That was fab-u! You are such a clever fellow thanks a ton for taking the time to give me some info. May I bleed your brain a wee more please? I am from the midwest USA and moved to Europe about 10 years ago, I do not know NE but have always fantasized about it (my husband loves US history, we both love the seashore, I love antiques and old architecture and neither of us like hot climates = good match for Maine?). We am returning shortly from Ireland and like Maine as it is similar to Ireland in many ways from the photos. I also love big old homes and can afford this in Maine near some viable towns for employment but not so much in NH. We don't have kids and won't have them. And we don't need to commute to Boston and would work locally in Maine or I may open my own antique/fine art business while my husband is in the medical field. What is that weird car tax registration thing I read about online? Is that unique to NH? That is a great idea about driving over the border for cheaper rates, we do that now by driving to Northern Ireland on the weekends (1.5 hr drive each way) to do shopping. Would you say based on all this, Maine is an equally good choice? Are there any perks to Maine I am unaware of?
Believe or not I have already done a chart of the NE states (how anal am I?), now I need to reduce it to just Maine vs NH and add in what you mentioned. Thanks a bunch, charts are super.
