I've suggested that.  :)  Believe me, I've tried everything I can think of.  It took quite a bit to get him to move from an "if we move to NH" to "when we move to NH" state of mind.  He knows his teachers at his current school, they know his abilities, he is able to skate through the classes (more absences than technically allowed), setting the grade curve most of the time.  If something drastic were to happen to the schedule (extended significantly), he might reconsider, but for now the plan is after he graduates.  Plus, he wants a significant sum in the bank before we move, but we're at or below the poverty level for our area and have NO savings, living paycheck to paycheck (and not even doing that well).  I work from home, telecommuting, so my job would go with me, but... even with all of that, he wants more of a safety net.  I think getting him to PorcFest this year is critical, because once he knows people, is aware of the network and such, he'll probably be ready to move MUCH sooner (which is why I state PorcFest '08 as the earliest move date), but barring that, I've got to work at his pace.  /shrug.

I had a sucessful interview for a telecommuting Linux Admin job.

Hard to believe they exist... such a dream job.  Wait till I sign the contract before I dream of counting chickens....

Good luck to you. Let me know if they have any other telecommuting IT positions available.

I have the contract on my kitchen table....  the hours are not guaranteed.  I feel like I'm staring down the equivalent of an ARM mortgage.

As for the telecommuting job scene.  I'm a newbie in the field, but even with a decade of responsibility laiden experience, plus four or five years of technician experience.  Plus education and paper certs.  It was close.

There are a lot of us out there in the labor pool.  But at least the labor pool is still expanding.

Reviving the old thread to say: I'm moving!

I should be arriving around Mar 1 and staying in Seabrook while I look for work, if not longer.

I'll move when I recover from the nausea of the NH primary. What a sham. Liberty minded indeed. Clinton and McCain. WOW - what liberty!! A socialist and an illegal immigrant supporter that teams with Teddy the drunk Kennedy.

I'm impressed!

Tell us how your state votes when the time comes. :)

Please list your property here with a price, so somebody might take it off your hands.

Actually wasn’t this one of the highest turnouts on record?

Yep. And I think that tells us a lot about what generally people want. A low turnout can benefit the campaigns with avid fans, but this high turnout shows us what we are up against. The people who don't vote are diverse and not like minded. Those that did vote gave their opinion.

The people have always been NH's mountain to climb. Efforts are better spent in Concord trying to sway 400 pretty typical NHites than the voting public.

I feel like 8% isn't too bad considering the high turnout, and the fact that a lot of people just voted for McCain to beat Romney. I was hoping to do better, but I didn't think we'd get more than 15% and I thought it'd be close to 10%.
I haven't seen the final numbers yet, but Paul had over 15,000 votes with something like 75-80% reporting. I believe FSP members share some of the credit for some of those votes. I think the first Liberty Forum helped Ron Paul decide to run in the first place.

The fact is we do need more people in NH soon, and I believe that we need to talk and interact with the public if we are going to change their minds. Ignoring the average voter and tryng to make progress with the typical politician isn't going to cut it.

We need more people running for office, educating the public on the issues, and maybe even some well thought out CD.

Let's not forget that those 15-20k NH voters cast a vote for a noninterventionist, who wants to abolish the IRS, The Dept of Education, return to the gold standard, and end the war on drugs. Regardless of what some Ancaps will say, Ron Paul is a pretty hardcore Libertarian as far as the mainstream is concerned. I believe that means we have 15-20 thousand potential allies here already.

The best way to get them active is to have more Free Staters coming every month.

Which brings us back on topic. When are you moving?

Hi, I'm in the process this year to get to NH by 2010, sooner with help, new friends, connections and finding a run down property to rehab.  I have a ride to Keene this Jan. 19-21 looking to be hosted to meet with others to discuss moving and making FSP/ NH / property connections.  To help support an idea I'll be leaving my town of 4 generations. Anyone able to assist can contact me at tom.ploszaj@gmail.com for more details. See you soon .   Tom

Welcome aboard.  I had to leave my home state of six generations, and it wasn't easy.  Washington used to be as libertarian as NH, until statists started pouring in.  Now we have a NY-style state government with Soviet style urban planning (Growth Management Act of 1990).

Thank goodness there are a few free states left.  BTW, don't forget to sign up at

Hope to see you at Porcfest '08, "The Ocho."

I'm moving to the Concord area mid feb.

I for one chose the Merrimack Co area because I can live in a reasonably priced area that is peaceful/beautiful and quiet but still within ~ 30 mins of Concord so I can make it to hearings and voice my opinion...especially on issues that I support...Pro 2A, Pro Smaller/More Responsible Govt. Fewer Lifetime Entitlements.....I'm in favor of temporary safety nets like temp housing and unemployment ins that we all pay into and that actually DO benefit society by helping folks get back on their feet but I STRONGLY oppose the cradle to grave entitlement system that encourages lazy/unproductive people...(aka Baltimore/DC etc)

Can't wait to see the Peoples Republic of Md in the rear view mirror and live in a state where I have a CHANCE to make a difference.

There are a lot of folks that sound like they are quitting because they were unable to completely change things in just a year or two.

People need to realize that this is a long term fight and that New Hampshire is a state where you CAN make a difference! Its going to take time and effort but change IS possible in comparison to living in states like Kali, NJ, and Maryland where its more of a holding effort...a struggle to simply maintain the status quo.

One we start to make a difference in NH people of other states will hopefully take notice...it will hopefully become a tipping point and an example of the benefits of smaller/more responsible gov't.
