I got to visit Bahh Habahh last summer. It was beautiful up there. I was there for a wedding so I didnt get to visit Acadia. But I did get some fresh lobster at one of those little road side lobster houses.

I moved to Maine from the Big City (Chicago) back in 1994 to an island off the coast of Maine. No regrets. One thing I truly love about this State (aside from its beauty) is the fact that there's little pretense. People are way more concerned about the kind of person you are rather than who you are, or what you own, or what you drive, or how much money you have, or what you do for a living.

Especially here on the island, when someone from away expects preferential treatment because they see themselves as more important, they're laughed clear out of the damn State. It's a great thing.

Why Maine?

Well reading the thread was the original poster sold on Maine yet?

We live in Tulsa, OK and on our way to Maine for our 4th year in a row! Why? Beautiful land, trees that move through the clouds, beautiful people, and and and....

I love the land, and the feel of Maine, retiring in 5 years and leaving Oklahoma. I miss the 4 seasons and yes the snow (originally from New York). Miss the snow everyone asks; I won't be driving in it to go to work when retired so I think I will throw a log in the fire and enjoy it from the inside of our log cabin.

PS.... have grandkids to shovel the drive........... and a tractor.

PSS If anyone has any suggestions on a 'small' town that is close to a Mayberry type town with a Andy Griffith as Sheriff let me know............ I'll pack my bags immediately!

The most amazing part of Maine is the coast. There's no other place in the country like it. The key however is visiting when the place isn't swamped with tourists and their screaming kids, yet the weather is still pretty nice. The ideal months seem to be May, Sept and October.

To answer your question (OffRoadGears) Yes!
Maine is definitely on the list and to be quite honest this tour is going to require a very extended vacation
I am looking forward to seeing just "how life should be".

Quoted because this is one of the best descriptions of Maine that I've heard.
