Class of 2016

Hi future FIRERs
I am planning to FIRE in 2016 and thought it would be neat to have other class of 2016'ers share their plans, thoughts, concerns etc on this thread.
Would be interesting to share our stories on how we are progressing, our anxieties, triumphs and setbacks as we travel this exciting road.
Even if you're not in the class of 2016, hop on board the thread. Every opinion and experience is valuable.

Am thinking of seeing a financial planner. i'm not sure of the best way to allocate investments in order to minimize taxes when I FIRE. Has anyone had experience with Financial Planners. I hear you have to be careful in choosing the right one. Plenty of fly by nighters out there.

There's already a class of 2016 thread. (I keep track of a few threads since I'm all over the map on when to pull the plug. Maybe 2013 if I get a severance package this year... Or as late as 2016.... Hoping it's before that.

Closing this thread -- please use the link above for this one.

And yes, I plan to be "class of 2016" too!

"Hey, for every ten dollars, that's another hour that I have to be in the work place. That's an hour of my life. And my life is a very finite thing. I have only 'x' number of hours left before I'm dead. So how do I want to use these hours of my life? Do I want to use them just spending it on more crap and more stuff, or do I want to start getting a handle on it and using my life more intelligently?" -- Joe Dominguez (1938 - 1997)

RIP to Reemy, my avatar dog (2003 - 9/16/2017)
