The quintessential example of such is Paul and Vicki Terhorst. They retired in their 30's and subsequently traveled around the world. Yet as of 1999, their daily expenses averaged $50 a day or $18k per year.

But aren't they a really extreme example of such as they relied on friends to cover much of their normal expenses (housing and such). And besides, wouldn't they have run out of money had they continued with their fixed-income-only investement strategy for much longer (and not have written well selling books) ?

In any case, they are to be admired as they took the plunge and did it !
