Vermont being a poor, rural state is not "perspective". If you think it is, youre incredulous

Threads like this will always bring out the people who both love, and hate, the state in question. In every forum this dichotomy will exist. No place is perfect for every one, in every way.

Also bear in mind that the internet always magnified the negatives. People come online to complain far more then they come on line to say "all good here" (just google reviews on any automobile if you don't see it yet.)

I wouldn't move to a state based on someone's rose colored glasses view. Nor would I take a state off my wish list because of a few, outspoken, haters. The truth, as with any issue, lies somewhere in between, and most places "are" what you make of it.

My post couldn't have been more even or middle of the road (there is good and bad and you'll get opinions both ways) so I'm not sure why you feel so defensive. I was speaking in generalities, not to you directly.

If you move to Vermont, keep enough money in your bank to relocate to Colorado.

Like the old saying goes: "If you want to leave Vermont with a million, come with 2 million".

^^^^^^

This.

I have no idea where OP gets the idea that Vermont as a "good economy."

The economy is based on taxing anyone and anything possible to support a bloated state employee system. (The state of Vermont itself is the single largest employer). It is also based on welfare. yard sales and drug deals.

If you want a job, bring your own and expect the state to thank you for it by taxing you and applying fees in any reasonable and unreasonable way the legislators see fit.

And yes, people who want to do something other then sit around and do drugs on other people's money tend to leave for other states like Colorado or Utah.

Djuna- Where in VT did you live?

I've recently applied for a job in Burlington but I've never been before, so I am trying to find out as much about it as I can. So far property values and harsh winters are two things that have me worried. Guess I'll continue to investigate.

There is a sliver of truth in most of the posts here. I've lived in VT for 10 years now after a three year stint in the West.

The weather here is not the greatest, but the quality of life is hard to beat. You really have to enjoy winter recreation or it can be incredibly long. That said, there is a real community feeling here that we are all in this together which is hard to find these days.

Living in Europe I imagine you would appreciate Vermont's driving distance to Boston, Montreal and New York. Also, there is a wide variety depending on where you live in Vermont (as well as CO or WY).
