Never Miss a New Post.
We are a married military couple; I’m active duty and she works for a Fortune 500 company. We are pursuing FI to RE (Financial Independence to Retire Early). In less than 15 years of marriage we went from having close to $200,000 in debt to almost a two million dollar net worth. After almost 25 years of military service, we are getting ready to retire and start our next journey. We hope to be at "our" version of FIRE in three years, so we can choose to continue to work, retire or something in between. Having that choice is what FIRE is all about.
WE LOVE TO TRAVEL. That's been a passion from the early parts of dating, we have loved to go on trips, short excursions and week long trips. While living in North Carolina, we loved to take weekend trips to Asheville, NC, Charleston, SC, and Savannah, GA. Lately, we've found peace taking weekend trips to the beach in Wilmington, NC. We've travel to Hawaii, Mexico, St. Lucia, Barbados, Virgin Islands, Costa Rica, Greece, Italy, Spain, France, and other parts of Europe. For us, FAT FIRE means having the means to go on those types of trips.
