The times I've spent anchored for a few months out in some back country wilderness area, I start out missing the bar and town, then I'm good for a while, then I miss town again. When I get back to town, I miss the wilderness and quiet, then I'm ok for a while, then I can't wait to get back out there again. Round and round it goes.
