Would southern New Hampshire be a good place to move to?

I just got a job offer in Hudson, New Hampshire ( south of Nashua, about 45 minutes north of Boston).

Would this be a good place to live if TSHTF? Or if it doesn't?

Anybody know of any Y2k preparedness groups there?

Depends on where you're living now. If you're IN Boston or NYC, then, yes, it's better. But on 45 minutes from Boston sounds pretty close to me. I'm 5 hours from Portland, and that makes me nervous.

You could always live north of Hudson,and commute south - giving you another 30-45 miles?

I'm about 45 min southwest of NYC. Most people randomly fleeing NYC or Boston - in winter - would tend go south, eh? And if they're not fleeing at random, but going to a relative's house or something, statisticly most would be going south or west.

N.H. is our neignboring state- I don't recomend southern N.H. personally, but it's better than NYC for instance. Try to locate your living quarters away from Nashua, Manchester or Concord- these are all large, by NH standards cities- and Manchester has many problems. Nashua is one large mall. Concord is the capitol.

It would be well worth it to locate further north into the boonies and commute an hour or so- then see what happens later on. On the other hand, NH is a relatively safe state in general- but recomend the more rural areas of it
