Glad to hear your first year went so well. Does DGF know about your beneficiary?

I agree that you will need to spend more. Your truck sounds awesome! And do get yourself another Glock if you want to. I'm guessing they appreciate in value over time. Enjoy!!
Sometimes it is like a job, but I work a lot less hours at it. And it's sort of fun too. I booked two weeks at an RV park in FL for mid-Jan 2018 to Mid March. I have the Truck, I picked it up yesterday, now it's just a fifth wheel I need.

I may have them managed at some point, but getting better tenants has made my life MUCH easier, and I make a lot more money I used to be a low-income landlord, but found that there was too much drama in that market. Now it's just market based tenants for me.
Congratulations on your first year of fiRE!.

I just realized from your profile that you're just a town away from me. If you don't my asking, do you think that there are many good opportunities south of the twin cities? Prices have certainly gone up this year, during exactly the time we're trying to build a humble real estate portfolio to help with diversification.

I love this thread, and if this is tail- feathers, then I hope more threads like this start. I sort of escape from my living room for a few moments when I read about other peoples nice adventures, and success.
