Re: Social Security Jitters Anyone ??

I do not have second thoughts about having delayed so far. I will reach age 70 next year. For me, it is more important to have a higher assured income than to have received more in benefits payments over time. Others have different priorities. I suspect that before the Trust Fund is depleted that a...

Re: Social Security Jitters Anyone ??

No need to lock if people can stay away from political discussions. This is a big planning issue for people in their 50s.

Re: Sad Anniversary - Seeking Advice

I just want to wish you the best. Grieving is a long process, long after the initial shock and tears are gone. Sounds like you have the means to retire, and I’m sure BH experts will drill into your numbers with specific advice. Knowing your expected annual expenses would help. One thought - perhaps ...

Re: Which US city would you move to?

Prior posters gave a good flavor of what it’s like to live in high wind areas. Unrelenting wind makes you feel like you’re losing your mind. Living in a place that regularly gets hurricane-force winds, I’ve seen grills blown off decks, windows blown out of houses, and a huge roll-off trash dumpster ...

Last August many parts of Colorado were dealing with heavy smoke and airborne particulates due to forest fires. If you have asthmatics on the trip, make sure to plan some indoor options like the Denver Museum of Nature and Science. There are lots of mining museums scattered in the mountains, which m...

Re: Areas similar to Jungfrau region in terms of transportation

Just adding a note on getting around Netherlands. The buses, trains, and ferries were fun and convenient. However, we were surprised to learn intercity train lines occasionally stop service for maintenance on weekend nights. Perhaps these stoppages were announced somewhere beforehand, but it wasn’t ...

Re: Breaking away from VG PA - Help need with balance

I’d switch the REIT to one of your tax-advantaged accounts and put something more tax efficient like VTSAX in taxable accounts.
