  There is that... but don't forget the lack of
sales tax and income tax.  Property taxes set by
each town means you can pay 1/3 the tax in one
town for a comparable house in another.  (Unfortunately,
Lisbon is on the high end.)

  There's plenty up in the North Woods / White
Mountains for everyone up there.  Hey, I know this
place for sale that already has a 12x36 Atlas/Clausing

  Every place has its advantages and disadvantages
and, as you say, you can find happiness almost
anywhere.  It just comes a bit easier in some places
than others.  ;-)

I think I find more happiness in what I do and who I'm with, rather
than where I'm at.

It seems to me the inside of a house looks pretty much the way you
