What would I buy? Wow. First, I'd buy this cabin so I never have to move again. I hate moving. The owners want to wait to sell it until house prices rise again in the area, but I'm sure they'd sell it if I waved a bunch of money at them. Then I'd live here until construction on our other house was complete. Then I'd renovate this cabin so people could come and stay in it when they visit.
Then, I'd get a bad ass Jeep Grand Wagoneer. A cool old one, with the fake wood paneling on the outside. Like this one:
I'm sure Austin would buy a big fancy truck. We'd also get a couple of ATV's, just to drive around the block in. I have a friend....I won't say who it is, but you know who you are, that bought a golf cart for his kids, for the sole purpose of getting around the neighborhood. Wow. I want separate vehicles for that. In my day, we walked. Like 10 miles. But Mimi will need something to drive to the school bus stop, so maybe an ATV for her. Or a pony. She'd definitely want a pony.
Maybe a couple of trips. I want to take Mimi to Hawaii, and I want to spend a week digging at the Crater of Diamonds. #1 on my bucket list is to walk the entire Appalachian Trail in a single season, all 2000-ish miles of it. I'd totally quit my job, so I'd have time for that. We want Mimi to see Alaska, so that too. I read that there is a beach in Japan that has star-shaped sand. You can see it here.
Beyond that, I'm not sure what I'd buy. All of the above is probably less than a million dollars. Of course, we'd all give a bunch of it away, but what would be the first thing you'd buy?
