I have this weird idea....
But I'm serious about this.... Or at least trying it. Starting possibly this spring of 2017.
It goes like this. I don't have much money or anything but I still want to get out and experience all I can while I can. I'm not young anymore, in
my 40's. So I feel like after a long career, (failed business) I'm now semi retired.
So what I'm considering is this. Buy a cheap van. Like most likely a awd safari or astro van. Camperize it. Then use that to get around. Then go to
my neighboring province here in canada that has 'endless forests" and find some really remote place to build a bunker. Like build a nice bunker that
I could use as sort of a get away "summer retreat" / SHTF go to place.
meanwhile using my camper van to explore the country and see different things. I'm fortunate enough that I can work a bit on the road. So that base
is semi covered. But I feel like life is way too short. Like why sit around stuck in the city if you can be getting out there and seeing a bit of the
world while you still can.
I just think "why not?" Like what do I have to lose? I can always come back here to the city if I hate it out there that much. But I just think I
need a real change. And I want to build an off grid place. That I can use for about half the year. My plan is to then for the cold months fly to
somewhere warm and and do the snowbird thing. Then come back and just stay in my bunker.
The sad reality of my situation is that where I am I get free rent. But the fact is that it could change at any moment. Like at most this might go on
for another handful of years if I'm super lucky but I kind of doubt it. Like I could be forced to leave and out on my own as soon as next year.
So my thought is this would be a cost effective way to prepare for it. Like right now, I have no where to go. If anything was to happen to my
situation here I'd be SOL literally overnight.
My only challenge is that I'd be forced to leave my friends and family. But in all honesty there's only like 2 or 3 relationships that I have any
concerns over anyway. The rest are not that important anymore.
What are your thoughts on this? is this a good idea or stupid???
