      There are over 360 porcupines here already, with clusters on the
      Seacoast, in the Manchester area, in and around Keene, as well as the
      Upper Valley/Dartmouth-Lake Sunapee region, as well as some up in the
      north country, spread between Littleton to Berlin to Pittsburg. While
      the north country is a three hour drive from Boston, it is an hour or
      so from Montreal.

      Yes, though there are affordable pockets in Cheshire, Sullivan, and
      Grafton Counties.

      Hahahahahaaaa.....there are few places where that will ever happen.
      You'd really have to be out in the sticks for that to ever happen.

        You will find a vast network of people who will support you both
        socially and politically, complete with a welcoming party, all over NH
        but especially in the Concord, Manchester, Keene, and seacoast areas.

        Yes but there are places with reasonable homes in SNH.

        HA! What have you been watching, Northern Exposure? Most of the time
        this winter we had no snow...so unless you're up in the 'notch' this
        doesn't even count.

        Wow. I can see a full *range* of responses to your questions, as hundreds of liberty-lovers from all *over* the place weigh in! What follow are my own.

          Strictly speaking, the most important focal point is...New
          Hampshire itself. The FSP has never taken a position boosting one part
          of the state over another, since everyone has their own most valuable
          criteria.

          Me too. A *lot* of libertarians are gravitating to Keene,
          in the southwest part of the state; it's relatively inexpensive, a
          beautiful area...but heavily Democrat-socialist (for the time-being at
          least). Others prefer the seacoast region. It's relatively close to
          Boston, near the seashore, a beautiful area...but really expensive.
          Others prefer "north of the notches" where the cost of living is lower,
          the pace of life is slower, the small towns are quaint, and it's a
          beautiful area...but with really cold, long winters and lots of snow.
          My personal favorite is Grafton. It's one of the
          least-populated towns (which in NH are like counties elsewhere) in New
          Hampshire, already has a pro-freedom outlook in many ways, it's "south
          of the notches" so the winters aren't as severe as farther north, it's
          still relatively inexpensive, super-Porcupine Bob Hull owns over 300
          acres there (that he might divide up and sell you a piece of), it's a
          half hour to Lebanon and Dartmouth University (including the medical
          center), it has LPNH chairman John Babiarz and his wife Rosalie, it's a
          beautiful area...but some people think it's too rural and "in the middle
          of nowhere. But it's where I'm buying my place.
