Where is a good place in the eastern US to buy a reasonably priced vacation cabin? Preferably somewhere wooded with a great view of the stars, but close enough to civilization and modern enough that there are amenities if needed.
A few months ago I asked the question about using travel smart routers to host a VPN to disguise your location. The purpose of this is to have a working vacation in a foreign country, without telling work about it.

Now I am in Cabo with a VPN to the US. I’ve included some details in a comment below. AMA

For people that work long hours: are you focused for every minute, or does that time includes breaks? (Ex. Meals, time on Fishbowl). Curious if people are actually focused for 55+ hrs a week
