I don't know if this is close enough for you to commute or not, but a rokudan(6th dan) in MJER Iaido has just moved back from Japan. She's attending(or teaching... not sure) at the University of Vermont. Her name is Eliza Meeker, and I believe she means to start a dojo up there. Drop me an email at mahan@mailblocks.com if you're interested and I'll round up some contact information.
