Yep, me too. I live in small town New England, USA (northwest Connecticut). I fall in love with the place every day. It's not a perfect place. But it's perfect for me. New England is a region, a lifestyle, and an interesting perch from which to see the world. New England has four seasons, mountains, rivers, an ocean, Boston, and clam chowder. And a history you can spend a lifetime exploring.
fyi.. A recent Harvard study concludes New England is now the most forested region in the lower 48. Manufacturing died 40 years ago. Only a few boutique farms in the river valleys. The rest is forest. Moose are now common in northern Connecticut. And black bears are bird feeder bandits.
