It is officially five years since I moved into Wanda full-time. Five years ago I backed my trailer up into the driveway of the house where I was renting a room.
I loaded up what stuff I had left into the trailer and drove off to McLean Creek to camp and make a home out of my trailer: Wanda.
This last year has seen me moving forward on this savings plan that is my Grand Savings Plan.
There have been successes and setbacks but for the most part it is on track. I am committed to making that town a success.
First I have to raise the funds to get the ball rolling. Since I suck at promotions and salesmanship, a crowdfunding campaign is out of the question.
Thus I am left to raising the funds from my own paycheque (thus the four more years living in Wanda).
This day is about celebrating and reflecting. Celebrating the fact that I have made another year living full-time in Wanda and reflecting on what I have achieved in that last year.
My savings is steadily growing and with the growth of that savings comes ever more options available to me. That and a smidgen more of security.
As in, I can live longer without a paycheque (if need be) with each extra bit I put into savings. That brings peace of mind, and that is a nice thing.
I am still committed to founding that town, but I am working on relaxing and being Content, yet not Complacent.
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
