Retirement Planning

The short version of why I need to retire sooner rather than later is that I have too many things I want to do that work gets in the way of.

The other piece is that I've see too many names I know in the obituaries, reminding me that life is short.

I have two criteria which should be satisfied in the next year - one involving frequent flyer miles and one involving how long I've been working at my company. I need to get somewhat more organized about the financial picture.

What I'm not worried about is how to fill my time. Things I have been googling in my spare time at work include the Florida Trail (kind of a shakedown for the Appalachian Trail) and the Camino del Santiago.
