    As I've always done I'm thinking a little bigger, been doing some research on buying a small bulldozer.

    My daughter and her husband bought a house in 2012 - they have been doing the double and triple payment thing - in 2 years they will be at a point they think they will just pay off the balance.

    Anyway - I told her she should have a mortgage burning party when they get it paid off -

    She had never heard of one - and I will admit - I knew a few people that had them way back - but I have not heard of one for a really long time.

    I guess the new cool thing is to HELOC the heck out of any equity - or keep moving and buying a higher cost home.

    Sad in a way - the American dream is just to have massive debt.

    Congratulations, Rinspeed!!!

    Are you certainly settled? Content with the digs for the duration? And is the significant other likewise satisfied? Favorite child live at some distance from you, or has the subject of a gated resort community with services (golf, pool, gym, restaurant and bar) ever come up?

    I only ask, because when I hear someone claiming they've made their last house payment, my usual response is to congratulate them, but conditionally. Because for many the better response would be:

    That's what you think.
