Well, in six months you can't experience all four seasons and what each brings to whichever area you think you may want to live in. Right now I am in the process of helping another out-of-state mover purchase a home without living in NH at all. Some people don't want to rent. I personally just think it's good to hold off for a year. If you can't do that, maybe try to visit a few more times to explore areas that interest you. If you guys can visit, I'd be happy to get together over coffee and talk about NH.
