    It's too bad I'm stuck in the office, but at least the view ain't half bad

    Stunning shot. Nice end cap to that would be a couple of grilled salmons and a cold one.

    Technically I share it with two other people, but one is staffed on a project in South Africa and the other is staffed on a project in Wichita, so I've been all alone for weeks.

    Chicago is a beautiful city. I only left because of the rampant political corruption.

    Well, you're doing your part to fight it--you're probably still voting here!

    I had a nice day too. Shot an 85 at Cascata. The greens were fast and true, nice relaxed pace and our caddy was hot! :wow: :cool:

    I'd much rather be on a mountainside somewhere with no buildings in sight, but I haven't figured out a way to make being a climbing bum pay the bills yet.

    The office is the necessary prelude to the mountains.

    I don't care if I shot an 85 or a 115, as long as I played at Cascata along with a hot T-Mate :supergrin:

    DD, your office just went to second place on pretty days today, :rofl:

    The heartbreaking things is, even with your comfortable earning job....you wont be able to do it for a long time.

    You have to be willing to walk away from all those years of education and that prestigious job....give it all up and do something else that earns without you having to manage day to day. You may still work very hard, but you wont do it most days. Be it a self running shoe store, a few food franchises, a pile of rental propery, royalties from IP....whatever.

    You must give it all up in order to gain everything.

    Most times yes... but not always. Only thing I have sacrificed is a bit higher wages, but I work in the redwood forest on a small mountain side with an ocean view (from certain areas). It's a matter of luck really.

    While there are buildings in sight it only takes about 5 minutes at a brisk clip and you don't see them, hear the cars or anything else but the sounds of the woods. It's one of the reasons I stay where I am.

    My post still applies to you. You still work. It isnt about the literal mountains(or however you want to paint the allegory of having time to do as you please). It is about freedom from work. What one does with that freedom is arbitrary, having it is the important thing.
