ever get sick of balancing this shit? i'm close to selling almost everything and hiding in the mountains. my wife says she's not down with that but i'm sure i could persuade her with a nice, warm log home made by yours truly. my dad peaced out from van 18 years ago and headed to the island in a similar fashion with his girlfriend. quit his job, sold the house, bought a couple acres and lived in a shack for 17 years until he built his latest house. for all the odd looks and shit he took for doing that, i have to admire the fact he said "fuck this shit" and went his own way within a few percentage points of living off the grid. he still had real estate around bc as a back up but he never compromised that. anyways, the question is, what things would you change in your situation to maximize time/money/freedom?
