I'm in Maine.
The Lonewacko has heretofore known very little about Maine, mostly out of disinterest. It was all the way at the other end of the country after all. Wasn't it really actually part of Canada anyway? Lonewacko was apparently out of the loop, because not only do people live here, they apparently come here (in the summer) in droves. For some strange reason, that point is taking a long time to sink into my brain. There are actually other people here, it's not just trees and moose.
On the way up, I made a list of the things I knew about Maine:
- Steven King
- Acadia National Park
- lobsters, trees, and water
- really bad weather
- the pant-suited, man-hating Jessica Fletcher
- L.L. Bean
- it's where the Bushes go on their summer vacations
I'll be here for a few days, then I'm heading south. I'll also try to post about what happened between Bedford PA and here now or within a few days. Meanwhile, enjoy this Maine overview.
