biob asked:
what do you consider a reasonable yearly income to live comfortably on ? I realize that lifestyles differ with each person, I'm just wondering what everyone considers to be a minimum retirement income.

Well, I really can't help you out there, it's so subjective. I DO urge you not to forget about (or to underestimate) the costs of health insurance.

Once you've figured out your desired retirement income, you also need to figure out how long you will want it to last and how you should invest it. That will help you arrive at a yearly safe withdrawal rate from your investments.

The Retire Early Home Page has a wealth of information reagarding these topics.
