So, what's new?  The biggest thing is that my health has declined.  Badly.  I am in constant pain.  That's the bad news.  I went to see a doctor and there is nothing 'obvious' wrong.  'Just' stress he says. But it sucks nonetheless.  Its horrible.  This practice never stops preying on my mind.  So I have made a decision.  Whether I make the money I expect or not, I am leaving here in June 2018.  We are going back to Alaska.   In 17 days I am going to look at this property.
  It is remote...near Copper Center.  I am thinking about this a lot.  What do I hate?  The Government. Taxes.  Being told what to do.  This property is in the 'Unorganized Borough' of Alaska, one of the few places left where that sort of nonsense is minimal.  Of course, it is hours from anything.  There are no emergency services.  Nothing for the kids to do in the traditional sense.  I'm not sure about it yet but I'm leaning this way.  As for the firm, it is trucking along.  I just hope it starts to produce some real money, instead of just investments.  I need to do something different, and fast.  It all boils down to what the firm can produce in the next 18 months or so.  I have been remodeling my house since last September and, barring another economic collapse, I should be able to put $300,000 or even $400,000 in my pocket from that.  The kids are doing well and enjoying their summer vacation.

As for me, I have to remember these days.  Some folks think I will be 'bored' if I actually get to retire at 45.  Hardly.  It is Sunday and I am at my desk again.  In pain from stress.  I'll go look at this land and see what I think.
