    I think I have it all figured out but you never know. I am in process of buying our retirement home in the mountains in Ca. My Co. is thriving and we blow the doors off of our business goals each year. The plan I am in rite I will be semi retired in 5 years with everything I own except my current home paid off. In the next 5 I will have my retirement home paid off. At that 10 year mark we will move to our retirement home with full bennys from UPS (where the wife works) and a comfortable living from my Co. until I turn 65. I am 42 now. I then will have the resources to take those nice full guided hunts with the wife and fallow our kids around and drive them nuts like they have done to us for so many years! Hahhahha.

    I have to agree with UH you need to plan ahead and get the things you need not so much as to what you want. With good financial planning you can do it all even with not a lot of income.

    My fingers are crossed as well! Putting our current investment home on the market in less than a week. Last appraisal we are up 200k with no comps in the area. The market is lacking homes at the moment and the stars are aligned for my dreams to come true. Were 26 and 25. Have paid off her grad school cash and should be able to make enough on this home to buy a very nice smaller home with lil to no mortgage. Hopefully all goes well and this transition is smooth and easy. We are ecstatic to move on to a hope of freedom. This home has been a nightmare. But with the minimal money and sweat that I can pyle into it it has paid off handsomely. Hopefully it goes quick!!

    So, you're saying that I shouldn't just bank on social security to retire on?

    I agree with you on the IRA, compound interest is a beautiful thing. Every once in a while, I consider throwing a bunch of money towards my house, and try to pay it off early, but when I get to thinking about it, I just go buy a rental house instead.
    My mind is a raging torrent, flooded with rivulets of thought cascading into a waterfall of creative alternatives.

    That caught my attention too. The first thing I look for is: anything from Oregon, DIY, public. I realize guided, private is still hunting but not what I relate to. By the way, I had no idea the more posts you have the cooler you are?? I've alway been kind of a looser when it came to popularity contests... You guys are funny, keep it up!
