    When I Retire, I Am Already There!!

    I know what I want when I retire. I would almost try to do it now, but I have responsibilities that I still need to adhere to. I will live in a cabin deep in the woods when I retire. I want to be completely away from everyone and everything. I want to depend only on myself...

    Ahh, The Dream.

    I would just love to live in a cabin right on the outskirts of the forest. Ideally there would be a nearby lake with a waterfall. It's my absolute dream.

    It Shall Be My Long Awaited Eden!

    I have medically retired from the Army and I have always wanted a more peaceful, wild life. I can see a loft style house sitting in the middle of a meadow on a 5 acre lot surrounded by vast forest filled with wild boar and deer for the hunting. It shall have a fresh water...

    "The Good Life"

     "dontbelong", you must know me!  I can relate to everything in your story.  Both in the literal scence of going thru a life time of wanting to live independently, in a log cabin by a stream, and figuratively by always feeling like I was born in the wrong...

    More Than Anything In the World..........

    I actually believe if I were truly honest with myself. This dream is more important to me than finding love. I have dreamt of living in a cabin in the middle of nowhere surrounded by woods, with a stream near by. In a slight clearing. Just always wanted it. It would run on solar...

    Cabins :)

    I have lived in a log cabin in the country. I did have neighbors. My heart got broken in that home. Recently I found myself in another log cabin this time seriously deep in the woods and it renewed my love for log cabins :)

    Further Out There

    I already live way out in the country, but I still have neighbors. Plus I would prefer a cabin to the house I live in now. Something small and cozy. With a fireplace. That sounds sooooo nice right now! To get away from it all! I need a vacation from my...

    The Taste On My Lips.

    Wind blows and i no i am free. I am dreaming of trees and me. Of being part of the woods. To fly oh so far. To be a part of the woods. To eat nuts. To go far away. To dream and think of goldon times.

    Home Is Where the Heart Is...

    I was raised in the country, surrounded by groves of towering oaks that were already old long before I was born.  It was second nature for me to rush outside after breakfast and stay outside until the sun went down during summer vacation's hot, lazy days. Time passed. ...

    Before every reading Walden I was intrigued

    and magnetically pulled toward a life of true simplicity. Simplicity to me is understanding what's really important in this life we have and focusing all my energy in those areas, while letting go of unimportant, frivolous, and non enriching time consumers. I need a cabin in the...
