My wife’s company has a “summer camp” retreat this weekend, and invited family members to tag along. So I did. I loved that I could pick up and tag along with nothing but my laptop. As a solo, I can’t really afford to take a three-day vacation, but because I have a paperless law office, I can work just as easily from this lake resort as I can from my office.

But unlike working from my office, there is a deck with an amazing view off our hotel room. And a canoe at the marina that is calling my name . . .
