If the house is uninhabitable and landlord hasn't repaired it he could eventually sue but that doesn't solve his immediate problem. ...

re: I think I did a damn good solid deed to someone tonight - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Tons of people make bad decisions. That doesn't mean they don't warrant help. I'm surprised to see how many people left their vehicles behind and lost them. I've also heard too many cases where people had no renters insurance. But if you have the means to help someone recover from their mistakes...

re: I think I did a damn good solid deed to someone tonight - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Good on you for trying to help. It's hard not to assume you're just being scammed these days. Sometimes people don't know how to access charities or they're not responsive enough with immediate assistance. A few weeks after Michael I encountered 3 young adults from New Orleans along Hwy 98 outs...

re: Do people still plan on retiring at 65? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Just consistently lived below our means. Maxed TSP (401k) and Roth IRAs and then some mostly in low cost index funds for past 15+ years. Paid off mortgage on starter home early, drove cars for 10 years and avoided debt. Earned a military pension and funded kids' future college expenses with GI bill...

re: Do people still plan on retiring at 65? - TorchtheFlyingTiger
I plan on retiring at 45 I'll probably work part-time but won't need to. I achieved financial independence at 41 but decided to work a few more years just to have extra cushion and delay drawing on investments. Retiring at 75 sounds like a wasted lifetime. I have a million things I'd rather do...

re: Radio personality - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Dave Ramsey, don't know why I still listen other than it's like financial Jerry Springer and a mindless escape while I'm running. The millionaire theme hours are now my favorite. ChooseFI podcast, guests from various personal finance blogs share their ideas and experiences....

re: In game Falcons melt - TorchtheFlyingTiger
That sounds exactly like something the one die hard Falcons/UGA fan I've known for over 20 years would say and believe it. He's constantly espousing conspiracy theories especially ones centered around sports being rigged or anything Obama related. And the toilet bowl comment is just his style of lo...

re: What’s better: Retirement scenario - TorchtheFlyingTiger
Who's paying a 90% pension after 25 years? If this is your idea of a "medium level plan" what's a high end plan, 110% after 15 years? ...

To there are a lot of Airmen devastated by this storm as well as a largely poor and middle income population in Parker, Callaway, Panama City, Lynn Haven. With all the news coverage of the beaches and vacation homes I worry most people are going to think it's just a bunch of rich folks down there th...

[quote] We got in to Lynn haven, Tyndall and PC off of 77 and there are no roadblocks. [/quote] Can you clarify? Did you manage to get base access or just drive through on 98? I'm still hearing it could be days before we are able to get back to salvage items from homes on the base....

We're evacuated to NO from Panama City, currently in a hotel in Gretna. We have a 5 and 7 year old who have been cooped up in a hotel for almost a week and anxious about the state of our house (we are/were living on Tyndall AFB, no specific news about it but aerial pics show a roof 75% intact at lea...
