Ken - We'll all send "sell the house soon" vibes down your way to get you up here in your log cabin ASAP! Were you impacted by Fay?

Hi VM13 - Is Harrisburg near York, PA? I have a good friend who lives in York (and hates it) - she mentions Harrisburg frequently. I have another friend who lives in Reading or Redding (?) PA.

Ironically, I found the Citi-Data board after we had relocated.
Radio Flyer - I didn't find City-data until after we relocated as well I knew nothing about the area we moved to (Littleton) other than one 3-day trip when hubby came up for a job interview. Hubby sorta knew the area as he and his ex owned a condo at Attitash and he had spent a lot of time up here over the years. I agreed to move here only because everything fell into place so quickly and I figured I was "supposed" to be here

From the time of his first interview to the time we moved, it was about 4 weeks I'm still not quite sure how we did it, but we did and haven't regretted it

I love log cabins ever since I spent time in east TN.

Did you have it built for you and if so which company did you go though?
Proud American - Are you thinking of eventually relocating, or just visiting NH periodically? (yes, I'm nosey!)

I grew up in NH - Hollis & New Ipswich (yeah, I know: no one's ever heard of the latter). Still planning to come back in 4 years.
Wanna - We'll just have to send vibes out to get you back home sooner than 4 years!

My wife wants to move back to the east coast to be closer to her family, and basically NH, and with a slight possibility Pennsylvania, are the only tolerable places to live with the least oppression.

4 things are holding me back basically.

1. Current and future political situation
2. Property taxes, and implications from #1
3. Heating costs.
4. Winter.

I come here and read the forums for information. From time to time, I'll contribute.

I found this forum when I was searching for demographic data about Colorado.

Thanks


John
Hi John - My husband lived in Colorado years ago and fell in love with the mountains, which is one of the reasons he loves this area I lived in NYS all my life. My aunt lived in Bellmore, LI for many years and the same time we moved to NH, she moved to the area we left to get away from LI

People are friendly and if not we get shut off! What do you want to know? Just ask. Someone can fill you.
Hennypenny - Love that name, by the way, but you don't really think the sky is falling, do you? So far, all my questions were answered when I first found the forum, although I will admit I still sometimes get confused, for lack of a better term, on how the town governments are run - it's so different from the way things were done in NY....but much better, IMO, at least people are given a chance to speak and in our area, at least, things seem to be thought about before taking a plunge for the town in any direction

Scone - Sounds like you need some house selling vibes sent your way as well! Consider them sent!

I do plan on moving back to NH when the criteria are met: finances, place to live, place to work!

I will be visiting though in 5 weeks

I found C-D when googling for something on NC and then searched C-D for NH and found y'all. I feel like I belong still in NH and not here in NC - so I hang here and "visit" NC LOL.
NH2NCMom - It sounds like your heart is definitely still in NH! Hopefully all your criteria will be met soon!

After I started going to college in southern California 3 years ago, I began to really appreciate my home region and so I love to provide info to those who are considering moving there.

And it also provides a good outlet for my photography hobby.
Verseau - Your pictures are greatly appreciated! Do you experience a form of "culture shock" when you go back to college each year?
