WOW! Well at least those incredible commuting costs will go down in retirement.

Retired since summer 1999.

I wondered if I had maybe overstated our driving so went and looked at maintenance records from a year ago. My driving has averaged almost exactly 1500 miles a month. I did overstate DH a bit...he actually averaged 2600 a month. We are really looking forward to the reduction in driving with retiring.

In my case, I live 45 miles from job #1 (in the boondocks) and I also have job #2 (barefoot hoof trimming), which takes me all over. So 3K miles/mo is a conservative estimate. But I have a Toyota Yaris that gets 42 mpg, so that really helps.
