I think he gets a nice pension. Free secret service too. That must be a hoot.

C-T

Just curious, what do you think is a reasonable age to ER given a balanced lifestyle and a decent income? Could help a few Young Dreamers who may, at times, overdose on ER thoughts.

Bare Bones spending plan:

No nestegg.

Live in paid off tear-drop trailer parked out in the desert.

Eat at Costco (free samples).

Shower in city gym.

But at least you are not sleeping in the park !

Nest Egg = (((0 *2) - 20k SS) * 25) ==> 500k in debt

Yeah, but in this case answering that phone call had a "happy" ending.

I suspect that there are at least as many stories of people who wish they'd NEVER answered that phone call and would have been happy to retire at that age...
