Tempted to start gofundme to get me the Hell outta Portland! LOL!
With all the BS going on now and the blocking of the interstate yesterday I've about had it! Fuckers!

So, I've been planning on getting out for a while and heading to the Ozarks where I can afford to buy a house using my VA loan. I've got a non-service related disability pension. it's not much but it's enough.

A year ago my credit score was 560, now it's 680 - 700, because I don't use credit, but I'm playing their game.

I've been informally pre-approved for ~ $75k through Veterans United but would like to get $90k. That's only ~ $450/mo and I pay much more than that for rent now. I figure I'll still 'pay' the same amount as I do now, the rest going into Repair & Renovation fund for the house.

If I had a better vehicle I'd probably go now but don't think my 1997 Honda Accord station wagon will get me that far. It's got 230,000 miles and has a bunch of little issues like any old honda.

I figure I'm gonna need ~ $3.5k - $5k for a vehicle and another $5k for appliances & furniture, closing costs, etc etc once i get into a house. Not going to rush into a house but I did find a nice one I'd just love. :)

I'm just venting, that shit last night on the interstate set me off.

one nice thing about GLP, you can start a vent thread and it'll soon fade away chuckle

sigh ... another 24 months and I'll be ready

not really doing the gofundme thing but it crossed my mind. i could put it on r/Portland and piss off a bunch of SJWs. That might do it.

No way you raised your credit score that high and that fast in a year

yes i did. maybe it wasn't that low, honestly don't remember. never gave a rip about credit score until i got serious about buying a house.

2 credit cards, always pay off in full every month

looking back on C.K. it was 624 April 24th, now 702 (equifax)

I got a nice Prius and sienna van off Portland Craigslist for under $2000 each last year. Just find a kid who got mom's car, they don't believe in cars there.

Screw the furniture budget. I thrift stored and craigslisted whole house of furniture. Then charitied it as I replaced.

During the cancer tour we rented small apartments and used camping furniture near the hospitals.

At $1500 a mounth for rent you should get out of Portlandastan now!
