Great piece of satire on anti-retirement complanypants. So great it even fooled me...

I've edited this post, but originally I took the article at face value. Silly me.

That reads like satire to me.
We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, spent some time traveling the world full time and are now settled with three kids.
If you want to know more about us, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.
We (rarely) blog at AdventuringAlong.com. Check out our Now page to see what we're up to currently.
