Vagabond, I think you should do a little more research before making a final decision. Both of my parents ended up in nurseing homes which covered a span of 7 years. The annual cost rose from $30,000/yr. to just over $37,000/yr, during that time. Of course, you know your financial situation better than anyone else; but, what if something happened to you were you were unable to manage your portfolio as you do now, or the Bear shows up in the market place. Just look into it more and get some LTC quotes. You might just be that 1 in 10 thats in a home 5 years or more.
