I am about to pull the trigger on retirement at 55. July 1 is my target date. I am looking forward to doing most anything that does NOT involve a pay check. I have been on someone else’s schedule ever since I started kindergarten. I am going to be on my schedule for a while. Besides I am looking forward to telling someone: “If you double my pay, I couldn’t go any faster!”.

Often uninformed, seldom undecided.

Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. Mark Twain

My sentiments exactly mostly! The money is like a drug or mirage that keeps many from retiring. I've been ER'd since January but I confess to working about a dozen days since then, mostly at DW's prodding and customer's begging.

Congrats and "Don't look back."
