Buying an island is not an option

Imagine your life over the next 20-30 years - if you had to choose between one of these two paths, which would you pick? Why?

1) You very rarely travel, internationally even less so, but you own a cozy cottage in the woods. In fact, your cottage is on a lake and your birchbark canoe is tethered to your personal dock. Vacations aren't spent in far-flung locations or multi-million dollar amusement parks, but reading in the hammock off your cottage's back porch.

2) Exactly the opposite - no cabin, but your visa is stamped full. You've seen the corners of the world, eaten numerous bugs, and spent time in an Indonesian jail after what you're calling a "misunderstanding".

that's a tough one, I'd like to say #2 but I might actually prefer #1...

I'm a #1-er. I like the traveling, no doubt, but these days, the idea of doing a lotta nuthin' on vacation has definite appeal!

Only I can't drive a canoe. I've tried. It always ends badly.

With or without the little misses? Because either scenario is REALLY different depending on where the girls are.

Hey, number 1 for sure, but that is from an oldie's prospective. You will remember our cabin on the Mizzou when you were a tyke and grew to be a big tyke, It was a place to sort your dreams. Gpa
