Finances and bills [PRE HIKE]

Rate this Entry
Finances and bills for the thru hike were one of the biggest obsticals. I assured the funding for my hike fives years ago when I made a monthly direct deposit into a separate savings account. I never touch the money that was put into that account. The funding for the hike is secure.

Bills are another obstical that need to be tackled and the best way for me to do that was to get all my loans paid off. All loans were paid off this past summer. The only loan left is my mortgage. My military retirement will cover my mortgage payment. There are no kids left in the house. This leaves only the basic bills left. Homeowners insurance, car insurance, electric, phones, cable. This will be covered by my wife's income. Everything should be fine. The only issue will be the unexpected things that pop up out of the ordinary.
