And actually, comparing it with the other places we've lived I just think it's the hospitality thing. For any event or get together or even a stop over at a friends/relatives house, there is always food brought out and beverages. I think it enhances the storytelling

I've never lived outside cold climates. I just assumed drinking was pretty much a cultural thing and bars were everywhere. I don't know much about the cultural climate of east TN, and I think Maine is a lot like WI depending on the area. Some parts are very cold, as cold as northern MN and ND just gotta look at your hardiness zone map and avoid those areas.

My guess is I'll end up around Baraboo. I just like WI. The driftless area, the state parks and lakes, the dells. For 100 bucks I'll get a season pass to noah's ark and spend every weekend there. I like the 4 full seasons and don't mind cold weather. I just don't like bitter cold, eastern SD weather where the snow never melts because it never gets above 32 degrees from late Nov through early March and it's -10 to -20 all the time at night.

One thing to keep in mind is that Maine has the highest tax burden of any state in the US, at least according to stats I've read.

just my two cents' worth, being a former resident of Sheboygan, WI.
I can think of worse places to live. For many years I lived within a few blocks of the lake on the north side. The lake does have a minor effect on the local weather. slightly cooler & more humid during the day in summer, but warmer than inland at night. maybe slightly warmer in winter by about 5 degrees. I noticed more morning & evening fog in spring and fall in Sheboygan than I experienced inland. but, the sun usually burns it off pretty quick. The lake does have it's scenic and recreational qualities, but it sucks for swimming.
