You can never have enough survival money. That’s all it is. You grind, fight, slash, grab for a moment’s solace only to immediately renew the process all over again. No rest for the weary, señor. Taking wack jobs can get you, then keep you on that vicious cycle.
Hard times pop up and you’re doing what you need to survive. There are no hard-fast rules but you have to be cognizant of your circumstance. If you look up 1 year from now (X units of time today) and you’re doing the same things and they are not what you wanted to do then you probably are on autopilot over the desert. Any mechanical failure occurs and you’re looking like buzzard food.
