Maine Real Estate For Sale !


Trip To Maine This 4th Of July Weekend..To Camp. What Is Camping To You?

Is pulling into a lake lot cottage with full bath, microwave, satelite tv and video games for the kids your idea of "camping"?

Or is hiking with a 60 pound back pack up into a remote tent site and drinking hot black coffee at sunrise in the woods your desire?  Or something in between?  The word camping is wide in meaning for folks making the trek to Maine this summer.  Some "campers" strap on cross country skis, and shoe shoe thru ice and snow to a summit of a mountain to crawl into a tent with gas heater. No power, no people, just the wide open Maine outdoors.  Depending on your age and stamina, camping can mean many things to Maine bound real estate buyers. Over and over I hear the comment that "we just want to get away..feel cramped and crowded where we live now".  Maine countryside has more deer and moose than people...with 11 people per square mile in Northern Maine, find the space you need.  Complete the wide open feeling with lake loons singing, birds chirping, water roaring down a rock cascade, and all with the back drop of mountains, rolling fields and little development or traffic!
Maine...the way life should be.

Beautiful country. However, my idea of camping comes with a Holiday Inn Express.

Andrew, regardless of the accommodations - tent, camper, cabin - camping means woods, outdoors, and plenty of coffee. For a great experience, try being a Scoutmaster for a week to a group of 15-20 teenage boys. :)

Steve, Are you a scoutmaster too?  For me it is getting the kids away from light, away from technology.. If it were always up to me I would do the hike in camping most of the time... But cut it back to 40lbs!!!!  I have a poste "hiking in NJ" where my son and I did part of the AT...

Hot coffee a must for sure whatever you are doing! Teaching kids how to rough it, cook on a fire, deal with rain and bugs, and to enjy the beauty of outdoors is key! How do you think Daniel Boone did it? Dirt floor cabin, shoot your supper, catch some fish, split some wood. No direct tv or dish to watch reality tv on!

This is really some beautiful country that you highlight! Now that I am in Knoxville, Tennessee the Great Smokey Mountains are all around for a day (or multi-day) hike! As Robert said in his comment, we have our share of the Appalachian Trail here too! I also know that it terminates near you on Mt. Katahdin!

BTW, you might want to consider posting some of these great highlights in the Traveling Rainers Group! You might very well attract some visitors to the Vacationland!
