Vermont is one of those places I never thought much about, one way or the other. But then I read that two towns in Vermont had voted to issue arrest warrants for George W. Bush and Dick Cheney. Two thumbs up!

John777, there would have been a lot more towns doing that if this were a liberal state.

I consider Vermont to be much like new Hampshire but without the puritanical right wing fools running this state into oblivion.

Always had a urge to visit Ben and Jerry's headquarters but only in the summer time.

I feel the same way. Every time I leave the state, I can't wait to get home. I always think of this song:

So VT may not be for everyone, but sometimes we need to look within ourselves before criticizing our surroundings.
My family and I are also looking to move to VT, May I ask what town your daughter decided on.

TIA

Well, we have actually been looking into buying a place there. For now, someplace to spend time and eventually maybe retire there.
not like we cannot afford it.
What I do like are some of the things that others do not.....great scenery, skiing, distance between neighbors, quiet, no billboards, little crime.

I found plenty of people to talk to last time I was there.

and since I really do not go out much, am quite happier to have a quiet night home, Having "things to do" is not high on the list. I found more than enough to do, most of it involves things like hiking, photography, fishing, and enjoying the quiet outdoors.


And words like beautiful, gorgeous, do not fully describe just how awesome the landscape there is. It is beyond all of that.

You can buy a place where all the outdoor activities are in high gear and buy the tickets, or you can pick a place where you and the neighbors build your own. One example is The Pinnacle, a trail leading from Putney to God knows where-- Westminster West, maybe?-- that neighbors, not Unilever, developed over a period of years. When I first moved to Vermont, it struck me that my town could have a ski trail to the next town. As I am not a community organizer, I didn't push it, but it's still highly possible-- a ten-mile trail, no cost, with a cup of cocoa at the other end. Average selling price of a house in my town is $113,000 (average asking price about $132,000). This part of Vermont is affordable!
