I've checked SS everyway I can possibly try. Even cut both mine and wife's back to 70% as was suggested. Bumped up withdrawal 30% higher than what I think it will be on every calculator I could find (some are strange), dropped return rates to 2-3% and extended life expectancy out another 10yrs longer than what anyone in mine or the wife's family. We passed on every calculator scenario. New home, hopefully no surprises and if we do, we do everything ourselves, completely. I'm working now to get invested hopefully correctly. It doesn't take much to make me happy. Could care less about what I drive or what others think of us. Always been the odd ones. Wife's drive is about 8 min. Gas bill is high because we take off and just go. Doesn't bother us to do this. Vehicles are not the best mpg.
I got a text this morning that a co-worker had passed yesterday, early 50's, other co worker that had HA at 50. BF passed years ago at 41. Surprisingly, I'm not having second thoughts at all. I'm not sure what else I can possibly do and we have actual COL since I haven't worked in a yr-1/2.
