Ten Years Is Enough

So, I have been thinking, since Winter is coming again, and with it all the fun that it brings, how long I really want/should live this lifestyle.

For me, it has always been a means to an end, a way to free up cash in my monthly budget so I could get debt free.

At first it was the airy-fairy dream of getting credit card debt free (that was the hardest and took the longest, by the way).

Then it was to focus hard and pay off the rest of my debts so as to become totally debt free. I did that almost two years ago (two years as of the 22nd of this month).

I am still doing this so I can buy something, as in either land and build on it, or buy an acreage somewhere. In both cases I want to have some cash left over.

I could keep doing this indefinitely and keep putting ever more cash in the bank. For me, I am looking forward to that next step in the journey, of having a home, of having land.

So, I will make my current target by the summer (my best guestimate) of 2024, and in so doing I will have lived in my trailer, in Wanda for ten years by then.

I think that will be a long enough time to spend on this part of my life, on this phase of my journey. 

I will endure what I need to endure, but I will do so for another five years, and then I will move on (large crowdfunding campaign, lottery win, or large disaster fiscal or otherwise notwithstanding).

In all seriousness, to me that just feels right, as in to put an end date on this living in an RV, as I do want a home and land, I just don’t want the debt that typically goes along with it.

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