The corona virus is shattering my dreams. Please help!
I need some sage advice. I was planning to retire early and move to the ocean but now with the corona virus I am having second thoughts. My off grid house is about to sell and I am about to leave my six figure job. What do I do? Please no BS responses cause I don’t want to end up homeless or wandering the earth like in The Road.

1. Take my house off the market and buy 1,000 pounds of freeze dried food. If the economy crashes I probably won’t be able to sell my house for years. Keep working forever.
2. Sell my house and rent an apartment. Bank my money and hope the crisis ends in a year. If the dollar crashes I will never be able to retire.
3. Say F it, sell my house, retire, and not worry that the apocalypse may be underway. Ride and die.

Sounds like a LARP.

How about. Turn your house into a "homeless shelter" then make them your slaves!

If you are so worried about the Coronavirus what difference does it make where you live? Unless you live in the wilderness which might just give you another year or two, or you might be lucky enough to escape it altogether.
Or you could look at it this way, if you move to the coast you will probably be on grid and the plug could eventually get pulled due to a pandemic so you might be better staying in your off grid home, but that will probably not stop you from getting the Coronavirus, but it will give you lights and heating.

Doesn't have to be one OR THE OTHER choice, OP.

Why not just WAIT. You may have to pull your house off
the market in doing so...but if your area is a "buyer's
market" you won't lose anything by waiting 90 to 120 days
out--just to see how everything shakes out.

By Fall, we should ALL KNOW WHERE WE STAND and you can
make better choices that way.

That is my advice...I'm hunkering down where I am with
my family and hoping things will level off. My gut feeling,
however, is way more "doomy" than that.

Good luck to you! Remember...better to be scared than
"horrified" (you can't even FUNCTION if you are horrified)
so just calm down and "watch and SEE."

cheers
