    They build cabins up here all over the place. Come up almost every weekend. 6 hours to get here on Friday then drive 6 hours home on Sunday. Visit or wish they could live here year round? IDK.
    If they can afford two homes, they can afford to live there year round.
    'I've spoken of the Shining City all my political life. …In my mind it was a tall, proud city built on rocks stronger than oceans, windswept, God-blessed, and teeming with people of all kinds living in harmony and peace; a city with free ports that hummed with commerce and creativity. And if there had to be city walls, the walls had doors and the doors were open to anyone with the will and the heart to get here. That's how I saw it, and see it still.'" Ronald Reagan

    They can afford 2 homes because they are making 6 figure salaries in the big city. Their job or one similar to it wouldn't pay the same in WI.

    At my age, I've done all of that and I'm convinced that a sunset over a high mountain lake with a good glass of bourbon is all I need to be extremely happy.
    I'd love to have the music from Nashville, the food from Seattle (except their Mexican sucks), and the museums of Washington close by, but I can't have them all so I'll opt for the simple life without the people.

    Without any sherb fashion faux pas or Comic/Buford gun posts, we've got nothing left.

    Couldn't agree more.
