Have you considered OTR truck driving for a couple of years? You own little, get paid to live and drive in the truck, spend lots of time alone and see the country. You can save up a fair amount of FRNs in a few years and then achieve your goal with ease.

Seemingly your father nor mother taught you that as a man, it's your job to protect and provide for women and lead strong families. As men, had you done your job, you wouldn't be living in a matriarchal society.

It's far more expensive to rent than to own in the long run.

How much is your happiness worth?
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76384217


Not far more.

How much is spent on mowing by a homeowner in a lifetime? I spend about $400 a year probably. That's $16,000 in 40 years. You will replace your roof once or twice so add $5,000.

You will buy every appliance 4 times. Add $9,000.

New flooring probably once. Repaint the place probably once. Plumbing problems? Septic or a well...more costs.

Assuming appreciation of your home you will come out ahead. But that may not really be something that should be assumed now that we have a negative birth rate.

I live better than billionaires on 30k a year, seriously. For example they float around on a yaught where they don't even get wet. I float on a tube, have river otters swim by me, get out eat figs and berries fresh from the tree/bush.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 75598709


Ohhhhhhhhhh to swim and float with the otters - you are the richest man or woman that I know today! Your wealth is incalculable!!

so a friend gave me a Coleman spring loaded cot with a 2" pad on top and I slept on it last night. not bad. I'm thinking when I move I'll throw the bed out and add another 3" memory foam to the cot and sleep on it.

Mine is 20 years old with 335K miles on it. It's my daily driver. The van has almost as many miles and I only use it when I need to for hauling or camping.

Everything's bought cash or not at all. I see no point in traveling unless it will get you laid.

I lived like that for nearly 20 years though, hotel rooms, all of my belongings in a tiny bag, working mostly in tourism etc... Sounds good, alot of people dream about it, but you really start to miss your creature comforts.

Sounds like someone who is homeless. When it gets down to basics running clean water for a hot bath or shower, roof overhead, fire in fireplace on cold snowy days, company of a beloved spouse, cats and dog, eat simply and a home that is paid for works best for us.
The truth is incontrovertible. Malice may attack it, ignorance may deride it, but in the end, there it is.

You, as a slave, will be allowed to buy nothing, own nothing, you'll live cheaply in a small closet, you will eat crap, your children will be taken and taught to be slaves, far away from you and we will brainwash you into calling it freedom.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 76384217


Your happiness is owning land and a home, having an inheritance for your children.

Its not owning nothing and then when you're older all the rentals are more than your income and your kids are homeless.

You'd want to off yourself.

Happiness is providing for your family and solving problems to ensure that no one is homeless. And being creative and sharing time together along the way.
