Currently living in cute and gorgeous Tunbridge, VT and loving it!
My wife and I decided to leave the rat race of Washington, DC for a quieter existence where we could grow some of our own food, and enjoy each other's company. We bought a house on 10 mostly-wooded acres in Tunbridge, VT in the spring of 2006.
