    Please consider moving to Pennsylvania. And bring some money. We don't have any. Our elected officials spent it all on sports stadiums and gambling casinos. All that aside, I hope your move goes well and Maine is a truly beautiful place to live.

    Yeah, the county. If your from Maine, it needs no further explanation. For all others, "The County" is Aroostook County, largest county east of the Mississippi. My wife is from there. it's God's country, but there ain't a whole lot goin' on for work.

    I suggest you start drinking Moxie now, that way you'll have built up a tolerance by the time you move to Maine.

    Yup . . . The County with a capital "C" . . . as stated . . . Aroostook County . . . the crown of Maine . . . and a whole other world.

    HehHeh . . . Maine's official state soft drink . . . it's good . . . but an acquired taste . . . most folks say it tastes like a combination of Coca Cola and cough syrup.

    Sounds like Red Bull!

    Wow, I'm getting lots of really great feedback. Thank You all,I truly appreciate it.

    I am a member of an Outdoors Forum up here in Alberta and there is a lot of taunting,disrespect,bullying etc. There are lots of Threads that need to be locked by the Moderators. This forum is a breath of fresh air!

    Oh, Ok I might have been there as well since we went to Bar Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, Acadia, and a couple other places along the coast. The whole place was awesome.


    Here in this area of PA, the County is the county lock up. Never been there.

    Moxie.. YUK! I'd rather run my tongue on the brim of a Walmart toilet than drink that stuff. Seriously

    No coast for Aroostook.. Bar Harbor and all that is WAY downstate.

    Grew up in Keegan, ME if you are wondering. My folks still live there, sister in Eagle Lake and brother in Houlton.

    Have to say living out here in AK is very much the same as what I grew up to. People are great (well outside of Anchorage anyhow), views... can't beat them... do wish we got more snow though, only get a couple feet a winter.

    Nope . . . at least not if you were in the Bar Harbor area . . . County is way, way up there . . . go to far north and you're in a whole other country where they spell things funny. ;)

    Gotta move over to the Girdwood area for the snow . . . although my sister said this past year was an odd one with lots of rain for quite some time until the weather pattern shifted and then they got the normal snow.

    Now as for Moxie . . . you sure you're from Maine? ;) :) Next thing you know you'll be telling me that you dislike Fox or Humpty Dumpty salt and vinegar potato chips and hate whoopie pies. ;)

    Whoopie pies are just inside out birthday cake. Anyone doesn't like them... not sure I'd trust someone like that. same people don't like dogs.
