Howdy!

Hi folks, been lurking for a few months on the site, good stuff. My wife and I are in the home stretch to FIRE. We both turn 45 this month and plan to pull the plug at 55, unless we can get to $5M sooner. Any thoughts, ideas, anything we need to be thinking about are greatly appreciated.
Thanks.

Hello and welcome to the forum. As far as what you should be thinking about, Nords did a great job of summarizing here.

Hi serie1926 and welcome aboard.

$5M by 55 -- that's an impressive goal, and it will be an impressive accomplishment. Do you have some pretty serious spending planned in retirement?

Coach

REWahoo, thanks for the link!

Coach, not really, just don't want to be uncomfortable. I figure this should give us around $150k/yr.
