"Can you supply the URLs of some of those sites?"

My favorite early retirement-oriented site is:

This site is about early retirement. Although I was a somewhat early retiree (age 58) I am now 67 but still enjoy following this site.

My favorite financial site is:

I have, over the years, become convinced that index fund investing is the way to go. This site reinforces my beliefs that I'm not smart enough to beat the market and I have been happily investing this way for quite a while.

I should mention that I was originally brought to TMF 15 or so years ago when I did a web search for "early retirement." That brought me to John Greaney's (intercst) original Retire Early Home Page. Shortly thereafter, he transitioned it to TMF and the REHP board was where we all exchanged views and thoughts on early retirement and FIRE (Financial Independence/Retire Early.) I thought it was a wonderful place to exchange views, learn things from those who had gone before, etc.
after a while, it became a board for political hectoring ands I had no interest in getting into that. The original REHP has since become the "campfire" or something like that and this board was an attempt to let the more liberal members discuss things among themselves. The last time I was on this board - quite a while ago - it seemed like some of the more conservative folks had also taken up residence and it was going political again.

Personally, I don't want to bash either side and am more interested in the substance of investing and FIRE issues. Hence, my affinity for the sites mentioned above.
