Congratulations! Our net worth is fairly similar to yours and it's a nice feeling that we could make it if we really had to right now. The things that keep us going with the job are a) 2 kids still in college, b) the frightening rise in health insurance and medical expenses c) a desire for a little higher standard of living and security in a long retirement. We're thinking that my husband will quit in about 4 years. Meanwhile, we've got the part-time work plan (every other month starting in September) and our RV to help ease the pain until he quits. My husband and two sons just returned from a week in Yosemite (we live in Tennessee) where they hiked and had a fabulous time.

I envy all of you who figured out how to LBYM and save for the long haul when you were young!
