Anybody live in Burlington or Montpelier, Vermont? I was just in northern Vermont, have been there before, and always find it to be one of the most scenic and soothing places in the country.
I now live in Oak Park, Illinois, a suburb of Chicago. It's great in many ways but other than the architecture, it ain't scenic! And I'm not planning on staying here after my younger son graduates high school (2015). I'm from New Jersey and grew up near the ocean where it is more scenic, but even that is getting quite congested and expensive. But Vermont! So much beauty, so much of it still untouched by development. It is my new fanasy. As a PD person, I know bettter than to fix my sites anywhere but the cities (as they call their larger hamlets there). Otherwise, I'll be found thawing out in the early spring in a melting snowbank somewhere clutching an empty presription bottle.
As to my question. Anybody out there with PD living in Burlington or Montpelier? What's it like for a PD person living alone re medical care, cost of living, making friends, getting around, etc. Would love to hear your perspective.
