Hamburger / cheeseburger

Live in a high Cost-Of-Living area and you had better find a high paying job; live in a low COL area [like Maine] and your fine with a lower paying job.

It all works out.

For some people that may require a lifestyle change.

Maine Hospital Association, Map of Maine Hospitals (http://www.themha.org/members/membermap.htm - broken link)

I started with this map of Maine hospitals, researching each hospital and the surrounding area. From there, we're trying to make visits to all the areas that seem promising (and most do seem promising). I know that takes time and isn't feasible for everyone, but perhaps maybe the map will help. Right now it is looking like we would love to live in most places in Maine, so that opens up more job opportunities.

I want to be close to either the beach or some place we could go skiing. I would be willing to commute for up to 1.15 hours. I want a community feel and good schools along with outdoor opportunity (skiing, hiking, lakes, etc). I would also be keeping my home in California, so my price range is 150k. What areas would you recommend?
I am going to be visiting in mid-October so I want to know what areas I should go check out while I'm there for the weekend.
Any comments would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
Not sure what happened my computer just shut down and I am back, but as I was saying, I lived in Chelsea, Maine. it is about 12 minutes from the Capital (Augusta). Chelsea just built a new elementary school this year and it is a very nice country rural setting. Also you are about 1.5 miles from the Coast of Popham Beach or Reid State Park and if you want to ski you are about the same distance from Sunday River or Sugarloaf ski areas. Also there is a hospital that have posititons open to work at Maine General Medical Ctr. Then there is Maine Medical in Portland also.
If you want to look at job listings go to www.indeed.com, I am pretty sure that is the site that has job openings for the hospitals on it.
Good luck and enjoy your stay in Maine.
