Count in another who will very probably be in Thailand this fall.* I also plan to return to Burma/Myanmar and visit Laos for the first time, but Bangkok will probably be more or less a base of operations in October/November.* October 3 is my last day at work, and I want to poke more around southeast Asia and central/south America before I launch the gameplan.*
I find this thread quite interesting.* I've always had a "gut" feel, based on observation and discusssions with family and friends, that retirement costs decrease dramatically as you bump along in decades.* My retirement income will effectively be 100% COLA'd pension--not enough in my 40's and 50's; probably way more than adequate in my 70's and 80's.* I'm trying to bend my inflexible pension to meet my income needs.* The default strategy is to sell the bubbled-out house, chill out as an ex-pat in a low cost of living area for a few years, then buy a home outright when the foreclosures peak in a couple of years.

This could be a first!
