    What do you think that says about the Vermont economy?

    Heavily considering both Keene and Concord NH areas in the next 2-3 years.

    I'd love to move to Brattleboro area just based on accessibility to my current area and places I like to ski. But I think NH is the superior state in terms of governance, freedoms and livability.

    Main advantage to VT previously was very pro 2nd Amendment. But they passed some laws in April which now gives NH the clear lead in that area as well.

    So background checks, a 21 year old minimum purchase age, and bump stock bans are too onerous on you to move to Vermont?

    having a debate about it with you is what I find too onerous atm

    Really just part of their marketing. How much do states usually spend on marketing. They are spending 500k the next 2 years and 200k a year after that. not sure if that is a lot for a state or not. They say they need more young people.

    Just spent an hour on the phone with my Mom discussing moving up there. So close to making that happen.

    I wonder if there's any restriction regarding what town/county you have to move to. For example I know tons of people (including myself) who would love to move to Burlington, but few who would like to move to a place with nothing around (jay vt. for example).

    I would be the other way. I wouldn't want to be in Burlington but would love to live in the middle of no where. Cities to me are nice to visit but wouldn't want to live in one even one as small as Burlington. Seeing they want you to be able to work remote then even better - I wouldn't have to commute anywhere.

    This news isn't really a make it or break it thing for me, but it did peak my interest none the less. With kids on the way my wife and I are looking at options back East to be within driving distance. Not to close, but close enough. Specifically buying a small farm outright and running my business as well from there.

    I now own my own business, that I can run anywhere I want to put my workshop. I wonder what the restrictions on the program are, as in specific to working remotely. What about relocating a business there? If I can swing buying a place cash I could conceivably have enough free cash flow to hire a guy.

    Vermont is pretty anti-business in policy, but man, if it sure isn't gorgeous pretty much everywhere. Despite being pretty nanny state, the Vermont initiatives to keep it bucolic really pay dividends. You can't go anywhere in NH mountains without seeing 30 year old billboards for StoryLand every couple hundred yards. I'm willing to pay to live in basically an Ansel Adams photo or Normal Rockwell painting at all times.
