Years til Travel Time
I've actually been on this forum for a few years, but due to poor user name/password controls, I lost my old log in and am here now under the moniker RenoJay.
I'm 43, and made a bunch of money as an entrepreneur by the time I was mid 30's. My passion is travel, but I have young kids in school who need stability so I'm essentially home bound except for many weekend excursions. My ER goal is to live 3 months in the home location, 3 months abroad, 3 months in US-based location #2 and then 3 months abroad. Then repeat til I die. Given my kids' ages, I'm about 13 years from such a goal.
I'm divorced but have a girlfriend who shares my goals and whom I love spending time with.
All the calculators I've used say I can ER today, but I've been having fun at my "day job" as a business broker. I only work a couple hours a day (from home) at most, and make full time income. Given the geo-constraints of having kiddos, I have no issue w*rking a few more years.
This forum has been extremely valuable, mostly in knowing there are lots of other frugal early retirees out there. Looking forward to getting to know more people over time!
