In response to my friend, Yasmine, and any others of you who may be wondering:
Why would we want to buy a house in Mexico before Skagway? We intend to make Skagway/Mexico a permanent thing...we LOVE it here, AND in Skagway. However, Jared figured out the difference between our lifestyle in Skagway, and our lifestyle in Mexico:
On average, in a 6 month period in Skagway, we spend 600 hours at home.
On average, in a 4 1/2 month period in Mexico, we spent 1,800 hours at home.
In Skagway, our store IS our home...as we spend many more hours there. These stats do not include sleeping time, and if they did, we get even MORE sleep in Mexico!
So...which would we rather spend money on? Mexico! Hands down!
(P.S. A house is still not in the near-future)
