I too bought during the dip, which allowed our portfolio to recover its pre-crisis valuation by Feb 2010. Now its more than double its low water mark.

Sorry -- should have said four years! My math is good when it comes to calculating net worth, but lousy when it tries to track the passage of time, I guess

I have seen the same thing during the last three years. My NW has increased significantly. My actual withdrawal until age 95 increase by about $20,000 per year worked.
Very conservative with investments. Not ER'd yet, 48 years old. Please do not take anything I write or imply as legal, financial or medical advice directed to you. Contact your own financial advisor, healthcare provider, or attorney for financial, medical and legal advice.

I took a big hit in the 2008 downturn but by March, 2010, I had bounced back from my late 2007 high and have greatly exceeded it since then (and remember I stopped working in late 2008).
Sorry--that was four years, not three. Big difference, although not so much to me.
