    Sure, I paid into it and I get statements, it's included in any serious planning or revision.
    My retirement doesn't in any way depend on it, and I may lose a lot of the benefit if I retire early.

    Well, I certainly couldn't retire right now.

    But the reason I don't ever see myself retiring is because I would get bored as hell.

    Keep in mind my figures also include my wife's lifelong investments as well. We are NOT anywhere near wealthy. The bottom could drop out, she could run off and take 1/2 my ****, or I might get a case of ookienookie and it cost me every dime I got. I still live week to week like most other folks do. I STILL have 11 years before those anticipated numbers are realized. Anything could happen between now and then.

    Bah, nothing right now.
    Live in a town house.

    Thought about growing shrooms, just for ****s and giggles.
    Plus my kid would get a kick out of learning the inoculation process and prepping the growing media.
    I don't actually do shrooms.

    That's one way to do it.

    Media is just the "dirt" for growing it.
    Could be wood shavings or something like that.
    It has to be sterile, before you inoculate it with spores though.

    well, it sounds like you are on the right track. and if you get a case of ookie-nookie, you deserve to lose it all!
