It's been a while, and I didn't track things too closely back in my pre-Fool days, but I'd say our FIRE fund was at 50k when we were about 37-38, about 10 years ago (IRA/401k) We started in our lates 20's with 2 kids, one income, and just getting started like many others... We are now at about 280k in 401k/ira and taxable investments, and about 450k in investment/rental real estate equity at age 49. Our FIRE window might be opening in about 2 years m/l. Work hard and keep your eye on the prize... that and a little luck will get you there.
