    Default Thank you all!

    I've been lurking for a number of years now, and I don't believe I ever posted before, primarily because I am overwhelmed by the knowledge all of you have which has taught me much and helped shape my investment decisions. I log on here daily, multiple times, and many of you it feels like I know you. Funny how boards work like that.
    Like Dreamboat Annie, would I like to party with you. Ravensfan, you live near me if you are in the Port...ever go to South County Brewery in Fawn Grove? We should get together for a ride. Clester, Whipsaw, Fireweather, Amoeba and too many to mention...wow what a group.
    What I have learned is everyone of you know a lot, research a lot, study charts and graphs, and the ones I think are making a killing aren't, and others are.
    But I have to say, I took Birchtrees advice mostly...buy buy buy and hold. Everytime I tried to bail to safety, I missed out. And many times I got back in, I got in too late. Sticky pants sticky pants, sit on my hands. I got it....and it paid off.
    Today I hit 1 million after being in TSP since the beginning... what, 30 years? Heck 20% of that has been in the last year.
    3 more years to retirement, so now what do i do? Keep hand sitting or park it in G for the next 3 years?
    Hmm, wonder what BT would say. I kinda think I know
    Thank you all, you all play a part at least in my world of investing. And right now I am still %50 S, 25 I, 25 L2050 (which was fairly recent, kinda like a more prosperous G fund...or so I tell myself.)

    Woo Hoo!!!
    You joined the TSP Millionaires club!
    I just made it yesterday! I think a lot of people must have made it in September.
    I was a little reluctant to say anything for fear of jinxing the market.....but since you broke the news already, I don't feel responsible if it happens!

    About time you posted shovelhead, what took you so long? You have done well with your TSP and all of us would like to do the same. Best of luck with your TSP and your life.
