My profiles says my join date was 07-09-2004. I retired on 12-31-2010. A little over six years but I probably don't count since I was 62 at retirement, hardly a RE. On the other hand the help I got from the people here in those early days made retirement a reality (eventually).

I don't win the prize as the longest pre-retiree...I joined 5 years ago this month.

That said, when I joined, I thought I had about 2 years to go. I still think I have about two years to go. I guess I have "just another 5 years" syndrome.

I have suffered from that same syndrome, and have been advised to see a psychiatrist
