I just read 400 posts under the CV topic and there was a shout-out for a retirement thread back on May 5th. I’m glad my wife declined to retire until our youngest is out of college. So we have 4 more years. It would have been pointless to retire this year anyway since we want to travel across the US first. We both started work in the early 90’s and maxed out our 401ks basically in the SPY. Not one dime in fixed income. I know that will creat a fire storm. We pretty much blitzkriged all our number goals which is why we never slowed down in equities. It’s not a greed thing. It’s just the fact we can adjust our spending to remain well below our means. I was just curious about other people’s path to retirement. We never took on rental properties but know others that have done well in that arena.
