We were delivered some bad news today. Our beloved Bertha not only needs her transmission rebuilt but also needs new brakes. She came to us for free but now it looks like we need to invest approximately $5,000 in order to get her up and running. We are emotionally invested in Bertha but $5,000 on our salaries is a serious commitment. We are both dreamers and love adventure so we are already leaning toward biting the bullet. In reality we have five more years until all of our children are out of high school so those are some great memories we could make with them. At that point, if we can get anything for her, it will go toward our next great adventure.
We would love to her your thoughts on the matter...What do you think? Are we being stupid or should we continue to follow our dream?
