if you quit without having found your next job, how long could you make it financially?

I have about $16k in non-retirement assets (plus a good tax deduction if I access it), and another $50k in HELOC for emergencies. I figure at $1500-$2000/month, I could last 6-8 months.

Plus you would have the time to do the enjoyable things that you haven't had the time to do while you've been working 40 hours every week.

Not likely if those enjoyable things cost money. I would probably go into extreme frugal mode until I secured a new source of income.
