Re: Reality Check

Rob, what do you do at your job? With that 2.5% raise, did you even break even in your lifestyle as it is? The purchase of a truck is daunting, but it depends on what level you are willing to start at. If you want a good clean truck, they are out there and some are not so expensive to scare off the buyer. It takes some looking, but you can do it. The fixing up part is the most expensive---you cannot justify this to your family unless they are on board with you. You could find a decent driver and use it to collect your planned treasures for it for a couple years, at least you are enjoying the truck as you go.
