    Thanks for taking the time to give me specific advice about my potential commute. I will be very cautious overall initially anyway, but will pay heed to your remarks about that section of Rt 4 in particular.

    Thanks. It's pretty frustrating trying to reason with people like him...the same types come to VT too and don't last long unless they go to the few cities dominated by similar transplants...up there in ME I can't see him lasting long...

    Nice try in dealing with Zarathu today, he'll never understand and you're right, he won't last here for more than a year. Nobody up there will tolerate him for more than a week or two before he starts getting the cold shoulder. He says he has lots of friends up there on MDI, I'd be willing to bet he could count them on less than one hand. It's hard to reason with the unreasonable but you gave it a good shot.

    Yeah go to my profile and see my pic I shoot with a bow mostly, and have won tournaments. I have to admit I prefer the bow

    Yeah? I've had an interest in bowhunting but I'm not too good at it. My accuracy is poor with a bow.

    I think we should take this somewhere else, I doubt they will be happy about the hijacking of that thread...but yes I am a big bowhunter.

    In the Unorganized Borough, where my land is, there's no property taxes, no building permits, and only minimal state laws on septics/wells (pretty common sense minimum distances between septics or outhouses and water sources) but no permit for either is needed. I think it'll take more than 10 acres to supply firewood in the Interior but you can get a permit to cut firewood on government (state or federal) lands if needed.

    I don't know about MI on that one. In VT it varies though I don't think it's anything like ME anywhere in VT in that respect. Everyone seemed fairly friendly in Fairbanks when I flew up and went to check out land (though admittedly I didn't spend much time there, I had work to do driving 150 miles to the land I was looking into), but I'd stay outside of the boundaries of the Fairbanks North Star Borough, they have high taxes there. My future neighbor said everyone was pretty friendly in the village closest to my land (Manley Hot Springs, I never went as far as the village which is 14 or 15 miles from my land down the elliott highway) when they realized they weren't troublemakers (being at the end of the road, they've had occasional issues with troublemakers who follow the road to the village since there's no police around most of the time to stop people, so if it takes a little while for people to warm up to you it's for those reasons).
