Intro from Travel4Fun
I am posting my first "real" post under FIRE and Money, but figured I would do a quick introduction here.
I'm married, work for a megacorp. DW is a teacher. If they don't cut her retirement, she'll retire in a few years. I hope to retire a couple of years after that, once we have the house paid off, the retirement toys purchased, and enough stashed away. At that point, we will be in our 50s.
I have a pretty good handle on our expected retirement income and expenses. We don't have a single set amount, but I have a good idea of what we need to live reasonably and travel domestically. After that, the decision boils down to how big our emergency fund will be and how much extra for international travel. Neither of us has any non-financial concerns about being retired, and are very much looking forward to it.
Been lurking for a while. I'm not a big poster, but hopefully I can at least figure out those dryer sheet things some day.
