Hi Fellow Fools,Any thoughts/advice on this appreciated!To shorten a long story, I am age 49 and have $50K cash in my credit union savings. I am debt-free (except mortgage), have a solid e-fund, and am contributing to a 403(b) and ROTH.I owe $95K on the mortgage, 29 years to go, @ .6375%As I am anxious to be mortgage-free at retirement, I'd like to pay a lump sum of $50K towards the principal, thus saving interest and paying it off much more quickly. I will continue to pay extra on the principal. When the mortage is paid off, my goal is to put that $$ aggressively into my 403(b) and ROTH.I may need to help out my father in the next few years, but figure if necessary, I could get a HELOC or home equity loan. Have any of you done anything similar? How does this sound?Thanks in advance,Sheryl
