    I’m seriously considering moving to Vermont within the next 2 years to find some land within about 30-45 minutes of Burlington. Anyone who lives in Vermont, please enlighten me as to what I’m getting myself into with this state that I might not already know.

      You will love Vermont if you are liberal. If not you might want to consider New Hampshire instead.

        Not really an issue. They’re pretty liberal-hippyish in Burlington, but it seems to be an interesting mix of progressivism and libertrianism.

    Property taxes are expensive in VT….1.9 Acres in Bennington, VT comes close to $3000 with a disabled Veteran exemption

    i love the idea of separate kitchen. in bali they live in small compounds, with the center an outside meeting area. the restrooms are separate and so is the kitchen. then the full bathroom. it just made sense to me when i went to a small, simple balinese family home.
