Just wanted to say hi, I have been reading this forum for years now, finaly registered today. I am in the process of packing and selling my home in colorado for the move back home to Maine...finaly. This has been many years in coming, but the time is here. I was born in Bangor, but my family is based in the Shapleigh area, the familys farm is still there and still in the family, and I hope to find a house as close to that as possible to buy.

What a nice area. My dad used to know someone from there. Close to many things yet still in the country. Good luck with your relocation. We still own our old family farmhouse too in Dover.

Welcome back! I recently(last March) returned to Maine after many years in California. I think you'll miss certain thing about Colorado like I do about Ca. but for the most part there are many advantages to living here again......except the humidity...lol.

We are moving from PA to Maine TO ESCAPE THE HUMIDITY! You have no idea what livinng in super saturated 102% humidity in PA is like. Right now, here in late Septmeber, its close to 85%. Where I'm moving, right on the ocean, its only 50%. Even in Abbot, where Nmader1 is posting from, its only 67%, right this moment.

Yea it is certainly a much drier climate here in colorado, but....Maine is home, always has been and always will be. By the time I get everything packed, and get my house listed and sold....you all know how the market is, it will be winter. So I am going south and will stay in my travel Trailer in Mesa AZ for the winter, and finish the move back to Maine around April 1st or there abouts. Will need to find a house to buy, can lucky pay cash for a small one, get it ready ie...carpet, paint, fenced yard for the dogs etc..., then have my things shipped out there from the storage locker here in colorado.

We have always came back to Maine as much as possible through the years, spent 9 days on the Schnoor Nathanial Bowditch out of Rockland a few years ago...best vacation of my life!!

Thanks RM, hhmmmm...you wouldnt happen to be the realtor from way up north there would ya?? If so I cant tell you how many years I have been viewing your website & listings, many, many years...lots of nice homes avalible up in that area. Over the course of time I have looked over much of the state at different homes and priceings, there is one in Eagle Lake that I have been in love with for years now, and its back up on the market. But in my heart I know I want to be as close to my family in Shapleigh as possible.

Well with any luck we'll be moving back to Maine next year sometime. I like Texas to some degree. BUT I am a country boy and always will be. I prefer a quiet night or seeing the 4 legged animals to the the hustle and bustle of a city. I want to look up at night and see the stars in the sky.
