Three or Four More Years

That is what I am looking at. I ran the numbers yesterday looking at some ways for a possible end game. Yet, not really an end game, more like a transition game.

You see, my plan is to buy some land (a quarter section minimum) and start a town. 

The plan is to start a homestead and a small farm and grow the community from there. After all, you have to be able to feed people, that is vital and basic.

Yet, in order to do that, you need cash for basic equipment and building materials to build that town, quarters, a mess hall, and a workshop at least, to get started. 

I have been debating if I should save up, buy the land then save up again (as that land sits while I still work here, nowhere near where said land would be).

The other plan is to save up enough to buy the land and be able to do something with it. Thereby, just driving off in search of said land to build that town, just go and do it.

No matter who I slice it, I am looking at 3 more years and even then that would put me in the summer (late July) of 2021.

That is a silly time to drive and start this journey, so most likely I would delay half a year and start off in April of 2022.

These thoughts were a double edged sword, for me. On one hand it is nice to see tangible, realistic projections for a dream of mine. 

Yet on the other hand it is also depressing to think of 4 more years of living in this RV only to drive, find land, park Wanda and . . . wait for it . . . continue to live in this RV as I start the homesteading process.

That is why I am now graciously accepting . . . (I can’t even finish that sentence). If someone likes the idea of this town and is good at fundraising, contact me, otherwise I will trudge on ahead, as I always do.

As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
