Just wanted to say that I enjoy these fine forums of yours. I've read quite a bit of posts on this site and the positivity and "everybody working towards a similar goal" mentality is refreshing.
As for my ability to retire early... well, I am hopeful! I am 35 and married with a not-quite-one-year-old son. Our combined 401k balance is around 100K (when the market is at 11k),we have a separate IRA of a couple thousand, and a savings account with 5-6K.. our safety net. I'm hoping that time is kind to us.
