Re: $3000/mo cruising budget
I think both of these threads are saying pretty much the same thing. There is no magic amount of monthly income to cover all of the variables. (But of course some amounts are more magic than others) I think most of the examples of both of the threads are gentle kicks in the butt to individuals who are waiting for some magic number to aspire to, now they can tell themselves "now, I reached it, now I may go". A little shot of confidence if you will. I can relate to that. As you know I am in Nigeria, not exactly a garden spot however I can see retirement right around the corner. I want it to come. I am done. It is there, attainable but some of us are doing the howmuchwillineedtocoverthebases dance. Just a touch nervous. But if we can see him doing it (retire) her doing it, that may be all of the kick in the butt we need. I figure June of 15 I will be done with contract flying. I will be 57, nobody knows how many breaths we have left. I will keep you posted. Phuket, Krabbi, Ko Jun here I come....in the meantime a cup of coffee and time to go flying.
