Kickin’ it with the Budweiser Clydesdales

A weekend trip to snowy Vermont and New Hampshire last weekend, two days of covered bridges and northern New England history, left me with George Clooney’s voice in my head. Woodstock, VT, is a small town about a three-hour drive north from Boston and about five hours from New York City. As of the 2010 census, its population was just over 3,000 people, spread across 44 square miles.
