    My Dream

    So perfect, can't even hardly image it. I would get up early in the morning and have my coffee out on the deck over looking the lake. Watching the fish jump in the water, the ducks and geese swimming around, that would be so peaceful. Bonfires next to the lake, cat fishing at...

    I truly do believe that's how I'm gonna end up.

    Somewhere off the grid, with a buttload of books, my musical instrument (the "oud" - rhymes with "food"), and either utter serenity or cynicism, I don't know yet.

    And when I die they can plant an oak tree over

    my body so I can keep an eye on the place. RIP (Check the lake for my boat. I'll be fishing!)

    My aunt lives on a farm!

    When we visited, we stayed in a cabin by the lake. I don't think I had ever slept better. I would love to own my own cabin in the woods.

    I LOVE going on vacation in a trailer home

    (close enough) next to a lake about an hour from my house. It's a rental thing you just call in a week before and the guy who owns these trailer houses will find one for you to rent for however long (a few days or all summer). My friend lets me come over when her mom, sisters...

    Louis L'Amore Got Me Started

    His books inspired me. I started reading them on plane rides, a couple a month, back in 01 or 02. Fast reads. About men making their own way in life. Homesteading. Strong values of integrity and hard work and building a future. An unspoken dream continued from my days of...

    I want to do what the name of the group suggests

    but have doubts about my ability to survive in the wilderness. One question, will the cabin have electricity and internet? Need that EP!

    I did for two and a half years.

    It was like a four bedroom house but it had no foundations. It was made from ***** pine and was on a raft right at the edge of a tidal lake. Doors would swing open or shut depending upon the state of the tide. Bats lived in the roof. In the winter all manner of wildfowl...

    I do! Well..about 25 minutes by car from my

    cabin there is a beautiful lake. One of the most precious lakes in the Western United States. In a national park. I absolutely adore it. I have lived in this area for nearly 20 years and never tried swimming in it until this summer. WAS I BLIND?! I must have been. Anyhow...

    i've designed the cabin

    and located the property but now i need to start compromising to make the funds meet the dream. maybe some square footage needs shaving and a few more windows and doors. what if i downsize the mountain stream to a creek or maybe a running facet.

    Just sign me up. I'm thinking of buying some

    property to do just this when I retire. I would be simply content living without the city life on a daily basis. The crackle of a campfire, A log stove to heat the place up and perk my coffee. Sitting in old wooden chair and having a glass of wine at dusk. Hearing the wild come...

    That sounds sooo perfect,

    honestly! Perfect scenery, the smell of nature, the beauty of the lake, the surrounding of woodland creatures, the peacefulness of the environment... Just seems so stress free and relaxing... Not sure about the cabin though... I think I would prefer an actual house like my...

    I really don't know why,

    its perhaps because when i see this kind of scenery in pictures or movies i feel like connected with this view, looks so peaceful, with nature surrounding you, no noise or other kind of pollution. A place of peace.

    With few possessions,

    a garden to grow own food, a few chickens for fresh eggs, a clean lake with fish and no TV! (A loving partner would be nice)
