other direction

IMG_0485Okay now i really have blown up a big chunk of the money which  i JUST Got on Friday! my mechanic and i had been having a hard time finding a CHOICE of 8 ft beds, in fact we were having trouble finding any place that were advertising they had any.  Everyone was advertising those indecisive vehicles, with the piddling little 4 and 6ft beds, which in my opinion is just an open trunk.

Basically he threw in the towel and i was on my own. I had described what i needed…i called a husband of a friend who worked at a dealership, and i fell ass over teakettle for the 1st thing he showed me. All he did was drive it out from the behind the building. It was exactly as i described. It’s an ’08 Toyota with 88k miles…and an 8ft bed – see the 10 ft jon boat slides into the bed nicely. No boat trailer required.   and it has a little backseat not a lot of one.

Granted, though i was getting it at a fair price of about 20k, I had to add on about $2000 worth of extras…a running board and bed step, so i can climb into the thing, and a hard bedcover and bed liner. but these will just make the tool more useful for me. In the end, it was what i was expecting to spend for a truck i am going to put another 200k miles on….but since i haven’t gotten the house yet, it was way more than i am comfortable spending.  It has a towing package so now i am thinking of picking up a box trailer..watch out craigslist…with a little cargo trailer, i can absolutely move myself completely, no need to hire anyone.  See what i said, every time i buy something i have to buy something else to go with it!  and when i am done with the trailer I can sell it off.

It’s nearly tuesday, and I have spent a ridiculous amount of the money I made from selling the house…and i STILL don’t have a place to live yet.   Thursday I have a meetup in Maine with the broker, she’s optimistic about the house, but didn’t mention finding me a rental yet. Perhaps if i press her.  But who is going to rent a house to me as a tenant at will?

If i dwell on it, i will just stir up a panic attack.  I need to go back to working on the new websites, which means..alas spending more money, i placed a few basic orders today, and will send in a couple tomorrow.  I’m being conservative about the volume but i want a wider variety of associated products, especially once i set up a spot to shoot the product videos. While Nate is building me a frame work for the website, my job is to start making up the content….only this way will i have half a chance in hell to start the money flow to go in the OTHER DIRECTION.
