About the Blog

The Idaho and Alaska pages feature local attractions for adventures, food and fun.  We love promoting and supporting our area attractions and local small businesses.

Visit the Wellness page for thoughts on all areas of wellness as well as intentional living practices that are meaningful and do-able.  Check out the Recipe page for delicious and nourishing recipes from our kitchen (or wherever we happen to be cooking!).

The Nature page is dedicated to topics on nature preservation and management, including what we’re doing in Idaho and Alaska to help in this regard.  We learn from and share our eco-management practices on our 40-acre woodlot.  The Nature Photography page is where our love of nature and photography meet.  Included are tips on when and where to go for great wildlife photography opportunities.

Learning new life skills is fun, rewarding, and fosters self-sufficiency.  We share Do-It-Yourself Projects that we have done or are working on.  We encourage you to give them a try and/or share with us what you’ve been working on!

Check out the Media page for our videos and quotos (photos with inspirational quotes).

The Resources & Reviews page promotes great blogs, websites, books, and movies for more info and inspiration on all the topics above!

About Us

We’re Jason and Sondra, the primary bloggers here.  We’re a married couple living in North Idaho most of the year and southcentral Alaska in the summer.  We’re currently in the process of building a house on 40 acres of forested property in Coeur d’Alene, ID with plans to make it available as a vacation rental in the summers and a peaceful nature retreat and occasional bed and breakfast the rest of the year. This place is called Solitude Mountain Retreat.  In the summers we operate a remote fishing lodge in Anchorage, Alaska as well as two vacation rentals, Solitude Island Retreat and The Pioneer Cabin.  Click the links for more info or to visit.  We’d love to have you. 😊

We love to learn and try new things, go on adventures in the great outdoors and generally live as actively, joyfully and sustainably as possible. We believe that faith, lifestyle choices, relationships, service to others and fun are foundational for this.  Jason has a knack for DIY projects, land and animal husbandry, MacGyvering things and making a strong cup of coffee.  Sondra is interested in holistic wellness, learning all kinds of homesteading skills, photography and wildlife.

      No, sadly, Tanner passed away a few years ago. We still miss him lots. We’re planning to get a puppy in the fall and are excited about that. 🙂
