I'm considering moving to the Eugene area at some point in the next year for either grad school or to take a farming apprenticeship. I currently live in Austin and most recently have spent some time in Vermont. I'd like to know how the hivemind thinks these places stack up.
(Yes, I've read the Eugene threads, but I think this is a specific question that hasn't been previously answered.)
Things I love about Austin: the lakes, the dog-friendliness, the hills, the amazing food, the niceness of people, the music / film scene, the local stores and stuff
Things I loved about Vermont: the mountains, the trees, the friendliness, the "do it yourself" Yankee vibe, the cheese, the beer
Things I hate about Austin: the heat, the heat, the heat
Things I hate about Vermont: the six months of cold, the isolation
So, tell me. Will I like Eugene? What about it will I like? What about it will I hate?
