Hi, I'm Dalmuti, longtime lurker ready to join the conversation

Hi, I have been reading the boards here for a year or two, and have really appreciated forming the basics of my retirement strategy based on the discussions here. I decided I should finally create an account so that I can actually join the discussions instead of standing by the sidelines.

I am 30, and not on a super-aggressive track to retirement, but I certainly have no interest in working a day past 60. In reality I expect to retire closer to 50, but I'm way too far from that date to start getting my hopes up now.

There's no time like the present to get started.


ER, for all intents and purposes. Part-time income <5% of annual expenditure.
