How do you define FI, barebones, and comfortable?

Also, I use net worth as my ultimate tracking number since when I become FI our family is currently planning to move overseas to my wife's family. So all assets will be sold.

My new goal is to be FI when my son turns 3 so he can enter preschool overseas. I just can't take working for another 10 years... need a break. My new target to quit is summer 2008, although my retirement will be I think "barebones" and I haven't really sat down and set up a retirement budget. Overseas preschool is free, healthcare is free, we have a house to live in, and a car... but we will want to travel frequently. And we will eventually want to move back to the States.
