Wow...it seems like yesterday (2008) that I introduced myself to the ER crowd and announced that I'd hit the 100K net worth threshold:
An Introduction, savings milestone and some questions (all in one post!)
Everyone told me that your first 100K is the hardest...and they were right. It took me 38 years to hit that mark; yet only seven years after my initial post, I'm now at 250K (single, 44 years of age). I'm retired AF (decent pension), have a V.A. pension, the aforementioned net worth, and just landed a GS-9 civil service job with promotion potential to GS-12. Granted, I could probably do 20 years in the federal service but that's not the plan...10 years tops! I wanna be out of the "rat race" in my mid-50's.
Life is good! Thank you to everyone on these boards who give advice and help those who seek wisdom!
