Hello decath, yep I'm not dead, just not on TMF much... and not FIREd.

EOM November 2000:

Had saved up 31.8 months living expenses (avg trailing 12 months)

In between, moved to FL, bought a house, bought a truck, took up a few hobbies, got promoted, saved and invested, got married.....

EOM November 2010:

Have saved up 146.4 months living expenses. -My average expenses are now 2.6x what they were in 2000.

On the way to FIRE, but have a long way to go. DW and I are hoping to downsize a bit and hopefully move overseas for a few years before moving back to the States and "settling down." -Will see how that goes.
