$5,000,000 ! No problem!
I know a coupla guys in Bay Area who 'retired' in their late 30's. One is an elderly vet who went in at 18 and left with pension at 38, and has only worked part time-ish ever since. He got several degrees (courtesy of the gov), did a lot of sailing, and has wound up in a beautiful manufactured home. He was married twice to women who had some dough, and spent two years sailing around the world with one of them. Has a porsche, but I scratch my head at how he has managed to do all this when he was a dirt poor kid. A lot of it has been on the largesse of his military career from the day. I doubt that he ever had an equivalent of a 5 mill nest egg, maybe a couple of hundred thou.
the median household in come in California is about $68k. Somehow half the households (not just people) living in the "number 5 economy in the world" can manage to live on that paltry amount.
I've seen a few guys like this but most the time they are getting side money from VA for bogus disability.
Females around me heard I had money and then received an inheritance; they are annoying because they think like communists that I should "help" them achieve their goals. I disagree. I was a big mouth with one and she told her friends at work, and so on and so on...
