And yes Anurag, it is completely relaxing. I was not aware vegitarians did not eat fish. I thought it was the one meat they do eat. I often get curious about that lifestyle, being that we are carnivours, where do you get the much needed nutrients we get from eating meat? I love veggies and fruits but, I don't think I could last long without some kinda meat.
Many years ago, I had met a couple where the husband was a veggie, and I was offered a veggie-burger, which I reluctantly ate and found it to be actually really great tasting.
I am heavily thinking on renting out the camp during the times it is not in use (we only get up there once or twice each year) for a week at a time as it is about 7 hours north along the Canadian border. The property is paid-off and there is potential to make some good money by renting it out, even during the Fall and especially winter months to ice-fishers or snow mobilers or cross-country skiing buffs, etc. I would just have to screen potential renters very carefully, I don't want the place used by hunters (or poachers) and have the place felled with the stench associated with the practice. Or to get any "partyers" in there who may wreck the place of burn it down... there is no fire brigades that could get there before an hour or two past the time anyone reports a fire... and the road is often impassable in the winter months unless one has a plow.
A good friend of ours Dave Libby, lost his place and his parakeets to fire some years ago. He never rebuilt and he actually had a memorial put up on the site for the birds (they were like his children) and they had very funny personalities. It was very sad, and made everyone realize the danger of the event of a fire on that lake. He was one of only about 4 people who live there year round as it is so remote.
I think, if I were a lone, I could live up there just fine. As much as I like people, I could honestly do just a well without them haha
