Truth in the Lack of Stress

Really, we can have it one of two ways. Struggle to get to work or work virtually. The Sundance Estate, one of the greater options available to the right buyer tends toward the virtual side. It’s about an hour and a half to the Spokane International Airport, from the house you are looking at in the photo above.
Yet the property is nicely situated, or let’s say, nested in a quiet mountain scene on the shores of a privately accessed lake.

Here’s the contrast.

I used to live in that gridlock. It's a pretty picture, great town, home of the SeaHawks! But a time sucker if you drive to work every day or nearly every day throughout the year. I've done that. And to the best of my ability to avoid it, I'll never submit myself to it again...not daily.

This Tweet from King 5 News in Seattle came this morning (February 20) foreboding a worsening gridlock for the future. This was the very reason that I and my wife and still young daughter moved from Seattle years ago. We lived in Redmond, a suburb of the over-saturated Pacific Northwest metro area. I worked in Federal Way just south of the SEATAC International. Though the commute was little more than 45 miles, it took an easy hour and a half, every work day, to go oneway. That quickly computes to 3 hours a day wasted in a 35 mph crawl zone. Multiplied by 5 days, that’s 15 hours a week. Times 48 weeks in an average work year, that computes to 720 hours of my life in heavy traffic.

Something Had To Change

I swapped the city gridlock for the restful reprieve of rural Idaho life; I chose living in the Panhandle of Idaho. For me, it was easily the best thing I ever did, next to marrying my wife (of course!). Why would I say that? Because where you spend time and how you spend it plays greatly into the happiness you project outwardly to other people in your life, including those at work. Contentment, like that found in my rural lifestyle, is a feeling that comes quite naturally to those who find it. This inspiring meadow is the back yard of the house at 469 Lee Lake Road, Coolin, Idaho. It’s a Priest Lake area property that you won’t find the likes of anywhere else! And I’ll attest, you cannot sit contemplatively overlooking this ever-changing view of wild North Idaho meadow without feeling content.

It doesn’t get any better than this! This natural Lee Creek mountain meadow populates with elk, deer (both whitetail and mule deer), moose and bear. We’ve even seen cougar here and a red fox. Coyotes too and bobcat, even an occasional Canadian Lynx–all from this perch on the deck of the the Lee Lake primary house. Photo by Eric Anderson

Like the great taste of huckleberry jam, which comes to you delightfully, pleasantly, and quietly without complaint right out of the mountains surrounding the incredible backyard of the Sundance Estate. Believe me, huckleberry jam on morning toast or mixed in the pancake batter is far better than the traffic jam of highway gridlock now so prevalent in metropolitan areas.
