Don't waste your time. Despite the pollyanna attitudes of the Free Staters, I wouldn't recommend this area to anyone. $500 to $800 (or worse) to register a new car; astronomical property taxes; and housing costs three times the national average. Then there is the cost of heating...we just filled our tank for the first time this season, and almost dropped dead from sticker shock. It will get worse, much worse, in the coming years. My wife is from here, and she can't wait to get out. (Got wood stove? You'll need it.) NH is being overrun by liberals from all the surrounding states; The French are pouring in from socialist Quebec. (If you like the condenscending arrogance that drives Rush Limbaugh straight up a wall; you'll love it here.) Democrats have made tremendous inroads into the State Legislature. Did I mention the devastating floods in the Keene area this weekend? New Hampshire? No, thanks.
Agent provocateur alert. Why don't you talk to the 400 or more Free Staters who have already moved to New Hampshire. They uniformly love it. If you don't believe it, go to the FSP website and read some of their stories. If *you* don't like it, certainly you're free to go...but I haven't talked to a single person who has moved to the Free State and regretted the move, and I've talked to dozens if not scores of them.
