1) Please add me to your FSP list. Even though I still have my doubts about the project, I'm interested in how it turns out.
You're added, and welcome to the list.
2) Pick New Hampshire. Wyoming's nicer, but NH can be defended easier and you're on the Canadian border.
NH was my third pick [the voting/count procedures are detailed *here*.] after Wyoming and Montana. Not only is Montana also on the Canadian border, but the Canadians living there are of a more western outlook [not surprisingly!] than their eastern brethern nearer New Hampsterland. But NH has a good many other things going for it as well, though the atrtractiveness of having so many states with desirable features clustered together in the west offers possibilities for future FSP growth.
As of 8-31-2003: 5,372 pledged FSP *Porcupine* members....

"after Wyoming and Montana."
The difference between Wyoming and Montana is daylight and dark. Wyoming is conservative to the core, the democratic governor elected there had to almost promise every resident a free firearm to get elected.
Montana for the most part is a liberal's, liberal state. Max Bacus, leftist unions at every level, (goes back to the old days when copper mines were all unionized) including check out clerks at the grocery stores. The Sierra club and the Greens are everywhere influencing policy and politics. Jane and Ted, Hollywood types, Californians and easterners with scads of cash first said they loved the freedom and open spaces, now they want to change it to be that from which they ran.
I speak from experience, having lived many years in Cody Wyoming just south of the Montana border. had to work in Montana a couple of times and we did most of our shopping in Billings for hard to find and big ticket items unavailable without driving 240 miles to Casper versus less than a 100 to Billings.
