Ha! I just saw this like three years after it was posted.
In theory, I'm on track. Hitting my FI number by 2020 was based on a 6% nominal return contributing roughly 40% per year. We've raised our real contributions now with promotions and COL raises, and are probably pretty close to 50% gross income going to savings.
I believe we'll make FI as planned on the original set of circumstances, but those circumstance may soon change as they tend to do when you're in your mid- to late-30s. Whether or not I join the RE class of 2020 is very much up in the air!
