Wow, awesome update! As a fellow front ranger, I'm so happy to see that it has worked out for you thus far. I hope to be in a similar position in a few years.

Really happy to hear your update.

Your situation is exactly the motivation I needed halfway through my boring cubicle workday.

what kind of toilet paper to buy were sources of friction.

Toilet paper friction. The worst kind of friction?

Seriously though, way to go COTribe.  Inspiring as I slog my way through another day at the office!

Hopper, you joke, but aren't too far from the mark. I come home from Costco with a six-month supply of eco-friendly TP with recycled fiber content and caught hell because it was not super plush.  Said it was too "scratchy".

Well the upside is you now have a 12 month supply of eco-friendly TP. ;)

Have just read through this whole thread - what a great story arc! So happy to hear that you quit and began embracing all that life has to offer.

Thanks for the kind words. This site helped inspire me to get serious about the possibility of FIRE about five years ago. Our journey is not complete, but sharing milestones and seeking support, knowledge and inspiration is why I visit this site regularly (though I seldom post). So far, things have worked out for the best, hope I can say the same in the years to come.

Exciting, well done!  Please keep posting once in a while.   

I can't agree more with your statement:
"good fortune has played a role, but sometimes you really do need to take step back to go forward."

Cheers and all the best!
