Some of the guys, @grizzcrazy in particular have wanted to see a little more about what Maine looks like. Here are some links that show it pretty well. Get a cup of coffee, relax, enjoy.
Yes the similarities are the same. Grand Rapids Mi is one of the nicest cities, if not the nicest in our state, for a large city.
Yes now I see the foliage, hadn't watched all the vids.I thought some of the scenery videos I posted showed some of that. Maine has stunning fall foliage. We have millions of acres of mixed forest, red and sugar maple, beech, oak, aspen, birch, ash, cherry, etc. mixed with the dark greens of the pine, spruce, fir, hemlock and tamarack. There are awesome atv trails that take you way up into the blueberry barrens where you ride across a couple thousand acre blueberry field in brilliant red with the forest in the background in full fall colors. It is breathtaking.
Ya Mi has a lot of lakes and of course the Great Lakes, so the boating and fishing are very popular.@biknboat, I talk to folks from Michigan all the time. One of the major parts of the business I work for is boat propeller sales and service. We have been in the Top 10 for inboard prop sales in the country for Michigan Wheel Marine out of Grand Rapids for the past 3 years in a row. Michigan Wheel is the largest propeller manufacturer in the world. We also handle props for Acme Marine out of Big Rapids. Everyone from out there that I have ever dealt with over the past 20+ years have been polite, respectful, friendly, and decent to work with.
Great videos! Looks interesting!https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-FcEz7eK9LM
Check these out, it's what some of the lobstermen and us propeller and engine guys do for fun when we're not riding Grizzlies. You hear those Maine accents, now you know how I talk, ha, ha!
