Nice work Taips.

At the rate I'm going, I will only be debt free if I sell my children to pay off the mortgage.

I've never got that bit about people not enjoying retirement.  It has always been my aim to retire as soon as humanly possible/practical.  The slowest day doing nothing has to me has always been less boring than the busiest day at work.
Aye, same here.  14 years, 1 month to go until I can get at my super, which thanks to working in a sector that pays well above the SG rate, should be fairly healthy.  I don't anticipate to get anything from the Govt by the time I retire...

You can't get the super early?

But then my brain is less active when at work then when at rest. Sometimes reading Bucky's posts was the only thing that kept me sane whilst trying to look busy sitting at my desk.

Yeah but to get max enjoyment out of Bucky you had to play with him a bit. Though I suppose that does require some effort. Might have defeated RD's purpose.

Well given the performance of the markets in the past year, it looks like at least another 3 years.
