I'm not broke yet, but if this slide doesn't stop, I may have to stop flying. Maybe even sell the airplane, or at least move it out of the hangar to a tie-down spot. Last December, a friend of mine finally made the decision to retire as of Mar 31. It was a tough decision but he calculated that he should have enough of a nest egg to retire at 66. He has now lost a huge percentage of that nest egg and doesn't have the option to keep working since he has already hired and trained his replacement.
