    Lots of new faces here since I was active. What's your why?

    My why is to firstly, pay off all of my parents farm debt so that they can live comfortably in their retirement. I want my freedom and to be done with the 9 to 5. When I have finally achieved my freedom, I want to build something that lasts long after I'm gone and that helps as many people as...

    Just bought a house for $9,000...

    Yep, I bought some asbestos kits on Amazon to do some testing. As for the paint, particularly on the floor, I'll probably just paint over it and not sand it just in case of lead paint. Definately a smart thing to test!

    NOTABLE! The biggest lie that you believed for most of your life?

    That great things in the world were made by special kinds of people. The truth is, great things were created in this world by people no smarter than you or me. "Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not: nothing is more common than unsuccessful men with talent...

    Home renovation/construction hack: If you only need equipment or tools temporarily, buy used tools off of Ebay. That way, their value won't depreciate (compared with buying new). Then, when you are finished, simply list the tools on Ebay again for the same price you bought them for. Renting...

    How do you become a happy person?

    Alright, first things first, find steady employment. Now, I know exactly how you feel because I've been in that same situation for many years. My life was a continuous existential crisis. I would bounce from one idea to the next and I really was searching hard to find happiness or something...

    Get a moped. Cheap to fix and run. High mpg. Cheap insurance. You can buy a cheap tao tao online for like 800 bucks. Or get a gas powered bicycle. I bought a bike and engine kit on Amazon for $270 and it goes 30+ mph and gets 70+ mpg and requires no insurance.

    How much $$$ would you need to significantly change your lifestyle?

    I would be between tier 1 and 2. I am a man with simple needs, the thing that I want mostly is to get out of the bitterly cold Northern U.S. winters. Perhaps getting a second home in Arizona.

    Transportation Maps - Rail and Ship

    This past summer, I got to take a good look at the barge loading facilities of some of the agricultural big boys (Cargill, ADM) and watch grain and fertilizer be loaded onto the barges and watch as the seemingly-tiny pushboat pushed the barges. It's really a sight to see. If sales are king...

    NOTABLE! What is the BEST "value" you ever paid for?

    Well, lately I haven't really been following it because my current job is pretty physically intense, so I don't need to workout. lol But when I was following it, I would follow it for a few months, and then get lazy and stop for a while, and then pretty much just pick up where I was last. I...
