Upper Valley Communications

Some aspects of communications in the Upper Valley aren't necessarily intuitive to a newcomer. Here are some of the most useful discoveries and links we've found since our arrival:

New England is the oldest part of the US, so it will have rock solid coverage, right? Not so. Coverage varies wildly, and we strongly recommend speaking with your neighbors, or posting a query online with very specific location information.

online hubs: (or, what about craigslist & freecycle?!)

There's probably a story (or stories) behind it, but there are remarkably few Upper Valley listings on Craigslist and Freecycle. We guessed it was Yankee Thrift in action, but learned most of these types of posts are found on local Listservs.
