In fact, if I may, I'd like to invite any one else who un-retired
to share their stories (or again, provide urls for us late-comers to this forum :)

For those who un-retired, and also for those who are early-retired,
and stayed or staying that way, I'm curious about some numbers anyone would be kind enough to not mind sharing..particularly your ratio, that is, the year you retired, your net worth divided by your annual living expenses, what was the ratio?

If people un-retired, was it because they decided their ratio was too low? If so, was it because you estimated your living expenses correctly but decided the ratio needs to be bigger, like 25 instead of 20 (living expenses 4% rather than 5% of total NW)? Or unexpected expenses e.g. health care? other?
