JB: good work. I didn't do any math, but I'm guessing that with the real estate investments you'll be sitting on significant assets in retirement. You might have to work at 60 or might not, depending on which way the wind blows. I think you're doing everything right. I can't suggest a thing. By that time you'll probably have nailed the mortgage to the wall like a scalp, your savings are vast (perhaps a little too vast, but if they give you a comfort zone, I'm the last one to tell you to put them into riskier stuff).

You might consider landbanking: buying a lot in an area near a growth region, waiting for it to appreciate. Perhaps buy it somewhere you might like living someday part of the year, so that you have a couple of options for it.
