Just before the pandemic, we moved out to the Hilltowns of Western MA. How did we land here? We drew a one-hour-drive circle around my step-kids' house, and then we looked for house & property in the MA parts of that circle. I went to college at Simon's Rock, and have been in love with the Berkshires ever since.
Rural life suite me just fine, not that we have a real internet connection ;)
