I took a buddy with me on a short road trip to Richmond, VA. We met my LT son there and we saw the documentary Playing With FIRE!

I also met and chatted briefly with Brad and Jonathan, the two guys behind

All of you reading this are hopefully investing. How many of you are after FIRE though?

Way back in 2003 I requested this board,

I'm 51 and I have a pension. So, technically I'm FI. However, since I've never had a lot, I'm on a quest to obtain true wealth. I have my small stock portfolio, but I'm now adding my 10th rental unit.

We all take different paths in life. My hope is that I can get up to 20-25 rental units in the next few years. From there,we shall see. That should improve our financial picture if I can get that many.

I hope everyone reading this can reach their own FI day sooner rather than later.

Oh,their are many ChooseFI Facebook pages. I'm behind one that is ChooseFI-Staunton. Feel free to request to join, but if you do, tell me you are from the Fool and I'll approve you.

Fool on,
