9-11 are just a dream for me at this point, but I'm working on the rest (well, not #4).

If you are expecting strong inflation, why would you pay off long term, fixed interest rate, debts early?!

That's a similar question to the one I answered another day in another forum:

Rarely does the risk-reward math favor buying an investment (for a potential % gain over time) versus paying down debt (for a guaranteed saving of high interest expense). Would the value of PM in the hand rise significantly enough to overcome the loss in purchasing power of a hyperinflated/devalued currency to allow for both supplementing daily living expenses and paying down debt? Who knows. There is no guarantee that the market framework (ie. capital gains taxes, sales taxes, etc.) will remain stable.

Anyone who understands the "bird in the hand" parable can see that the conservative move is to get rid of debt now.

That is a pretty good list Aubuy!

benjamen, while I expect high inflation too, I do not KNOW what will happen. Not all the eggs in one basket and all...

I have a 5000 sf back yard, that is backed by a cement block wall. I can plot out 15 4'x8' raised vegetable beds I have 3 now,) with plenty of room to move between them. I hope I don't have to do that, because I have a bad back! O.O
