Life couldn’t be better. Live in the woods. Wake up every morning to greet my wild turkeys. Have bears and deer walk by my home office window, etc.
Would recommend any of you city folk do the same - get out of cities. Nature being the best therapy isn’t some cliche.
How does one go about getting a place in the woods? Build a log cabin? Buy a plot of land from the town?
I would like a small cabin, but I have no idea how to build one.
Right now I'm in an overpriced city place. However just this week I got an idea for injecting some nature into the place. Behind the building is a parking lot with some trees, and the fire escape is facing said trees. So I'm gonna install a hammock in a nook of the fire escape, which doesn't have a ladder down (well it does, but it's retracted) or up (ditto) so it's pretty secluded. Can chill out there in tree-shade while being high up off the ground and safe from random walk-by sucker-punchers. We'll see if it works. I imagine I'll need to take it down any time it's going to rain or snow, even though there's a metal grating above where I'll put it that will block most of whatever falls from above. I guess we'll see.
