SmartMoney magazine (October 2007) calls Paul and Vicki Terhorst the “George and Martha Washington of cashing out.” They retired in Argentina in 1984 at the very early retirement age of 35. In 1988, Bantam Books (now Bantam Doubleday Dell) published their book, “Cashing In on the American Dream: How to Retire at 35,” now a classic. In 1992 Paul and Vicki became perpetual travelers, PTs, even though in 2005 they built a small house in rural Argentina to use during the summer. We last ran into Paul and Vicki in Panama, where they crewed on a friend’s sailboat across the Panama Canal.
