Just wanted to report back!

This thread is locked now but earlier I wrote:

I ended up investing 1/3 immidiately and the rest over 6 months. Perfectly happy with the results. Knowing what I know at this moment in time I could have done even better by going all in but I'm content and sleeping well.

It's not locked, and you can post in it. At the bottom of the thread is an "old post" warning, just check the box and you're good to go

This Thread is more than 229 days old. It is very likely that it does not need any further discussion and thus bumping it serves no purpose.
If you still feel it is necessary to make a new reply, you can still do so though.
I am aware that this Thread is rather old but I still want to make a reply.
