48  I win! Or do I lose?

I had never stayed at a job more than 3 years in my life. That was 21 years ago.

44.  on my 44th birthday, as a matter of fact.  i did it bass ackwards from what most here would suggest: with almost zero cash on hand and i went out and borrowed 75K for gear and a truck.  today i paid the balance of that off.  

in may i turn 46.  not sure if i'd do it all over again right now- at least the way i did it.  timing counts for a lot.  

 

oh, right- sitting here at the kitchen table typing this.  i, for one, prefer it this way.
