I'm not out, till I'm out.

If I'm lucky I'll get fired next year ;)

Sounds great.  Thank you for your long term commitment of service.  Have fun with the next chapter.
Thank you for the well wishes!  I'm very much looking forward to the next chapter!

You had to give 12 months notice? Here in the North it's just 6.
9-12 months is the window before the desired retirement date to formally request separation from the military.  This gives the human resources folks time to work their processes and find a replacement for me.  I submitted my request at 12 months out to give me more time to go through my medical evaluations and document all the ailments I've picked up over 20 years of military duty.  I checked with HR, and they already sent my paperwork up.  If there are no major issues I will know in about 45 days whether my retirement date is approved or not.  Here's to mid-October!!  Woohoo!!  :-)

Exactly 9 months from today to my target first full day of FIRE.

I have various countdown clocks and the clock counting working days (including holidays) just hit 100 days to go. In 'real' time it is still 6.5 months away but it is starting to feel genuinely close. I think the feeling of being on the home straight will really ramp up in early December when we have our year-end discussions. best of luck to all as we head towards the final quarter of the year.

I'm "officially" joining this group. I just confirmed today with my manager that I will kick off a 12 week sabbatical either 1/25/19 or 2/25/19. After the sabbatical, if we are both willing and find something interesting & well scoped, I will consider part time. Otherwise, that will be the end! Woohoo!!! 136 working days, but only 81 days if I count vacation days & paid holidays. . . . SO.CLOSE.

Awesome!  Welcome @MaybeBabyMustache!  So I will put you down for 2/25/19; let us know if the date gets moved up.   It IS close!

Hit one of my goals on the last paycheck! I maxed out my pto bank. It now sits at 60 days off. Surprised at how fast this year is going, but there are still plenty of times in the moment when it doesn't seem fast enough lol.

Welcome.  12 weeks off sounds fab.  Coming back would be HARD!

@Loren Ver - there is pretty much no chance I come back full time. But, would consider a part time option if it made sense. And, the great news I don't need to come back at all if a part time option isn't appealing. Totally agree, it's going to be interesting to see how hard it might be to come back. I'm guessing. . . super hard! :-)

Haha, it took awhile! 4.5 years to be exact. Nice to have in my back pocket.

Trifele, thanks for keeping the list updated!

Sure thing Mark!  I'm on the forum a lot -- it's my lifeline right now during this last period before FIRE -- so my pleasure to keep the list rolling.

Glad to hear things are going well for you.  I also plan to be much busier after FIRE.  :)

Six months and two days until notice - I'm actually 3/19/2019, they changed the calendar slightly on my restricted stock so that date of 3/8 is eleven days off

Eventful times.

A small slither of opportunity has opened up for me to negotiate a severance.

There is the first hints of talk that my office might be closed next year. I donít really believe it will happen, just the Group CFO sounding off as a result of our crappy sales performance, but if they do decide to close our office I will be in a good place to negotiate something so that I will stay till the end and not walk too soon.

Things could dovetail nicely.

However, I would much prefer that we have some commercial success in the coming 9 months and I leave a hero, rather than being the guy that locks the door after firing everyone.

.... and there is always the risk that they will close the office but what to retain and relocate me. That would be the worst outcome 😜. Who would ever have thought that being wanted by your employer could be the worst outcome

.... well I suppose the worst outcome is that they decide someone else can lock the doors and they just fire me with no severance. My anger would be boundless in this scenario after the crap I have endured of late, but big corporates are not always known for being fair.

Eventful times

Got you fixed, ChasesFish.

That is exciting Itchy.  Same boat here -- this week has been super interesting.  Rumors flying about a round of voluntary layoffs offered by MegaCorp (which I would be all over in a hot second), and then contrary rumors circulating that there will be no volunteer aspect -- I'll just have to fire people and then potentially get my own walking papers.  I care about my co-workers and would prefer not to be the hatchet man . . .  And of course I'd like to leave with some extra cash if possible.  But whatever happens, I'm done soon.

Hi, Iím popping in here from the 2020 cohort. In the past year, our income (and therefore savings) has increased, and the markets and our RE investments have been doing well, so it looks like we will be hitting our FIRE target early (barring any catastrophic crash).

We are aiming for July 1, 2019 as our new FIRE date (age 38).

If that happens, Iíll have to change my username to Freedomin4 (2015 was when we first got serious about FIRE-ing, and when we first started making decent enough income to accelerate the process).

Welcome!!  As discussed previously, we are the best cohort and the coolest!

:)
And also by far the most modest!

Thanks for the warm welcome! Yes, you guys are by far the humblest people Iíve ever met. Seriously though, Iím glad to be here. :)

Coolest, most modest and best looking.

Happy you are here!

And smartest...you forgot smartest.

Maybe I was being modest...

Okay no, I totally forgot smartest.  :D.

Oh Itchy that is a weird spot, and you wont really know until it materializes.  Good luck!

I've pretty much been informed my group is safe.  I am really glad for my team!  Then again, in corporate, safe always has the "for now" attached.  The layoff with severance would have been nice, but sometimes I feel like I would rather walk then be let go.  That way I get to say goodbye and such (very few people know my plans) and don't just get escorted out one day.

I am so glad we are sitting on this end and not the other end, where we worry about our jobs because there is no near end.

Good planning y'all.

Okay, I'm committing. I added myself above on July 3.

%$#@  This feels way too real now. I'm nervous as hell...nervous about the market dropping, and nervous about healthcare coverage.

   I shall be joining you fine folks in the 2019 class most likely with a firm date of 3/31/2019 as last day of working for megacorp. Really should just call it now but reasons and all that. There is also a non-zero chance that I just quit on any given day via flipping my badge in the pond, mooning the security cam, and firing up a bong in the parking lot. (Just kidding but there is also a non-zero chance of that).

Most definitely this! I'd probably crack open a bottle of nice champagne, but I'd be right there with you, and have had many days of considering just ripping the badge off & running.

So I'm on call this weekend, and I went in for a few hours this morning. We're getting ready for a surgery case, and the following conversation ensues...

CW1: "Sparechange, you sure have been on call a lot lately!"
Me:   "Yeah, it's good money, but it's only for another 6 or 7 months."
CW1: "What happens in 6 months?"
Me:    "I plan on going PT."
CW1: "Why are you going to do that??"
Me:    "Well, I'm sort of semi-retiring."
CW1: "Whaaaa????"
CW2: With eyes bulging...,"What!? You're too young for that!"

We talked a little more, but it's the reactions that were golden. Felt good.

I'll be right there with both of you -- sprinting to the nearest pub for a celebratory round, and then away to freedom.

EDITED to add:  Decided I'm not gonna make it to 4/1/19, and have moved myself on the spreadsheet to 2/1/19.  Added bonus -- it's before my birthday, so I get to be a whole year younger on paper when I retire!

Welcome to the team those that have just joined. 

We might be the smartest cohort, among many other admirable traits!  Glad to add you!

Trifele you are making me totally jealous.  By waiting for DH to retire on his birthday, I have to be a whole year older.  Boo.  Loren people problems :(.

According to the countdown app on my phone, I have 232 days, 6 hours, 44 mins and 40 seconds!

Today was an ANYTHING else day.  I did not want to go to work.  I didn't feel great and just wanted to stay home. 

Soon!  34 weeks as of today.

I hear you!! ANYTHING ELSE PLEASE! 😂

I am resenting having this FIRE ambition burning inside me. It is really negatively impacting my mood in the office.

I wish I could just snap out of my funk.

I want to leave work on a good note, just in case I change my mind after some extended time off.

But, sadly, I am like an angry and frustrated ant at work these days. All of the pressure, politics and BS is driving me nuts, amd rather than push through it like a hot knife through butter, as I once did, I now find the BS all swirling around me and pushing down on top of me. Itís exhausting to be drowning in a swamp of shit when you have given up swimming.

I remember when I was young and ambitious and the future was mine.

Today, the future in the office is certainly not mine, my mind is elsewhere....  and whilst FIRE sounds like a dreamy future I am not there yet. Even when I get there, I still have many hurdles to clear before I can transition into my new life (repatriation, selling property, finding a new town to live, buying a new home, making friends and a life somewhere new).

The waiting and the uncertainty about the future is getting to me. Sometimes I think it would be easier, and cause no additional loss of happiness (whatever that means) to reset my sights on chasing career ambitions for another 20 years like ďnormalĒ people. Itís not like my life is bad. Itís pretty awesome actually. If only I could adjust my mindset at work at little to make the most of the next 9 months.

274 days to go....

Feeling you itchy.  I don't know how I would make it if I had 20+ years to go.  Maybe i'd just go into resignation.   The good news is, at work I have a job I am good at and I am being given opportunities to really shine in front of high level management.  Something I would have loved over the past 10 years where I had bad leadership and no visibility.  But at the same time, it doesn't really matter anymore.  Those buds will never bloom as I will be done and gone. 

Oh well, at least it keeps me busy, even if a little bored....

I am right there with both of you, LorenVer and Itchy.  Anything else -- please.  I feel sick to my stomach on my way to work, and my TMJ pain is off the charts.  All of that magically vanishes on the weekends.  According to one of my many countdown clocks, I have 81 work days to go . . . 134 days overall . . .  I do my best to gut out the days, then I go home and color another piece of my FIRE picture, hang out with my kids, and heal enough to get up the next morning and do it again.  I wish I could turn this off and go back to how I felt a year or two ago, but I think the burning FIRE feeling is here to stay.   

I hear you about the buds never blooming, Loren.  I'm older than you, but I am right at the top of my game and in a great place professionally.  In another life, if things were different, I could continue to rise and really shine.  There is a part of me that is sad about walking away from that, but that sadness is dwarfed by my overwhelming desire to be free and be done.  I can see the door right in front of me.  I don't know exactly what's on the other side, but I'm ready to walk through it.

I guess you can take me off the list or add an asterisk or something. My company made the decision for me when they cut all contractors at the end of July. I've got no debt, a condo rental making $11k gross/year, single no kids/dependents and can live fine with 3% SWR of invested assets. Still afraid of stopping all work at the age of 51 so I'm leaving the door open for more contracting work (work from home only).

I remember earlier on when I thought and was convinced that it would be so much easier to handle/ignore/put up with the BS once I was close to FI or FIRE bc I would know that I could always just leave (which is true).....but the unfortunate reality is that I have significantly less tolerance and patience for it all so it is more like being a cage animal waiting to be released.

I can sympathise with all of the feelings above.  The last few months were a real killer for me, but then one day you wake up and you are nearly there.  You tell your boss you are going and you start that final glide to freedom.  My last day of full time work will be 5 weeks today and I'm already feeling as free as a bird!

I guess you can take me off the list or add an asterisk or something. My company made the decision for me when they cut all contractors at the end of July. I've got no debt, a condo rental making $11k gross/year, single no kids/dependents and can live fine with 3% SWR of invested assets. Still afraid of stopping all work at the age of 51 so I'm leaving the door open for more contracting work (work from home only).

Congrats on your OLY MoneyStacher! I see you were aiming for 1/1/19 - sounds like financially you are there and then some!  Keep us posted on how you are doing!   : 0 )

May I offer you both condolences and congratulations? You are free, and it sounds like you are in a good spot financially.

I think I want to be back in this cohort. Plan is to fire somewehere September/Octoberish 2019.

DH and I went through my FIRE spreadsheet again today, which was a long time since last time. DH discovered a flaw in my calculation of taxation of income. We corrected it and luckily it didn't change the FIRE amount, as our income will be almost zero all the time.

We have had 2 real estate brokers visiting our house who gave us an estimate for a sales price of our clown house. One gave an estimate of 8,7 mil Norwegian crowns. The other one guessed a price between 8,7 and 9,2 mil crowns. In my old calculations I used a conservative estimate of 7 mil crowns nett leftover after sale. Now we changed this amount to 8 mil nett leftover after sale. We think about selling it in spring 2019 for 8,5 mil list price. And we hope to sell for more eventually. We need to sell during the summer halfyear because of the steep roads with snow in the winter.

After selling this house, we reserve half of it, 4 mil crowns, in cash for a future house purchase. The rest will be invested. Most in stock, but some in cash on a high interest bank account in case market downtime during FIRE. Or in bonds, I'll have to figure that out.
We still need to earn half our normal salary in 2019 and a very low amount in 2020. This last thing can be done be starting some side gig. DH is thinking on doing his current job as a private consultant occasionaly. I currently do a sidegig that generates a certain amount of taxfree money.

We are aiming for 7 mil Norwegian crowns as FIRE amount. If the house sells for the brutto price of 8,5 mil crowns, then we will reach this amount in just a few months. If the market takes a dive, we will have to continue working.

From 2040 we will both receive our pensions.

Our backup plan is that we intend to keep our cabin, but we can also sell it for approx 1,5 year spending level.
We can also in the future sell our future house, cash in those 4 mil crowns and live 8 years of that while we rent a place, depending on the height of the rent.
And we expect to receive 2,5 to 3 mil crowns in inheritage some day, that are not included in our calculations.
And we can choose to work part time some way or another.

Congratulations Linda.  Fingers crossed that it sells for the high end of the range.  Are house prices on the up generally and did you need to increase the amount set aside for purchase of your non-clown house?

@Trifele could you do me a favour please and correct my age to 52 in the list?  53  was from my original date of July 2019.  I pulled that forward to 31 Jan on the list when I will still only be 52.  This shouldn't bother me, particularly as I've pulled since my date forward to 2018, but somehow it bugs me more each time I read the list!

Of course @PhilB !  Done.
