I have flexible numbers/scenarios. If I reach 400K and chose to, then I could afford to FIRE to the old homeplace, set up housekeeping near family and travel/live modestly forever.(I'm from deep in the appalachians). Or if I feel like w*rking longer, with 800K I can live well in a less hillbilly setting. I am 38 and plan on FIREing no later than 52 years old at which time I should have >1 million. Ten years later, the DW should have another 500K+ to add to that. The goal is quality of life and happiness and these are dependent on more factors than net worth. So, for me, I guess 400K is enough, but 1 million is the target...and anytime in between I'll be FI just looking for the reason/scenario to RE. I like options!
