My father in law has a cottage in the mountains a couple of hours from us and my spouse thought it would be a fantastic idea to stay there one weekend and “get away from it all” and “get in touch with nature”.

I thought that was a great idea.

It’s fall and I love to hike and I could just imagine the beauty in the mountains right now. However, when I got there, I was surprised by what I found. I had pictured a rustic cottage with a fireplace or wood burning stove and guns and fishing poles and things like that. There was very a fireplace, and radiant radiant floors and a flat screen cable with hundreds of channels and internet and I just didn’t see how my buddy and I were getting away from anything or getting in touch with nature. And then she had to watch the game…and I was trying to figure out exactly what my buddy and I were getting away from..My spouse did do some hiking with me though and I think she enjoyed it as much as I did. And it was cool enough at night to light a fire in the fireplace. It wasn’t cool enough to need the radiant radiant floors, but I’m hoping to come back later this winter and get in touch with nature in the snow. My friend and I can try the radiant radiant floors then. And the fireplace was pretty romantic. Even though my buddy and I didn’t get away from much or get in touch with nature very much, my buddy and I still had a wonderful weekend.
