I guess I'm on the oppisite side of the coin on this one. We will travel, how much depends on the economy - business. We have always been tied to it. This year we seem to be leaning on going. It still makes me nervous.
Slow economy - little money coming in. Good economy too much work to leave.
It was the same when I worked construction, laid off can't go on vacation, wears the money. Working full time or overtime can't go, can't take time off.
So for being young (50's) I have the work ethics of my Dad.
As for savings we are planning to have the kids out of college debt free. Then when we pass they will each have a sizable inheritance in a trust to start them off in their endeavors.
PS work hard, work smart, laugh at life and smaile when you can, more the better.
