I know it's been a week or so since I last posted, but I had a WWII reenactment and military vehicle convoy in Gettysburg, PA. There were some good aspects (the convoy and battle in New Oxford, PA) and some bad (rain, mud, and a lack of communication which resulted in me leaving early).
On my way home, my sinuses decided they had had enough and filled up. I've been dealing with that, and now think I have a sinus infection. Yay me!
On more good news front, and a credit score update, my Equifax score is now 752 and my Transunion is 776! John's Equifax is 700 and his Transunion is 706! Although, those are going to change, which I will explain here soon.
In a previous post, I mentioned how J and I would be purchasing a home and eventually a WWII jeep once we had cash available, which wouldn't be until the new year.
Well, back in July I had emailed someone who was selling a WWII jeep in our area. At the time, the person selling it decided they didn't want to sell it. This was fine, I don't blame them for not wanting to sell it! Then, last week I got an email from the family saying that they now indeed had to sell it and was I still interested. Dilemma!!!! Yes, I was still interested, but we don't have the cash on hand to buy it. We will though and it is something we were budgeting for in the future. So after going back and forth, and actually going to look at it, we decided to get a loan from NFCU and pay it off in 3-4 months.
Reasons for doing it. Jeeps in the condition this is in are not easily come by. Jeeps in my area on the East coast in this condition, even harder to come by (and usually NOT for sale) and the price, while it is expensive, is more than a fair deal for a WWII antique in working condition! Most jeeps are located on the west coast and shipping is EXPENSIVE. In fact, this jeep came originally from San Diego where the current owner shipped it from, and is definitely not making any money on this sale.
So, we now have another loan, but as I stated, this will be paid off in the next few months. On a positive note, I did qualify for the lowest interest rate! So I will update a new sidebar for the jeep which is $12,000. I will also post pictures once I take possession
We are still CC debt free, which was the originally intention of this adventure :)
