There are folks here...really!! We are in SW Maine in a quiet little, unfortunately too conservative town, but love our cheap living, old farmhouse, and lots of land, to even consider leaving. Our boys are part of a fantastic homeschooling coop in Gorham and there definitely seems to be lots more activity in that neck of the woods, as well as of course Portland area and along the coast, but then you'll be paying at least twice as much for housing. There are also some great groups in Portsmouth. We are here...just dug in for winter apparently.
Good luck and give a heads up if you end up out this way!
