Have you ever been in a conversation over dinner with friends when the question comes up, “If you could live anywhere, where would you go?” Most of us have established our roots where we may have grown up or where family and careers have taken us. We all tend to enjoy where we live for our own individual reasons, but how many of us fantasize about relocating to some new, interesting, or exotic place, and how many of us couldn’t be happier living where we do?
I have always had fond memories of my cabin. It was an escape as a child. Not that children really need an escape but it was the best part of summer. It was secluded far back into the Rocky Mountains in the Sawtooths. It wasn’t one of those cabins where everyone went to a time share on a paved road and enjoyed the ruggedness of only 3 channels on the TV. We had no pluming, it was all dirt roads, and all the electricity and pluming we had was from a generator we had in back. It wasn’t exactly roughing it, seeing that it was still a cabin, but it was away enough from civilization that you could feel free again.
