Re: Poll: what's your burn rate?

Thanks Ha. I like your SS strategy. Having no pension of any sort, it is nice to have at least one thing that DH and I can't screw up.

Poyet, the study is interesting. We have always had a fair amount of our assets in rental real estate and as UncleMick says, it is the "horse we road in on" to financial independence. Given high valuations, over the past several years DH has exited us from many of the real estate investments.


No more lawyer stuff, no more political stuff, so no more CYA
