I know what you mean... some places just get under the skin. This native Californian dreams of the Upper Peninsula of Michigan! Lol! Probably wouldn't survive the first winter in reality since I've only visited twice, once in summer and once in fall, but I fell in love! So peaceful, so much nature! More "characters" than "hipsters". So opposite of what I grew up with, years ago moving from apartment to apartment with my mom in the smoggy San Fernando Valley! Doh!

Sigh... I do dream of the Keweenaw! :-)

Awesome; my upbringing was similar in the Inland Empire. Next time, visit in winter.

Where are you now? Maybe we can trade houses. I'm not on the Keweenaw but I am on Stonington Peninsula. Right on Lake Michigan.

My dream would be a home close to Na Pali on Kauai, a home on the northern Oregon coast, maybe near Canon Beach, and a home in Park City, Utah. I'd split time between the three, giving me access to my favorite types of play activities. Big cities? Not even on my radar; you can all keep them.

For me, a survivalist retreat with forested land in a far Northern state (Probably AK, NW MT, Northern ID, or Northern ME), with a cabin, barn, and underground bunker.

In the middle of nowhere in Idaho, Montana, or Wyoming.

A second home in New Orleans when I get the urge to return to civilization.

Is northern Idaho suddenly becoming more popular? There have been a few mentions of it on this thread.

I know of it, but I never thought that it was known since it's in Idaho.
