down side is I can't touch any of it (well almost) until 59 1/2 without giving up an extra 10% to Uncle Sam. I tried the road
worriar thing for a while, it pays well but gets old very fast. I started with a new company and will be fully vested in their
retirement plan just as I reach 59 1/2. What the heck, it keeps me in the south, and a little extra income in retirement is never a
bad idea."

Actually, there are several ways to access your IRA before 59 1/2 WITHOUT paying the 10% penalty.

Have you visited www.retireearlyhomepage.com? The creator of that website, John Greaney, retired six years ago at age 38 and is accessing his IRA's without penalty.
