Well, you may be able to bridge that income gap by hanging out your shingle and doing tax work on the side. I'm somewhat amazed at the number of folks who PAY to have their returns prepared. All else seems like a pretty good fit for you.

I want to go up to VT this weekend alone and see the paradise that it is. I can't find a friend to bring with me though. Is there anything I can do alone? I enjoy the outdoors, hiking, and sightseeing, as well as other things.

You can do all those things alone.

My manager just told me that Burlington has lots of people who walk around in public with bare feet. Gross!

Seriously? I don't think your boss knows what he/she is talking about.

I saw someone in bare feet in Rutland the other day...actually, the parents of the kids down the road from me are always letting their kids run around barefoot (and poorly dressed in winter but that's another topic).

I wouldn't do it on pavement, and actually sandals are as close to bare as I usually get, but I don't see anything wrong with it per se, there's some arguments in favor of it concerning health benefits to the feet.

I've walked around in public in bare feet. It's kind of gross, if you mean dirty, but has left me with no ill effects. The main problem seems the risk of stepping on glass or something else that punctures the skin. Otherwise, I find skin a remarkably effective barrier against things that should remain outside the body.

Have you been to Burlington before? Just come up. There is a ton of stuff to do on foot. Walk down and check out the sunset on the waterfront. There is decent shopping. Tons of bars and good restaurants. Definetly go to American Flatbread or the Vermont Pub and Brewery for food. Tons of hiking and outdoor stuff just a short drive outside Burlington. Go to Mt Philo just south of Burlington on route 7. You can hike to the top for free or drive for a small charge. Amazing view of Lake Champlain and the Adirondacks.

I have seen people walking around bare foot in Burlington. There are a ton of hippies up here, especially in city park.

One or two now and again, but not lots. I think your boss knows you fall easily for such silly rumours.

And if you are grossed out by a few hipsters walking around in bare feet, VT may not be for you!

Oh, I don't mind it at all lol. If it's only a small minority of the population, that's cool with me! I didnt mind Northampton, MA, after all.
