It's a 6 hour ride on Amtrak.

Indeed. That's probably the only time of year the DVD drive on my laptop gets any use.

I haven't made the trip yet.

But it's nice to know that a train goes straight from downtown Brattleboro to Penn Station in Manhattan.

I love the ride between Rutland and Penn Station. It's a different line than the one from Brat. It is kind of long. If I did it more often I'm sure I'd be watching movies on my laptop, too. As it is, I chat with fellow passengers and listen to podcasts while watching wonderful scenery.

Since this was in regard to the "7th boro" comment, I was wondering if VT has the same attribute I noticed when I was temporarily living in the Hartford, CT area this summer where Yankees vs. Red Sox was like Yankees vs. Mets in NYC. I was up in the Burlington area in April for an interview that could've possibly led to a relocation from metro NYC and that was the vibe I got then.

YES! People go nutty here with Yankees vs. Red Sox. Flags fly from homes and team loyalty caps & t-shirts abound. I ignore all sports and even I can't help but notice this intense rivalry.

I would guess that if you're moving from NYC you're going to miss the jobs. Bring a trustfund or you're SOL.

Took me 2 years to realize this. Now it's time to get ready the exit strategy.

Or maybe its because everyone is working more than one job...

Vermont: Percent with multiple jobs nearly twice national average.

No wonder I can't get a damn thing.
People have to work 2 jobs because the pay is terrible and you have crappy part time hours at best. I'm sorry, it's been nice to experience 'rural living' but this 'lack of jobs' is just soul crushing.

I had an interview in March and they told me (it was only 15 hours a week by the way) that it was between me and a person who ALREADY had another part time job, and she got this second job. Go figure...

I'm just daydreaming now about getting back to the real world and working again. When a person with a MS degree can't even get a lousy 12 hour a week job( my last interview), you know something is seriously screwed up.
