50 is too optimistic for me. I'm planning on 53 or 54 - when the house will be fully paid off. That's 10-11 years from now. Could be sooner, especially as I really don't think I'll stop working entirely - just "work lite" as a PT barista or something. Or if I could consult as a PM, but without the travel, I'd work indefinitely. But I don't want to be doing this travel thing more than another 10 years.

I here that a lot. I've never had a job where I travel. Pretty much a cubicle warrior my entire career. To me, the traveling sounds glamorous. But I guess it does get old after awhile.

53 is my magic time frame as well. Everything will come together at that point: paid off home, FIRE asset target should be met and the last kid out of the house.
