How far away are you willing to go from Maine?

Minneapolis and Pittsburgh are decent choices. Cleveland will be a bit cheaper, very underrated place (just avoid the hood). Milwaukee is a solid option too.

I'm from Bath, maine currently. What part of Downeast maine did you live in I have family down that way and know it well. I know that there may be challenges with moving away but I think the culture shock is something I'm kind of looking forward to. I lived in Norfolk,Va for 5 years and that's a much different culture then maine was.

I'm willing to go a good distance away from Maine.

Eastport, was related to half the town when I was a kid but have only one living relative left, I could see Canada from my grandparents kitchen window. Been through Bath many times, always thought the big cranes were fascinating.

What don't you like about Bath? Would a move down the road to Portland be a possibility?
