Oh cool! I've been on the other side of Lake Champlain, and it is really nice there. Gorgeous.

Plus you are super close to Montreal, which is one great city!

Um...I'm tres confused. Are you saying you're 'trying Burlington on for size,' before moving there at a later date/time?

Well, I hope you have fun -- and I'll take Snaggy's word for the proximity to Montreal, which I can definitely say is a grand city. [Big Grin]

Considering the economy and the state of our political system, I'm not sure whether to welcome you back to the USA or express my condolences. Both, maybe.

Well, the good news is, by October your Swiss Francs will buy *a lot* of US dollars.

Oh...I think I've pieced things together now.

To rephrase:
You're moving to VT in October and going to be a stay-at-home dad until your daughter is of age to attend school in Europe.


Momentarily forgetting that your daughter is quite young, I took 'until she goes to school' to mean 'September,' and hence considered your stay in VT an opportunity to get familiar with it in expectation of moving there someday for completely random reasons. [Razz]

So I found a house I want to rent in Burlington.

stupid credit ratings

So paying off $20,000 in college loans and a $13,000 car loan without ever missing a payment doesn't quaify one for a good credit rating...


...or at least it is not enough to rent a house for $1600 a month My credit report is all green.
They told me my credit score wasn't good enough
to rent the house.

I don't have a good credit score because I don't have credit cards and becaue I have paid cash for my last three cars instead of getting loans.


Because of this I am a risk to rent to.

They would much rather have someone who buys stuff on credit all the time I guess.

p.s.

and by they I mean Hickok and Boardman in Burlington VT.

Have you offered a larger deposit?
