Own a 2-bedroom condo near Diamond Head in Honolulu with 30 year 4.625% mortgage. Will rent it out while away on my travels. Plan to take a year off to hike part of the Appalachian Trail and learn to sail yachts in Sydney, Australia. May go to grad school overseas on my own dime, then return to Hawaii for more school using the GI Bill.
As a military retiree I pay about $240/year for TRICARE health insurance with very small copays.
