Yeah that all makes sense and I agree totally that I expect to do more travel when young then when old. But travel isn't the only expense, there is also health care, which operates in the inverse. And once I stop traveling I imagine I'd still love to live out my days in some waterfront property waking up every morning to the ocean, that won't be cheap. And if I had the money I'd rather have 24/7 in home health aid once needed rather than move to a retirement community, that will be expensive too.

Just not sure which side of the equation will win out, especially considering the trends of health care costs.

Supposedly no tree grows to the sky. But I believe that the jury may be out with regard to US health care. What an absolute racket! Before long many jobholders may get a weekly bill rather than paycheck. A break on health care is what you get from having a job. You expect food and shelter too? Silly boy!
