So with all that is going on in the world, my plan to buy a home by this time next year is a bit murky, as in unclear.
I have actually given serious consideration building “The Armageddon Vehicle,” a “Monster Armadillo” of my own.
Something that is large, tough, self-sustainable, yet has all of the comforts of home; all so that I could stay mobile, yet stay comfortable.
Yet, that seems to be abandoning the future to be some “Mad Max” wasteland where you have to stay mobile and stay fast to stay alive.
I don’t want to live that way.
I still want my little place, wherever it is, whatever it is and have a place belong. Yeah, family of some sort would be nice ... would have been nice, rather.
So, while the long-term outlooks is murky, due to factors that are way out of my control, all I can do is control what is within my control.
One of the things that I have learned is that no matter how murky the Long-Term looks, what I need to do in the Short-Term remains the same.
I need to:
1. Get debt free ASAP
2. Build up a bit of Savings
3. Build up my Homestead Supplies
Then it gets murky . . . Do I:
• Get some place? (Rent even?)
• Buy a Dreaded Condo/Townhouse?
• Buy a Parcel of Land?
• Build The Armageddon Vehicle?
I really don’t know what is going to happen, but I do know that all of it hinges on doing the first three things on that list, at least the first two.
Yet even with regards to building up savings, I need to figure out how and where to put those savings and in what form they will take.
This is because the more I learn about banks and the financial system the less I trust them.
Regardless, my point is that while I will keep an eye on the future, on the Long-Term, I will work on the things that I need to get done in the Short and Medium-Term.
Those are things that I can control and they are the first steps before I do . . . whatever I will do in the Long-Term.
I still want a place of my own and a place to belong. And yeah, a family would have been nice.
