Due to many events and circumstances in my life, I find that I am now 51 with barely a start on my retirement planning. I am trying to design a strategy that will allow me to retire in 10 years or less and would like to here any thoughts and suggestions on ways to do so.

At the risk of sounding like a broken record to the majority of posters here, let me suggest that you check out the possibility of living in a Latin American or other low-cost foreign country.

Your local bookstore should have books about retiring in other countries that estimate costs and give you some of the plusses and minuses of various places.
