Well, not quite yet; told the people at work that my last day is March 15. MI certainly helped me get to this point. Once I got to the "won the game" point I switched to a more conservative strategy (GTAA variant) that mostly will match (or slightly exceed) my benchmark (approx 40 US equity/20 foreign equity/25 US bond/15 foreign bond) and avoid the big drawdowns. Since I switched over about 8 years ago results have been as expected.

And in a couple-three years, you'll look back and say "I cannot BELIEVE that it's been 12 years since I walked out the door!"

18 fantastic years since I escaped! I enjoyed the actual engineering but not the environment.
As a friend who retired before me said after retiring "I didn't realize how much work got
in the way of my life"

Early congratulations! It’s been 26 years for me and I love it 😀

Also want to thank you for the work and spreadsheet you did for Fidelity Selects. I followed that successfully for several years.

I retired 32 years ago.

Living off my Real Estate (Half the year in San Diego and the other half in Hawaii), and still growing my equity assets with help from Marjory's Overlaps.

Hank from San Diego (I always imagined South Dakota), How do you use Marjory's overlaps? No one to my knowledge has posted on this board how they implement her data.

Hank once mentioned he had a spread sheet with several years of data.
And have you done a search using data helper?

How do you use Marjory's overlaps?

I will write up the process and post it, but that will take a while, so it may not be up for a day or so. Maybe a new thread.
