I'm at a stage in my life where I can splurge a bit -- and this is better than wasting it on more expensive food, more expensive wine, more expensive booze, I no longer give a **** about having the hot car, I'm not a clothes hound, etc, etc, etc
Hit 50 with a little extra money to spend, the question isn't WHY, the question is WHY THE HELL NOT.
Everybody makes choices what to do with their discretionary time/money...this is mine.
Not to mention those that do all this because it is or supports their livelihood.
And if you're thing is how to create the most optimized thingy in the smallest package you can, more power to you.
I've hit all of that (except the athletic reference, I'm still close to my prime) at 28, so yeah, this is my way of splurging too.
Condo in Aspen? Check.
Wife in new truck? Check.
House paid off in 1/10th the designated time? Check.
No real debts to speak of? Sort of check... Wife manhandles the cards like they're gonna rebel if she doesn't use them...
Mountain bike stable stocked like I want it? Check.
Life is good!
I've been blessed, and I know who to thank for it.
SO TAKE MY MONEY, CASELABS!!!
Thanks - T
