I am a former teacher who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and am now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about me, this Business Insider profile tells the story pretty well.
I (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out the Now page to see what I'm up to currently.

I'm proud to announce that I've joined the Class of 2015 as an alumni, rather than pending graduate.

Thanks for your support and encouragement everyone.

Congratulations!!! Talk about a truly euphoric last day of school! (You are/were a teacher, right?) As a fellow teacher-couple, I bow down in awe and admiration.

Nice. I am so happy for you. But after reading some of your comments on another thread, I am also sad for your students, they are losing a fantastic teacher.

Congratulations!  You've helped countless numbers of us on our journies to FIRE, and I'm glad you've now made it to your own (which, of course, is just the beginning of another journey).

Thank you for all you've done for this community (but I hope this won't be the last we'll be seeing of you!).  You're a real mensch.
