    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
