my feet itch more and more everyday.
provided stars align, i'd like to drive west by fall.
coming from small town new-england, i'm sure to feel displaced.
where to go?
where are the quaint mountain hamlets?
the crested butte's (before their discovery)?
no city livin' for this country bumpkin.
i'll cycle, walk or thumb to ammenities.
demographically, a healthy balance of young and old will do me just fine.
an area that teems with "do-it-yerself" ers, in all capacities imaginable.
still, the primary (though not exclusive) reason for my move: jobs.
where are there teaching and/or outdoor-based jobs that pay a liveable wage!
withnin a 30-45 min. drive (or less)?
affordable rent a must! in a cabin or yurt. :)
all 4 seasons are cool, as are rainy days (when else do you balance your checkbook, correct papers, do laundry and catch up on sleep)?
where are all the trees?! the more woods, the better.
where i live now, i step outside and within minutes, i'm lost.
it's not! the western big country, but it's got it's gems, and i can find my solitude within minutes of mashing gears or foot travel.
it's a lifestyle i'd prefer to not compromise.
this is alot, i know.
bottom line: underground.
