this tax return we have all but decided to not get a van/vehicle that we can all fit into. our focus during this depression will be to further secure our farmstead. if we get our root cellar done, our solar hot-water installed, our chicken coop finished, our house made more energy efficient, a new refrigerator, our wood floors installed and all the little things procured we'll be much better off. we need a grain mill. we need more bulk storage containers. we need to get ready for the hard times ahead. if we blow it all on a vehicle and can't afford gas then what? better yet we can always get into debt to get a vehicle if the countries course changes abruptly.
this has been a hard decision. tabitha and i have looked into the future and imagine that this is the most prudent choice.
