Do you guys ever play with the FIRE calculators? I just spent 20 minutes today dreaming. Thought it would be fun. Interesting stats.

We retire at age 53 and 55 in 2034. Without saving another penny or counting on SS $0 we can retire with our current portfolio at $105k/year. That's almost enough to cover our spending. That includes only our taxable/retirement portfolio not counting our home equity in anyway. 100% success for 50 years (we live long in our families so hitting 90s is highly likely).

Assuming we save for the next 14 years $30k (maxing out 401k and Roth IRA) we can generate $135k/year. This is very feasible. If I include SS it goes up to $150k/year. I'm pretty happy and ready to hang up for DH. Guess the question is will he hang it up?

Do you ever play around with retirement calculators? I am 41 and retirement still seems so far away but it's really not It's less than 15 years from where I think we will be.
