I think the biggest danger is assuming you can't do it.

Thanks to everyone for the thoughts. I'm certainly assuming I can do it -- the numbers work out and I'm saving over a third of my gross income. It's encouraging to hear the other success stores, especially decath's.

Maybe I should also say that I'm hoping the E in FIRE can mean age 40 rather than 48 or 60. Sure would be nice to have a windfall or blowout investment to jump that date up by a few. But I guess that would be just a matter of degree, not in whether or not FIRE actually happens.
