Well we just took the next big leap and sold our in town house and bought and moved out to our new homestead/retreat property. It is 150 acres of mixed farm land and bush with barns, large comercial grade garage (I am a mech by trade) and house. Outdoor furnace heating, very good well and septic. I am picking up our 10kw non electronic (gas unfortunately) back up Genny this coming weekend and starting to do the renos and updating it requires to bring it up to our standards of living both now and post SHTF. Let the adventure begin. We have also paid down a lot of our debt now and are going to avoid credit as much as absolutely possible.
