greenspun.com : LUSENET : TimeBomb 2000 (Y2000) : One Thread

I just bought a 2 bedroom house in W. NC mtns with 5 acre garden spot. Told wife I feel like I am on the Titanic but just bought a ticket on a rickety helicopter that is idling on the poop deck. Plan to finance a second mortgage on it and keep making payment on the house in the city. Can keep this up as long as economy is good, i am a programmer so i hope to be employed. Will move to mtn house as SHTF. What are your thoughts on this?

Half-assed solutions bring half-assed results. You are trying to have your cake and eat it too. A lot of people are doing that, and they are going to be sorry later.

I wish you well, but in my opinion, trying to keep one foot in both worlds is like having one foot on a banana peel and the other in the grave.

Few are willing to make a difficult commitment to getting out of Dodge.

Who's saying we should LEAVE dodge?

I say, stay in town. Bring a big gun. Blow the scum away.

The economy is about to head south. Suggest you have the courage of your convictions. If you stay, make sure you can leave on 6 hours notice maximum. (and don't count on EVER returning)

it sounds like you have a nice vacation home. but i would have opted for something very modest with NO mortgage, if at all possible.

Jocelyne, it's the local troll, posting from under the bridge again.
