re: At what age did you become a millionaire - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 6/9/18 at 11:45 pm
[quote]Those of you who made $1M (without inheriting it), how did you get there?[/quote] We simply live below our means, avoid debt, save most of my raises along the way and limit lifestyle inflation.

re: What to do with my Roth? - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 5/29/18 at 8:14 pm
A simple option would be to transfer it to Vanguard and buy into a low expense ratio mutual fund such as S&P 500 Admiral Shares (VFIAX). An S&P 500 index fund spreads your your investment across 500 of the large US traded companies and you'll get returns approximating the stock market average. ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (2)
re: Battlefields of WWI fading into greenery - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 5/29/18 at 6:37 pm
The Europeans have plenty of battlefield tourism. There are museums and battle sites all over the place. I've visited battlefields of Normandy, Battle of the Bulge, Operation Market Garden, Maginot line forts, St Mihiel, Verdun, Bellau Wood, Waterloo and many lesser known sites. They all had gift ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: Battlefields of WWI fading into greenery - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 5/29/18 at 6:11 pm
I went on a tour of several WWI sites with NATO staff officers. At one sight our guide was digging up partially exposed unexpended rifle rounds. He'd pry them open, pour out the powder and light it off to demonstrate the why we needed to be vigilant, stay on marked paths and not disturb anything t...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)
re: Am I being too stingy with mortgage payment? - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 5/26/18 at 9:35 am
If you can swing the extra 5%, you may be better off with a conventional loan. The key benefit of VA if avoiding PMI but you pay for that benefit with a 2.15% funding fee. Shop around to see if you can actually get a better rate on the VA loan to offset the added cost....Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (1)

[quote]all he mentioned was he was in the Air Force. Went right after he graduated.[/quote] I'm sure he has some good stories and perspective to share. It would have been awesome to have met him when I was a cadet over 20 years ago. I bet no one in the AFROTC Det even knows he's out there. If he'...

re: How to confuse a conveniece store clerk ! - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 4/28/18 at 10:32 am
If there's no line and I've got cash I'll let my first grader pay then ask him how much change he should get back. Usually they're just nice and encourage him but occasionally the clerk seems genuinely shocked & amazed that a child can do simple math without the register giving him the solution. A ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: What are the point of public libraries anymore? - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 4/19/18 at 6:47 am
I took my 7 year old to the library yesterday. He loves it and is an avid reader. We own tons of books but he's more enthusiastic about reading the ones he picks from the library. He gets his own card and learns to be responsible not to lose or damage books and return them on time. We're not poo...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
re: AAA - is it worth it? - TorchtheFlyingTiger on 4/15/18 at 8:14 pm
Just shopped this recently for our kid driving an older truck off at school. Decided to go w USAA tow/roadside assistance instead for approx $2 /month. The few times we've used it ourselves over the years the service was great but only covers 15 miles or so. If you're traveling long distances AAA...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
