Vroom Vroom … Here I Come!

 

 I have never really understood the desire to own a car. Roughly 25% of its value disappears the moment you drive it off the lot and in order to run it you are tied to a volatile energy source that is linked to pollution, health problems and wars. I do understand the need for vehicles. I love my auto-share programs (some things you just can’t bring home on a bike) and road trips are beautiful thing.

One of my goals in life was to not own a car until I was 40 years old and I have made decisions in order to protect that goal.

Deciding to buy land has made me need a car which I am good with. On June 4th I bought my very first car! 2 months before my 40th birthday but I am still declaring victory on my goal and am over the moon with my Honda Element!

Realizing that I am small

and that my land is big and that Mother Nature even bigger.

 

 The area in front of the tent is a complete mud pit with no hopes of drying up so 3 drains are going in, the ground has to be graded and 10 more large trees need to come down so more and more sunshine can pour in and the mosquitos breeding grounds can dry up.

The deck did not settle evenly and there is a 2 inch slope down to the one corner. If you ever drop anything at least you know where to start the searching. That will have to be fixed – thinking a car jack and a couple of patio slabs should do the trick but maybe not.

I won’t be building my little artist studio this year but I will be finishing one kick ass campground and starting the prep work for the Ginger Shack to be built the following summer.

After all these years I know that it is not about sticking to a time line but not losing sight of the end line.

I have never been a lover of cars. Buy one and once its yours, a quarter of its value disappears within the first year?!? The ability to use it means you are tied to a volatile energy source that is often linked to wars and is terrible for the environment. It is an expensive monthly habit, that in a city like Toronto, causes more pain than gain. That said. I love my car rentals and auto share programs. Road trips are amazing and somethings you simply can’t carry on your bike.

One of my goals in life was to make it to 40 without owning a car and over the past 20 years I have made choices to protect that goal. I will be turning 40 in August and just bought my first car. I am a little early on the calendar but for me this is a victory and for the first time in my life I am super in love with a car. My car.  Check out number 9!
