5 Year FIRE Anniversary

Today is my five year FIRE anniversary. Yahoo! Yes, April Fools Day was the day I thought most appropriate to walk out the door.

This current situation was never in our plan (the lockdown part), but weíve learned a lot from you all and have our 3 yr stash of cash and are sticking to our buy and hold plan. I am, however, reluctant to login and see the actual damage. Maybe soon. Contingency plans b, c, and d may need to be activated, but not today. Today we will just be thankful that we are relatively young and healthy and have had 5 years of great retirement experiences together.

Thank you to all the members who share their wisdom daily (I canít keep up with the new posts anymore). Iím certain we would be an emotional wreck without this forum.
