Re: Do You Ever Feel You Spend Too Much Time On The Forum

Ten years? Whatever you do, dont open it up. I opened one that was about 10-11 months old. Full of green, blue and black stuff. :P And I ran vinegar through it about once a month too...

:P :P :P

Re: Do You Ever Feel You Spend Too Much Time On The Forum

I don't think I spend to much time on this forum but... I do enjoy reading the posts and have learned a lot... helped FIRE... thanks.

When I traveled I missed reading the posts and it was pain to to catch when I got home so I bought a cheap notebook but not all motels have wifi but most now do.

Today I am in southeast Florida after leaving Wisconsin Monday afternoon on my motorcycle... temps from 37 to 85 and no rain or snow yet so it has been a great ride so far. 10 states, 2500 miles.

Will see what tomorrow brings.

Gonzo

Yeah, I'm addicted to reading this forum.* I could be off learning new programming languages, exercising, getting better at guitar, learning to play the piano, building websites, thinking up a side business, but instead I come here.

This forum is great and provides lots of value to me.
Humor and Life Interest:* It's fun just to read stories from other posters, and I can usually find posts that make me chuckle or laugh.

Inspiration:* I also enjoy posts about what to expect in retirement and what people are doing in retirement--they give me ideas of what I might want to do.

Product Analysis: The retired posters (and maybe some unretired ones) are my source of product recs. The ones with engineering backgrounds have the time, seem to enjoy analyzing stuff, and are happy to share their findings.

Financial Tips:* Ironically, I skim the "Fire and Money" posts when they get too complicated for me.* I have settled on Bernstein-like slice-and-dice with mostly index funds.

I love this forum but I think I need to visit less often.* Maybe just on weekends...

Another benefit: if you discuss your plans here (e.g. plan to move, repay mortgage, open HSA account), it's pretty unlikely that you'll overlook some major pitfall in your thinking.
