Jake46,
Fort Collins is rated as one of the best places for retirement. What are fun things to do there? Is cost of living affordable? I guess it's all relative. As a General Counsel, practically everyplace is affordable, I think.

1. I work in human resources for a large manufacturing company. My career goal is to retire very soon!

2. I am 55. Worst case scenario is to retire at 62, best case at 59.

3. Married. Two stepdaughters, 4 grandkids.

4. Born & raised in the Cleveland area. Still live here, but fantasize about relocating out west (Nevada, Utah, northern Arizona) in retirement.

5. Daily, but seldom post. Visiting this board is so uplifting & inspires me to take control of my assets & lbym. I've learned so much here.
