I like the watering systems and the red and lesser red of the salt lakes. Hope I never see them again. The potato farm at the Mobile station going into Sunday River is fine.

The place across the road has nice lodging. Sometimes it's hard to walk back from the bar place down the road. Even better in the summer as prices are down, butt in Winter many race teams headed to SR.

I had a rough experience with an airline once that still makes me cringe. My friends and I were supposed to fly to a ski resort, and it turned into a total nightmare—delays, cancellations, and our luggage went MIA for days! We ended up stuck at the airport with no clear answers.

Lots of wind farms in the middle of the country...

Iowa? That was the only state I saw a bunch of them driving X-country last year. Surprised me too given it's Republican. Then again, they are the leader in the corn gas scam so maybe I shouldn't be shocked.

Like the dust storm they had for a few days when I was out there. You couldn't see the Mtns at all. dust all over everything.

PRO TIP: Live on the Back - none of that dust bowl, inversion, 106 degree days, nonsense exists on the Back.

It's basically Florida in the mountains, but with 52 degree lows at night so you can sleep with the windows open.

If you've been to Barre lately water is the least of their problems. The Woman are skinny (good), butt have no teeth (not good).
Not enough dentists in northern VT.
Been that way for 20+ years and not getting any better in the next 10 at least...

Attracting young dentists to most any rural area in the country has been a challenge for probably 20-25 years (way to many new grads think there can't be a good, quality environment to live in if it's not a nice urban or suburban area) and that thought process, which IMHO has a decent component contributable to the demographic and geographic pool where most dental schools are acceptng students from, isn't likely changing anytime soon.

Heck, in the portion of NE CT where I live and practice (by no means an urban or suburban area) over the last 15 years, the only 3 new dentists to come into the area were children of existing dentists in the area joining up with their parent's practice. And even within my own practiice, my partner and I have had 5 or 6 of our patients, who went to dental school, and upon graduation went that urban/suburban route, even though they still have family ties to the area.

The notion in many younger folks seem to be that there can't be a good quality of life in small(er) towns across the country, and that's going to be a tough thing to change, even as more and more dentists in these smaller areas, near/reach retirement age over the next decade especially

If you are the only dentist in town, you'd think that would be a good thing!
It certainly can be. The issue is that the mindset of many of the new(er) grads and dental students is that unless you live in a sprawling area with hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of people, it can't be economically sustainable, which is far from thr truth, as well as far easier to attact patients to a practice when you're the only game in town, if not even multiple surrounding towns

In the MWV we have adequate GP's, But very few specialists.
Our N Conway Pts travel to Portland for Endo, Perio. & OS.
We have a great Ortho but he is only here 1, sometimes 2 days/week.
