I am 71 and based on my experience, after 11 years offun retirement, I believe you will need in excess of$1 million in investments if you plan to retire in thenext 5 years. Of course if you are planning short spreeand don't expect to live too long, you could shadethat sum. We live in a small house in an inexpensivepart of the country, have a small mortgage and no otherdebt. We have been round the world but live relativelyfrugally. The book "The Millionaire Next Door" is mustreading if you plan early retirement. Invest 'foolishlybut plan wisely! Have a good life - - Matthew
