But barring more unexpected I will pack it in this year.

Congrats on that. I think we're about the same age. We hit our number and I'd like to pack it in, but the wife doesn't quite trust the whole stock market thing and has a good paying job she enjoys so she's not ready to pull the pin. And she had an unexpected health issue, so having someone else pay for insurance is good. For her part, she told me I could retire anytime I wanted, but I feel like unless we both do it, it wouldn't feel like retirement for me. So we'll soldier on for a bit longer, and hopefully enjoy a higher lifestyle when the time comes.
