"It" rolls downhill...(too soon old, too late impulsive)
I'm heading out to California next week - 300 miles, 10 days, destination Sacramento area. Plotted a route to avoid most interstates, but still be near enough to get on one if the weather turns foul or any other fertilizer impacts the ventilator. It's a trip I've wanted to take for years.
Had another BFO when I saw a truck in our parking lot where the guy rolled out his bed slide, and pulled everything out of his truck bed with one hand. "I said "gee I wish I had gotten..."
A week ago I saw the thread of a member who'd "invested" $2000+ to have custom twin beds put into his 2016 27' Eddie Bauer.
Now there are two people who are smarter than I am. They got what they really needed. It might have caused them some angst to part with those "big bucks" but that's ONE TIME angst. They'll enjoy the benefits of those impulses for years, or even decades if they're lucky.
I'm not advocating screaming nekkid "carpe diem" attitude, destroying your present and future by overspending chronically - but by being hard headed enough to decide what you want, explore what you'll have to budget to get it, and then not whittling your dreams down to where everything is purely affordable and sensible and safe and beige.
Now, excuse me, I've got to find out if anyone local has bed slides in stock! Today is the day.
Today is a gift, that's why they call it the present.
