Back when Vermont was still Vermont, home of the Woodchucks, the farmers, the store owners and the towners, one could find an assortment of individuals that didn’t fit into the run of the mill people. These were the ones you found in the country stores, who may also be the postmasters for the town and the local news source for just about anything happening. They knew directions to every where as long as you knew the difference between a maple and an oak or a tedder and a rake. If they told you “You can’t hardly get there from here.” it was mud season. Smart people paid attention.
This was before the granolas aka the back to nature hippies invaded. There is a section of Vermont still known as the Granola Crescent, running from Groton up through Peacham in Caldonia County. These are the “Do your own thing” as long as it’s our thing crowd.
