I’m starting to worry about the costs involved in this hike. Not just the costs for gear and food, which will be substantial, but then there’s the fact that for around six months while I’m on the trail I won’t be earning any income.
Of course, my bills don’t stop while I’m out. Sure, I won’t be buying random stuff because I won’t be at stores. But I also still have to pay my health insurance (it becomes MORE important at that point). I still have to keep paying my student loans. My husband will be living in our house paying our mortgage.
So now I feel like I have to save up not just the money for gear and food, but also six months worth of my contributions to our bills. Which is difficult because right now I’m still in the hole (majorly) from my last film project.
This is definitely a “what was I thinking” kind of day.
