Please help with suggestions about moving to Maine 

Sorry about posting this to a camping forum but you never know where you will or won't get good suggestions so I'm trying every place I can think of. If anyone can suggest better places to ask as well I would sure appreciate it.

I'm interested in trying to move to Maine some time in early to mid summer, preferably in an area fairly close to Sugarloaf though far enough from that specific location to find less expensive opportunities for buying a house. People don't have to warn me that it will be cold. That's one of the main reasons for wanting to move up there. I would very much like to be in a place where I can ride a snowmobile to the trails without having to trailer if possible. I currently work at a wastewater treatment plant in the state of Georgia but have gotten my class 3 operator license in Maine in the hopes of being able to find a job in that field. I certainly want to have a job before moving up there. I plan on making a trip up to that area probably some time in February to experience the area in the winter and also try to find out about possible job opportunities. I've been trying to make a list of wastewater treatment plants within about 60 or so miles but further away would be okay also though less desirable. The wastewater plants I've found through Google all seem to be publicly run facilities but I'd be glad for any opportunity including a plant run by some sort of business. The place where I work now is a very small plant run by a resort.

Any suggestions on specifically how to proceed with this, or specific locations of treatment plants (especially privately run since public ones are easier to find with Google maps) or any kind of specific information about that area, or Farmington area, or any places in what seems to me the central part of the state would be very much appreciated. Also suggestions about areas where there might be lower priced real estate options in that part of the state. Also any snowmobiling related information or suggestions. I'm thinking I would like to volunteer for some trail grooming if it would be possible since that would add another whole level of learning and experience.

Thank you for any help or suggestions!

Re: Please help with suggestions about moving to Maine 
My wife and I have been camping in Maine for going on 24 years now. We have ended up every year in Boothbay camping for the the last 20 years! Yep we love it and will keep on going back. They call that part of Maine the Mid Coast. Things are pretty laid back just like parts of GA. Great small towns and some have some great history to go along with them. And the town s have great places to eat and shop. And not everything is geared to the tourist. Talk about plants and you will have to go to the Boothbay Botanical Gardens! It is the second largest botanical gardens in the country!
My wife and I just love that area of Maine and look so forward to going up Maine Way every year!

Good Luck!
