Soon to be a distant memory as we move back to Texas on Wednesday.

We've enjoyed being here this last couple of years but are keen to move closer to the kids, and closer to some hills.

I said on a few threads I was rejected for a HELOC re-fi ... "Insufficient income." Seems they only wanted working types. Not enough income shown on 2 years taxes to entice them. And that was a couple years ago.

I would think in this enviroment anybody thinking of retiring should line up any all credit lines/mortgage refis while working.

FIRE'd since 2005

I was going to cancel some credit cards I never use...just to clean things up and not have them languishing in a drawer. There are no fees involved with maintaining them. Maybe I should reconsider this action. I use two of my cards for cash back and the other for airline miles and pay them off every month. I am not planning on getting any mortgages or lines of credit.
