Let’s Talk About Vermont!
Talk about Vermont. Firstly I did not know what to expect when I crossed the state line. My reaction in Talk-About-Vermont-Bob Davis Podcast 1008
Secondly there was a purpose to this Vermont tour.
Interested In Vermont
To clarify a family member is interested in Vermont.
Wisconsin To Burlington
Therefore my nephew flew out to Burlington from Wisconsin so we could take a tour.
The Green Mountain State
Above all a great opportunity for me to drive while my nephew navigated and took us where we wanted to go.
Mountains, Lakes, Forests, Farms
No Bugs,Billboards And Not Too Many People
Most importantly no bugs to speak of. No billboards.
We Didn’t Even See A Walmart
Because of this Vermont’s rural landscape is like a walk back in time.
Likewise the the colors are spectacular and it’s not even fall.
Great Back Roads
We spent a lot of time on the back roads which is essentially the entire state.
Ski Towns and Bigger Towns
But we checked out the Capital in Montpelier and of course Burlington and Rutland.
Lake Champlain And Calvin Coolidge
Great State Parks
Moreover the Vermont State Parks are great.
Lean Tos and Guard Houses
Find out what happened in Talk-About-Vermont-Bob Davis Podcast 1008.
Is This The Land Of Milk And Honey?
Finally are there problems in Vermont? Well it’s not all Milk and Honey.
One thing almost everyone said was, “It’s expensive to live here”.
Freedom and Unity
But I didn’t hear anyone saying, “I can’t wait to get out of here”.
Vermonters we talked to were pretty proud of their state which has Freedom and Unity as their motto.
In short I hear a lot from my friends in so called red states about how screwed up these ‘liberal’ states are.
But it’s pretty difficult to find something I didn’t like up here.
Didn’t Want To Leave
Back In The Fall…
However we’ll leave winter to the more adventurous.
