Adventures in the cabin rental world
September 9, 2011
|It’s said that God never closes a cabin door without opening another one. Or something like that.|
Passing the offices of the Wenatchee World newspaper in Washington
State, I said to my wife, Pat, “Pull over. Let’s put an ad in the paper
and try to rent a summer cabin. We can’t roam around the West forever.”
Three months earlier, we had sold our house in the city and our cabin
with 40 acres of woods in the coulees of the Minnesota River Valley.
Then we quit our city jobs to start a mid-life adventure somewhere in
the West, preferably with mountains and trout streams.
In the newspaper office, I wrote out our ad: “Homeless vagabond couple
seeks interesting shelter. Lakes, rivers, mountains, okay. Returning
from Europe April 1.”
