Hi - Looking to get out in 1 to 5

My wife and I just married off our youngest child, I'm one year away from state employee retirement eligability, and we are paying down our debts. I'm beginning to think we may actually be able to retire before I turn 67 years old. I'm ready to learn from all I can from everyone on this site. I'm glad to be here!

Welcome, Jboles.
Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.
