Veteran sailors consider the Maine coast from Penobscot Bay to the Canadian border second only to the Aegean as prime sailing grounds. And if we ever get back to somewhat normal winter weather, the mountains of western Maine offer top snowboarding facilities at places like Sunday River and Sugarloaf.

The key will be finding a job. Good luck with that. What field are you working in?

The midcoast area should provide you quick and easy access to some of Maine's finest sailing in addition to putting you relatively close to at least some "hills" that you can get to with out having to make a road trip to do some boarding.

Camden Bowl and Herman Mountain (hill) are two spots that would be within an hour, or less, of the midcoast area, depending upn where you settle.

Depending upon your circumstances, Camden and its immediate surrounds can be pricey and may offer limited employment opportunities. Head up route 1 toward Stockton Springs, Winterport, Bucksport and you will less expensive real estate and more convenient access to employment in Belfast, Ellsworth and Bangor. Sounds like it is time for a ROAD TRIP!

Enjoy the process of exploring and finding the right spot for you!
