When you live in Maine, you are spoiled in many ways. It's like getting the whole pie for desert, not just one slice of say fresh, not frozen Maine blueberry. Like two Maine lobsters, not one and again fresh, right off the boat from a cousin of a friend who works on the coast kinda thing. Not at the price someone eighteen states away would pay so its a multiple bonus situation.
When you grow up in another state or country, you get bits and pieces of what is this Maine place all about anyway. Thru conversation of "explorers" or "transplants" who have been here for a hunting, fishing, vacation hiking trip others learn the highlights when comparing notes on how each spent that week a year away from their primary home. The famous Maine potato harvest and local youth picking spuds comes up on a memory card indexed and store away in many people you bump into. Or it's an answer to a question on Cash Cab or Jeopardy asked about Maine. And Maine lighthouses..or taking advantage of climbing Maine's Mt Katahdin at Baxter State Park.
The average tourist when asked about Maine can recite the towns of Bar Harbor, Portland and maybe they ventured to the Allagash Wilderness Waterway. But locals know the good spots that don' make press. Litte places like Jackman, Vanceboro and TA R2 that are off the beaten path, unspoiled, original and locked in time.
Maine..whether sea kayaking, bird watching or homesteading on your own farm, there is so much to experience here. Can you hear your name being called in a whisper? That's Maine. Get here as quick as you can.
