Wow...it seems like yesterday (2008) that I introduced myself to the ER crowd and announced that I'd hit the 100K net worth threshold:
Everyone told me that your first 100K is the hardest...and they were right. It took me 38 years to hit that mark; yet only seven years after my initial post, I'm now at 250K (single, 44 years of age). I'm retired AF (decent pension), have a V.A. pension, the aforementioned net worth, and just landed a GS-9 civil service job with promotion potential to GS-12. Granted, I could probably do 20 years in the federal service but that's not the plan...10 years tops! I wanna be out of the "rat race" in my mid-50's.
Life is good! Thank you to everyone on these boards who give advice and help those who seek wisdom!
