    only had 3 months worth of warchest,
    This sounds like a precarious financial position? not criticising, just noting.


    PlanB, take the summer off. the older I get the more extended my between gigs breaks get, consider it a portion of your retirement taken early, the portion where you are dribbling in your porridge unable to remember your own name.

          Your house will be just lovely when you are getting buried six feet under, when you drop down deed

          Or if you make it to retirement and they are selling it to pay for your care costs

          Long time deed in this life
