I don't know where you are going, but can I come, too?

I was on my way to visit my friend Margaret Rome in Baltimore when I spotted this camper right in front of me. These are my kind of people, life *is* better in the mountains. I didn’t know where they were headed but I was tempted to follow. I wanted to go where they were going.. imagining hikes on autumn trails, fall colors, spectacular scenery, and a fully charged battery at the end of it all.

I have been dreaming of a cozy cabin in the woods, a weekend get-away, possibly with Airbnb potential. Perhaps this is my sign to fulfill this little dream of mine? I know where to look, I have all the resources at my fingertips and I know people, the best people in all the best places... from Montana to Maine, North Carolina to New Hampshire, Virginia to Vermont... you name it and I just know who to call - thanks to this incredible community of Real Estate Rockstars. 

Wanderlust. Life is better in the mountains.

Wanderlust. I don't know where these people are going, but I want to go, too. Life *is* better in the mountains, isn't it?

Andrea have you been reading Carol Williams cross country adventures!  She's having a blast!  I've done this in the past and it's so fun to just take off and see where you land day after day - and make plans to visit fellow rainers too!  Go For It!!

I am a bit envious that you get to go and visit Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400 and I hope that I will get to meet her one day.  I spent a weekend in a camper and definitely decided that the camping life isn't really my cup of tea, haha.

Andrea Bedard - what a thoughtful and inspiring post! I hope you get to travel to all the places you would like to go. I have been to all the places you mentioned, and each one offers something different and the same - meaning mountains, cabins, and serenity. You picked some wonderful places to get cozy and enjoy. Make your dreams a reality!

I've never been to Colorado Joan Cox but it's definitely on my list of places to see - especially since I've been following you! I'd imagine that I probably won't want to leave!

Michael Jacobs, it is! I grew up in a famiy of hiker enthusiasts so I've always loved the mountains. Plus, fall is my favorite color.. this time of the year always reminds me of that little dream of mine.

I love the sound of that Will Hamm, a stay at a cozy cabin in Steamboat Springs sounds just like what I need. Colorado is on my bucket list of places to see!

I am following Carol Williams adventures Anna Banana Kruchten CRS, CRB, Phoenix Broker, and not only that, I had the pleasure of meeting her in person when she stopped in Pikesville and was treated to a Baltimore-style lunch by Margaret Rome Baltimore 410-530-2400. We had the best time!

The Poconos are a great destination for a weekend get-away Grant Schneider.. not too far, but far enough for it to feel like a mini-vacation. Bonus: now is a wondrous time to be there. Fall is my favorite color!

Brian England you need to come to the East Coast and we'll all meet up for lunch! I am very lucky to not only have connected with Margaret many years ago but to call her my friend.

I know you do Kat Palmiotti, and you are top of mind when I think of Montana! As a matter of fact, I was thinking how much you would like that tire cover when I saw it pop up ahead of me.

Thank you Patricia Feager, MBA, CRS, GRI,MRP! I've been to NH many times, I actually lived there for a year, and got to visit many corners of New England. But I've yet to make it out to Colorado and Montana - both are on my travel bucket list.

Happy Sunday Ron and Alexandra Seigel! That's one of the biggest reasons why I love Maryland as well, both ocean and mountains are close enough for day trips. Speaking of you, I am going on one tomorrow with my assistant Lennon. Although the weather is not ideal, I scheduled a day for a hike in the Appalachians.
