As I've mentioned before, I'm in my early 50's, and I'm scoping out places for retirement. (Hopefully, someday, Please??)
The response to my Maine questions were pretty good. So, What about Vermont? I've heard pretty much all good stuff. An ultra low crime rate, a relaxed, 'live and let live" philosophy, most people are decent, etc.
How's taxes, cost of living, stuff like that? I've heard some towns in the "Northeast Kingdom" are pretty isolated, with some people living totally off the power grid, but I have no desire to go that far.
Winter? Yeah, I can take winter. Got wool/fleece lined tights, good jacket, etc.
I don't ski, but I am told that the town of Ludlow is pretty nice.
All responses appreciated.
