I'm sure it feels good to have the decision made and to get on with life.

Congratulations on getting Fedilty's sticky fingers off your 'stache. I recently did the same with Merrill Lynch and Northwestern Mutual. I felt the same, embarrassment, for ever letting myself fall into their hands. But, onward and upward now. Here is the thread.

I wish you every success.

Congrats on getting away from the manages funds - they fleece people through fear and uncertainty.  Taking control takes guts!

Re: contracting - its the right choice because it lets you decompress more slowly and at your own pace.  Eventually even the contracting work will seem like too much of a hassle and then you will truly be ready to FIRE. 

2 excellent choices - thank you for the update!
