Background - Been at the same job/company almost 10 years. The money is ok/decent, not great, I'm good at what I do and am the go to guy when things are messed up. I'm just really burned out, my own health has deteriorated and am constantly stressed out, back pain, can't seem recharge my batteries, projects are piled on, last real, full-week vacation will be 4 years ago this May. The only time I've taken off lately is when I'm too exhausted to come in to work, having back pain, or sick. Mainly, I want to take off to de-stress, work out more, eat properly and restore my energy levels and mental well being, and travel (The working out and eating well are 2 that I'm working on now). In regards to travel, I've only been out of the country to Europe once for like 8 days or so...As I'm approaching my mid 30's, I think that if I don't go now, I never will and I don't want that regret...I'm also contemplating a career change and the burnout is something that I don't think 2 weeks or so off of work will fix. Over the holidays, my dad was diagnosed with cancer and is going through intensive chemo right now, so I'm staying with my parents to help take some of the daily load off, my mom is an emotional wreck. I was thinking of quitting in a month or so when he's through that or at least when we know what direction the treatment is heading. That has kind of put things in perspective. Even if I'm good at it, I like what I'm doing, make decent money, it still may not be worth it if it is stressing me out to the point that it's affecting my health and well being.
I probably made a mistake of telling my parents I'm probably quitting my job to take a break and travel, maybe up to a year (I'm brutally honest...I shouldn't have mentioned it at all when my dad is going through this, but it's hard to hide the fact I'm really burned out when they see you daily)...to which my mother said I was crazy and went into a tirade on how I need to find another job right away while I have one and can't just quit, we might need the money, it's escapist behavior, etc. The money part was a full out lie as they are financially secure and have health insurance through her work. My parents have never left the country and rarely go anywhere. I told her she is missing the point, I don't want another job as I need to take some time off from work, another job will bury me.
Personal - In my mid 30's, single/not married, no kids, no college loans, no credit card debt, have a mortgage, but it is a duplex and already rented it out which covers the taxes and mortgage. I've squirreled away enough to where I could live for several years if need be, so financially, I have my shit together. I think my mom was flipping out due to the fact that I'm not married, no kids yet, now I'll be unemployed, and she's not a grandma into her 60's now, it's something I want eventually, but I'm not catering my life to anyone else's time schedule or demands in that department.
My main concerns are returning to the workforce and/or career after taking a long time off...and other concern is that I'll be having too much fun and won't break out of the full time travel mode cycle. Any thoughts or advice?
This seems kind of hard to nail down to get to a fair price for a used Rialta. Are these in the Bluebook? I tried finding comparable sales on RV websites or ebay completed/sold listings, but it's kind of hit or miss depending on milage, model, and year. I'm in the market and just wanted to make sure I'm not way overpaying. I've seen the 2000's and up models around 20k-35k with mostly the 2004 or 2005's fetching that upperward value...
Does anyone know what kind of price range would a 2002 FD (fullbed or even the twin bed model) go for with ~30k miles?
Any insight is appreciated...Thanks!
Does anyone on here know if there is any way to find out where a real call is coming from when someone is using a spoofed phone number? We talked to the local police department and they said there isn't much they can do. I'd just like to find out for sure if these are all coming from a company.
Backstory: Recently our home phone line is receiving unsolicited calls pumping us for information on apartments we have for rent. We use a cell phone for business so we know anyone that calls the home line isn't looking for an apartment. I know these are unsolicited as they are always out of state area codes on the caller ID and when they say where they are from, it never matches up....so I think that they are spoofing their phone number. The caller always says that they saw an ad on google or another website that we don't advertise with, I tried to search those sites and nothing comes up, so I know it's not a robot pulling my ad from the site I use....When we ask for a name, or to set-up an appointment, they never want to leave their name or set-up an appointment. We think it's either a real estate company looking for information on price values in our area, maybe a listing agent, or property assessor, but it's getting annoying and just want it to stop.
