Maybe I should just sell everything in the basement and pay off the mortgage?

I just sold a bunch for that reason. It just did not make sence to have a whole bunch of money tied down in the basement. Paying down the morgage made more sense at this point. I beleive there will be a breaking point when these big toys will drop in value.

I want to stick to 5, still need some sort of a hobby and ready to accept a loss some where down the road., like a boat, snow mobile.... however, if I was a new comer to this, no way would I splurge that kind of $ to get in.

Looks like there is a new crowd out there. Guys that have loads of money. They could care less about the price. They want it, they will out bide anyone to get it, 10k, 14k, 16k no problem, still peanuts.

One guy in QC paid 12k for a TSPP. Money was secondary. He just wanted the title for his kids.

Nah, just move out to New Brunswick like I did. Your mortgage will be paid off, and you get to keep everything!
