My grandmother used to say, "visitors and fish start to smell after 3 days." You're pushing it.

I've attached my Days Until Retire spreadsheet in two formats. Apparently it did not work when I posted it the first time.

Sorry, but my attempt to attach the spreadsheet didn't work. Maybe the forum does not allow that spreadsheets as attachments. If anyone wants it send me a private message and I will send it direct. However, several have mentioned they have downloaded apps to their smart phones so that may be easier.

I really enjoyed the careers I had (34 1/2 yrs), but it was all toward the goal of retirement. At 55, I walked out the door with my DW, now in our 7th year of retirement, we do and go where and when we want. RVing is just another facet of our still busy lives. Just took the 4 yo granddaughter on her first RV adventure as she called it. We had a ball. I can go on and on, but we know we are blessed and are thankful for what we have.
Not being flip, but you really don't keep track of which day it is. ;-)

Semi retired at 60 with health insurance and waited for DW to call it quits. Now we travel the country and bought a park model in Arizona for a winter destination to travel from in the southwest.

Wrong, do the math. If you do nothing but invest the monthly check by the time you are 65 you will have more and by the time you are 70 you will have much more. Each person should do what meets their needs the best. Insurance is a big factor.
That being said I retired at 47 and plan to start my SS at age 62 even if I only invest it.

Im closer to your timing than the others, 30 years till im 65.
Plan to never retire, hopefully just keel over one day. I do what i want now, so i see no point in retiring. (Well i do hate mowing every week , should get my oldest trained to do that )
Plus in a couple years i plan on being "the man " instead of working for "the man".
