    So then what if my house sits directly on top of that line? Am I a southerner or a northerner?

    You get to pick.
    I have no enemies, but I'm intensely disliked by my friends.

    A wise friend of mine once defined Southern Maine as "South and West of the Kennebec". I've always defined myself as a "Northern Mainer" due to graduating from high school in Hampden. However, I lived for years as a kid in Rumford and have spent the last 17 years or so in the Waterville area. Now I have a complex!

    Why can't we get a government sponsered tick eradication program?

    Interesting given the fact the Kennebec starts near Moosehead lake! Coburn Gore is South and west of that, I never would have considered that Southern Maine!

    It is also interesting how many ways we ca come up with to define the N-S lines, and no one seems concerned about E-W. And what about Central Maine, do we just leave that area out?

    I'm just saying, equal talk for all areas! As far as I am concerned, I have to drive to get to Northern Maine, I have to drive to get to Southern Maine, I have to drive to get to Eastern Maine, I have to drive to get to Western Maine, therefore I must not live in any of them. So I'm either Central Maine or I am Homeless!

    Hey BRDAD I agree with you! You are in Central Maine!

    How about that!

    Now, About that DownEast thing???
    I'd really rather not cache, but I am helpless in the grip of my compulsion!

    I always figured anything south of Houlton was southern Maine. And the tide for the nearest ocean waters is only about 15 inches up here. Only difference is you guys have snow this winter and all we get is cold and an inch or so of snow every once and a while.
    We hate mindless caches placed in the woods without a reason, nothing but the cache in a plastic bag on a tree.
