Re: Trail building

When I was 17 I was in the YCC. I spend all summer living in a tent and building/repairing trails in the Gunnison national forest. That was a spectacular summer. Hard work, but I was 17 and camping everyday. What fun that was!

Re: About the SC shooting

At it's root this incident appears to spring from feminist policies to lock men up if they don;t support women in the manner to which they are accustomed.

If you have a kid - you should support it. That's just the right thing to do.

Re: Things Early Retirees Agree On

Sure you do. Conservatives built this country to what it is today. It didn't get there by socialism , for sure.

Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Abraham Lincoln, Dwight Eisenhower - All liberals. The list is endless.

Re: About the SC shooting

Curious how a man behind in his child support payments would be in the middle of buying a Mercedes. (see video.)

That isn't curious at all. It's called being selfish. However, there usually isn't a death penalty for being selfish.

Re: Fees Matter More Than Asset Allocation

Do fees matter more than the tax break in your 401K?

Loosen up and laugh.

Well, there we go again. I did laugh. And then I gave you a snarky eye roll reply where you were supposed to laugh.

Dieing is easy.

Did you mean "Dying is easy," or "Dieting is easy"?


Well, given the context of the discussion, what did you think I meant?

And you're probably not a great big fat hunk of bologna like me.

No - I'm not. I'm 52 and rode my mountain bike 47 miles last weekend.

Re: Cheap annuity

Besides which who knows how long I'm going to live?

The crossover age between taking it at 62 and full retirement age or 70 is about 81. If you think you will live past 81, or far past 81, it is worth it to wait. If you don't think [more]

On Topic: IRA, 401K

My company has a 401K - the fees are high, greater than 1% for most funds. I was contributing to get the match, and then upped it to get the tax deduction.

I also have a Roth IRA, and a rollover IRA from a previous job.

I was [more]

Re: Body Weight Workouts

Try planks. They work pretty much all the core and some of these variations also strengthen back muscles.

Thanks - those are helpful

Re: Body Weight Workouts

For back, you can do good mornings, bent rows/flies, locust/superman, bridge. You can do reverse flys on a stability ball, too. Actually lots of stuff on the ball, google back exercise and stability ball.

All of your ideas are good, [more]

Colonoscopy Shenanigans

I had a colonoscopy in December - everything is fine and nothing found. A diverticuli or two, nothing out of the ordinary. I probably need to increase my fiber intake.

I get a bill for $725.

What's this, I ask? This is covered as a [more]
