delayed our plans by 6 years.

I stumbled onto this forum through my many hours researching retirement planing sites, calculators, withdrawl strategy articles, etc.

I look forward to partaking and hopefully contributing to this community.

Steve (aka: Renegade)

Welcome Steve to the Board. So you have tried Dory's FireCalc calculator linked to at the bottom of this site?

Thanks.

Yes, I have tried FIREcalc, and pretty much every other calculator out there, as well.
