XTN,

Thanks. I appreciate that. You've hit the nail on the head. The planning was easy while the discipline to stay on track month after month is always the real challenge and where many of us will ultimately fail.

I keep myself motivated by thinking constantly on how sweet it will be to turn those monthly mortgage payments into monthly income and I'm rewarded along the way as each house is paid in full. I've also had to avoid tiring out my generally frugal DW by being too extreme and making her suffer. ;-) We travel and enjoy life while avoiding unnecessary large purchases. It's working. The other hard part for me has been watching this Bull market charge forward while staying on the sidelines. It's just that I know my weaknesses and my personality requires that I be single-minded and focused on one thing at a time.

Anyway, I ramble.

Thanks again!
