Good luck on your planning and subsequent retirement!

I am very happy for you. Best wishes on your new life. BTW - buy and use lots of sunscreen and use it. Nevada get more sun in a week than Alaska get in a year.

I have a few years until the mortgage is paid off and I can afford to retire. I just hope I stay alive and sane long enough.
