kinda not sure anyone understands how little 25k is. yeah it might be alot to people who have two dollars, but 25k is nothing really, and can be spent on pointless crap in no time. also where are you going to buy land in a clean safe area in the US for anything under 700k??? we also just might have really different standards then..
I say buy something nice for 1-2k that you've wanted, and keep the rest for emergency..
We all have different standards and how we do things, but if you want to feel good when you go to the bank, I say leave it there. rich people stay rich by saving, not spending..
at the end of the day, you need to listen to your instincts as it will never guide you wrong..
In scand. theres a lot of old military sites thats being sold off insanely cheap. It goes for about 100 000 kr. roughly 20 k of u'r prescious dollars
But bare in mind, that the status on these things vary from the german ww2 bunkers to 1980 when the modern radarsystem that didnt need all the basestations, was launched.
the germans build well over 7000 bunkers just in the western Norway.
Many biiig submarine bunkers with 5 m thick walls.
cool enough for u?
