It has been a long time since I have lived in the Bratt area. There used to be a good vegetarian restaurant there-The Common Ground. Don't know if it is still open. There also used to be a nude beach in Newfane-don't know if it is still there or not.

As for your animals, it depends on where you want to live. If you rent, the landlord may have a thing or two to say. If you buy a place, I would recommend buying a place outside the town. There are tons of little towns around-Dummerston, Vernon, Newfane, Guilford, etc. Be warned, Vernon is where Vermont Yankee still is-even though it is off-line, there is still issues.

I would buy a bit of land in these smaller towns for under $100K (or even a house) and either build a little house or get a trailer-you can have your chickens & goats. You can also heat with wood-which many people do.

I have lived in Vermont for decades now and never really had to deal with guns. If you do buy land, make sure you put up posted signs so hunters won't go on your land.

The biggest challenge will using the bicycle year round.


BTW, I'm Wiccan, too.

Get a trike or a quad, and you'll be able to bicycle year 'round without fear of the ice. Brand-new quads start at about $450. Trikes are pricier, because they tend to look pretty cool. You will want to be off the streets when the snowplows are out-- they're like big flyswatters. You probably already know about layering for cold and/or rainy weather. You'll probably find 15 below will be your lower limit for biking. Mount a headlight in flasher mode as a taillight. Drivers will definitely notice you at a safe distance.

On your budget, you'll probably want to check out intentional living situations. The Vermont Workers Center has a field office in Brattleboro, and they will have all sorts of social and political leads for you in that regard. Check their website for the contact info.

Is everyone in Brattleboro that nutty? It seems like a nice area, but would libertarian leaning individuals be made to feel welcome?

Libertarian? You want New Hampshire, not Vermont. Vermonters in general enjoy being part of a community, giving a little of themselves to make everything a little better in some way for everybody. Libertarians can't stand it here.

There isn't much difference between the rural parts of Vermont and the rural parts of New Hampshire. Vermont politics is dominated by Chittenden County and a few of the higher population towns with higher population density and a large fraction of non-native residents from NYC tri-state and southern New England.
