I used to define early retirement as 45 and normal retirement at 55. Our parents did it with pensions and paid off homes and living frugally for life even now. I always imagined that we'd have to slog until at least 45 to be really secure then everything else is gravy. And we'd consider retiring at 55 because I knew we could afford it.
But reading my question about what is considered early and 55 is early I can see that. I think even if we move we could retire by 55 comfortably.
There are so any variables right now I can't control. I can only guess that we won't spend more than we are. And that we as not have a mortgage and we will only be making a fraction of what we do now.
If we move looking at savings calculators and fire I think conservatively 50 is possible.
