Bradbury Mountain is a decent day trip from Portland, plus you could stop in Freeport and shop and eat lunch at the (supposedly) haunted Jameson's Tavern. The staff there will show you a book about the haunting if you ask about it. The hike at Bradbury Mountain is easy, they have one easy trail and one more difficult, but it's not really that hard, either way.

The wildlife refuge in Gray is also nice. Only open in the warmer months, of course:

Wolfe's Neck State Park:

And Wolfe's Neck Farm:

If you look on this page, there are several places listed, and Tidebrook is not to be missed:

Gilsland Farm, closer to Portland:

Scarborough Marsh, where we have rented canoes and drifted along, seeing birds and such, very peaceful:

We have also taken day trips to Boothbay, Bailey's Island, Popham Beach, George Reid State Park, and a lot of places in and around Ellsworth along the coast. Deer Island/Stonington is also a great place, if you go up to Ellsworth and then take the road down to there, the views are fantastic.

I agree Western Maine is fantastic, the drive thru Rangeley and Height of Land, while first visiting Smalls Falls is lovely. You can climb up along the falls, as well as dip into the pool at the bottom.

There is also a place just above Paris, where you can sort and sift for tourmalines, Maine's gemstone, on Route 26:

If you go a bit South of them, there is a gas station that serves hot and cold sandwiches, which you could then take a couple miles down the road to Snow Falls Gorge:

Other places to consider are The Forks, and Moxie Falls, and there are people who rent and do guides for white water rafting, and perhaps renting a cabin in Belgrade lakes area. We stayed at this place last year, to get away, and it was very quiet, dog friendly, and campfires every night, supper is BYOB:

Get you a Maine Gazetteer and just go out and drive around and explore! So much to do and see, especially in the warmer months.

You might need it because cell service is sketchy in a lot of Maine, and well, the GPS always wants you to get on the highway or go the most direct route, but that's not always the most fun, is it? :-)

Get a copy of the maine atlas and gazetteer. It has a lot of points of interest and campgrounds of different types (developed, primitive, lean-to, etc.). It also has most of the larger trails in the state and info about where the gates are, impasses, etc. Camping locations are everywhere, though i usually find a nice secluded spot on the map away from any marked points of interest or developed camp grounds and drive in, find a spot and set up. More times than not, i'll end up in a great spot and not see another person the whole trip.

Here you go!

Full duplex, wireless, B&W laser for ~$110. Trust me, you'll be happy. Toner cartridges for these are inexpensive (~$48 for a high yield, 2600 page count) and the units last forever. I have an HL-2040 (earlier revision of this series) with over 100K print jobs.

Oh, and the toner won't go bad on you like ink will if you don't print for a month.

You should read 1491 and America Before. Also there a numerous journal entries that have been published about the true history of Columbus and westward expansion.

Edit: words and formatting

Quite the opposite. An admission that you are ignorant on a subject (or ignorant of answers,) does not preclude thoughtful examination. "Agnostic" just means, "without knowledge." People often self-identify as "agnostic" rather than "atheistic" when they don't have conclusive answers. Not having firm convictions leaves a lot of room for exploration and theorizing.

The SF novel Calculating God has a slightly different take on god in SF, for instance.

My suggestion is to take the ferry over on a day the library is open. Stop in at the library and talk to anyone you find. One of the librarians is a native. The other has been there awhile. Also the Peaks Island website. Go out on a Sunday and go to one of the churches. This book was written by women who live(d) there.

One of my old neighbors called living on the island a half-time job. That sounds about right. I liked the constraints of the ferry, but not everyone does.

Taxonomy-wise, for psychoactive cannabis plants it's either broadleaf cannabis or narrow leaf cannabis. Pure sativas are non psychoactive hemp producing.

You act as if it comes so easily to people to resist their deepest urges. Expecting somebody to kill themselves if they can't is ridiculous also. Sex is what drives us. Some people get fucked over by their own lusts and desires. I'm not saying that I'm okay with children being molested. It's a tragic. But things aren't so cut and dry. You should read Sex At Dawn. It's pretty interesting and dips into the subject. Might make you uncomfortable but how can you learn if you don't step outside of your own world view anyway?

u/pm-me--your--kitties · 1 pointr/Maine

I'm not 100% sure on this, but I do remember from history classes in college that the Native Americans would raze down the trees for their agriculture. There's a book on this that I read years ago which goes into much more detail on how they shaped the land. After most of them died (remember, something like 90% of them were killed, many before European colonization was in full swing), the forests starting coming back. It's hard for us now to fathom what New England look like before European settlement, since so much of their history is now lost.

>I don't see any reason at all to assume any Maine residents served in the Confederacy

now were talking fake news. none? that's more absurd than 7,600. Here i found at least one:

>And, in any case, anyone who claims the CW was fought for any reason other than slavery is flat out a lying sack of shit.

did you not even pay attention in high school? there were lot's of reasons. let's go with 90% slavery and 9% federal overreach. finally, let's go back to what lepage actually said, which was that property rights were the initial reasons. clearly it was slavery by the time the war started.
