« on: May 01, 2009, 01:45:24 pm »

Hey Will,

I know we have had at least one person move from Montana to New Hampshire with the Free State Project.  I don't know how many members we have in Montana though.

NH's home school laws are middle of the road and in need of improvement. 

The state has lots of open spaces.  I went to study with a friend a few days ago who lives about 30 min outside of Concord (the capital)....her house was two miles back in dirt roads. 

You can find information all over our website.  Look at the menu on the left and click around.  And let us know if you have any questions.

New Hampshire is a good place to raise a family, and the home schooling laws are not too bad.  There is an impressive homeschool support group in New Hampshire, and there were almost a thousand people attending one homeschool bill hearing--and a few porcs up there recruiting folks for other liberty activism, while they were at it.  Yeah, getting locals involved!

You can find other folks (and maybe encourage them to move out with you guys ;) ) at fundamentalsoffreedom.org  They are more Wyoming centered, but have a couple of Montana folks, too.  I've been telling folks on the west coast about both New Hampsha and Wyoming, although I'd much rather they come out here to the seacoast.  It's actually the only ocean area anywhere amongst the migration states.  We've been sharing info and handy tips with the Wyoming folks, and vice versa.

NH does have safety inspections, however they are not as intrusive as most other states that have inspections.  From what I understand as long as your check engine light isn't on then you will most likely pass the emissions part.  All that they do is hook up a scanner to the computer and scan for any codes. Then as long as you have enough brake pad material, tire tread left, among other things you will most likely pass. With Auto registration you pay a state fee, plus city/town fees and taxes on a yearly basis. I just paid under $100 on my 99 Ford Taurus.  The cost will very based upon the age of your vehicle, size, and where you live.

nice it sounds about the same here price wise I like the idea of inspections you really should not make you pay for it if it is required then get the Highway patrol of their A$$ and let them inspect it! anyway its a good thing to have a well maintained car especially brakes and tires.

thanks for the other site I will check it out!

You'll find the homeschool laws here an improvement over those in MT; no immunization tracking requirements; no min number of hours; and no building code requirements. You can see a summary of the HS laws here (http://www.hslda.org/laws/default.asp?State=nh).  That said the powers the be have made attacking us (proposing revamps to existing regs) an annual ritual.  You'll find the families of the 4000+ homeschoolers in this state are remarkably interconnected, organized and activist.

That said, as good a homeschooling State as I've found it to be (I'm a homeschool father of four)  the annual proffering of legislation will continue.

Btw, I have to lay my cards on the table...back when FSP voted I voted for MT (though I didn't homeschool at the time)  ;)

I think that I put Montana second or third.  It's a pretty good state, IMO.

So far I love the state. I have been homeschooling for a while now I think 5 months or so and all the superintendent of schools wanted was for us to sign up with them and say we are now homeschooling and that was it. none of the other stuff you mentioned was brought up at all.

so far the new gun laws that are being put through and the governors actions on letting the Fed know that we know our state rights and the Fed should know there's are very reassuring to me.
