I dont understand. If you want new, then more new is better than a little new, right? So if you move to Yemen or Mongolia, it would be way better than New Hampshire wouldn't it?
Well, the reasons for moving to New Hampshire, in particular, are somewhat varied. We plan to buy some land to build a solar/wind-powered home and start a farm that will hopefully lead to a high level of self-sufficiency. We want to raise a family, preferably in a place where we are (more) free to homeschool, etc. I currently have quite a lot of dealings at my workplace with people from NH, so every time I speak with them I ask for feedback about NH. Is this a good place to live, raise kids, and so on? I have yet to hear anything that I consider to be a real negative about NH, except perhaps the winter weather (although I did live in the mountains in Oregon for five years, so even that doesn't scare me). Also, the Free Keene movement is, I believe, a positive thing that I/we can get behind. I hope that better answers your question, but feel free to ask more if it doesn't. I really am looking forward to getting there and becoming part of this community.
