This is really the wrong forum to ask questions about fatFIRE. I would suggest checking out this subreddit:

Yep, IMHO it's what you have to spend over your normal level of spending.

In a LCOL area with a paid-off home, our normal level of spending is only around $50k/year.

So actually going out & spending $100k/year would be FatFIRE for us.

Though not so much in a HCOL area for a homeowner paying ~$20k of that annually in property taxes...versus only ~$2k here.
