That's the way I'm going. What I don't understand is the whole beneficiary thing. I was told by someone that I could use a charity like the Second Amendment Foundation or something similar. I'd prefer to do it that way since I don't have any children and there isn't anyone in my family I could leave the items to.
Once I have a straight answer on the beneficiary thing I'm going to find a attorney. I don't feel comfortable using Quicken or similar. To me, it's better I have a attorney draft the trust. He may know of things in the law that I'm unaware of.
Ending up in the Federal Pen is a really bad way to find out that you made a mistake on your trust! I'll gladly pay an attorney the $300 to do it. It's cheap insurance!
