Augusta shoutout from Howard! I reside in Maine, and I can give travel tips... Not that they'll be requested. Stay out of Bangor, there's nothing there. Stick near the ocean i.e. Portland, Camden, Freeport, Boothbay. The further north, the crazier the people. There's one town so far north that there's maybe 20 people, and they have Canadian area code phone numbers yet they refuse to just become Canada.
Howard was right about it being like it's own thing. People are born here and never leave. The accent is strange, almost Boston mixed with Cajun. Lots of bastardized French names and words. I moved here as a kid and it's odd... I have to get out soon.
But it is really nice to visit for a week or two in the summer (or winter if you ski).

My Dad grew up eating a lot of moose! His family was poor so his older brothers did a lot of hunting. He did not have good things to say about the taste.
I've only had it once, but it's a lot better than deer... Pretty healthy, up there with steak and stuff. Think steak but gamey.
