Thanks for the welcome and the positive comments.
Yes it does feel great to be rid of a mortgage. I have read some threads on the forum regarding whether to payoff early or not. I happen to be one of those people who absolutely hates to have a large long term loan, so I made it a priority to pay it off as quickly as I could.
Donzo, the 14 years is to save. No bennies when I leave. Medical insurance will probably end up being my biggest expense.
Thanks again, and hope to see ya'll around the forum.
