Living in such a rural, mountainous area, you are driving a minimum of 15 minutes on fairly nasty roads before you get to the local supermarket, gas station, hospital, etc. Commuting to work for most people is at least a 20 minute affair and many people have multiple jobs in an effort to make ends meet. This leaves very little time to actually exercise and because of the slightness of people's pay checks, the food we can afford is not always the healthiest.
Vermont is one of the best places to go to spend time in nature. There are a number of mountains to climb, a number of trails, many state parks and lakes. Everything is kept clean and free of waste and provided you have properly prepared for the outdoors, there is always a good to time to be had there.
In a rural area such as this people know each other through some means or another and have frequently helped one another with some project or event that needed to be done. Everyone knows everyone else at town meeting day and the decisions made reflect the best interests of the town's people. Most people who live here have lived hear most of or all of their lives and aren't likely to be moving any time soon.
