Hello, I said mature, not in their dotage. After all, I am not exactly fresh out of the egg myself.

I would be frightened to meet the woman who would pay me for sex.

You did see the thread where delaying your Paltry S.S. to age 70, lets you spend an extra $350K from age 62 to age 70? Right?

Also my 'other sources of funds' will dry up long before I reach your AGE level of maturity.

Seriously, I think you will end up dying with a huge pile of money. If you don't enjoy spending money, that is certainly your perogative. We enjoy spending ours and plan on getting rid of most of it. Our 'Paltry S.S.' will amount to $45K per year alone. That is probably more money than I will be awake to spend at age 80.

So where in New Zealand, and what is the nature of the work?
Hamilton, North Island. Drove all aound the Taupo region as well. I'm a geologist...work in development of geothermal resources for power generation. You know...alternative energy. Most people hear this and think that it is some sort of research project. Nope. Commercial, money-making, unsubsidized, Republican-and-Democrat-pleasing industry. I like the work, I like the people, I like the industry, but I'd like to cut the hours by about 2/3. Work 1/3 of the time and enjoy my kids, volunteering, and parents (and in-laws) before either I or they are too old to. If I only worked 1/3 of the time, then I think I'd feel good about taking a few extra days in New Zealand or the Philippines, or Bali, rather than wanting to scurry home a soon as possible.

Thatís a good one! Unless something goes really wrong, I won't evens spend $350,000 between 62 and 70, let alone an extra $350,000.

I wasn't calling your SS paltry, only mine, which is much less due to an early retirement, s spotty work record, and low SS maximum contriibutions in the years when I earned the most money.

Don't be too sure on this one. My FIL is still traveling, and even teaching the occasional seminar at age 92. Longevity seems to drop in from time to time when it is unexpected.

Still, you seem to have a really good time, and are not made uneasy by whatever risks you may or may not be running. Seems like a winning formula for you.

Re: Millionaire stuff

I just upgraded from the 2x to the 3 at a time netflix plan. They have that button that says "upgrade now and we'll send xyz today!" it's been calling me with it's siren song of $3/month more for so long... I finally clicked it. I blame wanting to get the next Carnivale series disk even though I haven't watched Mongolian Ping Pong yet while my wife is hoarding some Jennifer Aniston movie. Planets aligned for weakness and clicking the button.

Nothing like living in luxury baby.
