One of the perks of working in high-tech is the occasional ability to work remotely. Intel used to have a much more liberal policy about remote working, but that rant is best left for a blog post.
Anyway, as I could work from pretty much anywhere, I moved to a tiny fishing town on the Washington coast called Ilwaco. I bought a circa-1970s duplex and lived in the downstairs while I prepared the upstairs to be my permanent home. Now that I live upstairs, the downstairs serves as a handy guest house when friends and family (and kayak classes) visit.
