I think the incremental increase in income just provides more $ for the R_I_TRF. (Rich in Tampa Retirement Fund). And when the $ is at the right level, your entire attitude will morph and you'll begin the search for what's most valuable for the next stage.

Good for you Rich! The whole thing is an adventure.
