R.L. Posted September 8, 2019 Report Share Posted September 8, 2019 The wife and I both have a gazillion cc points we've both not used in years. Mine go back almost 20 years, so I decided to use some finally. The wife booked flights up to Portland for early Saturday a.m. and I booked a Jeep using mine. Got into PIA around 10, picked up my rental Wrangler and took off for the Great Moose Lake area where the property is located. After 2 hr's we finally reach Harmony, Maine. Beautiful area. The area is super remote with roads comprised of mostly "ledge" (granite rock formations) running for 50'+ at a time with 1-2ft drop offs in the road along the way!! The house was stunning as the photos in the ad clearly shows. Now the SHOCKER and MASSIVE DISAPPOINTMENT........somehow and I'm sure not by accident, the sellers agent and the seller just happened to leave out one "small" detail. NO F-ING OUTSIDE POWER!!!!!! We were in total disbelief. It is NOT connected to outside power. We could not believe it. We both felt sick for the first hour, then super depressed, but then realized this place would just not work for us, so even though it has a million dollar view and is built super well, this house was not going to work! The home is 100% solar with a large inverter, storage batteries and a small standby generator. Talk about a huge let down. I have a pretty well outfitted shop in Va with plasma cutter, 12" lathe, drill press, TIg ,MIG machines, Skat Blast cabinet, pedestal sander/grinders, gear drive Jett cut off band saw, and at the high end of power consumption an Anyang 88 power hammer for forging. I don't think that faggy solar setup is gonna run any of this. Since we were only scheduled to stay till Saturday PM we made emergency plans to see other properties while we were up there. We rolled into Solon ,Maine about 1 and found our first prospect, which turned out to be our only one from that point on. The wife found a really nice home she loves on 20+ acres with options on 50 more. We're making an offer today on that one. After signing off on the docusign cancellation, we are now released from the previous contract to make new offers. While inspecting the Solon property, we go around back to the garden (the folks still live there) and I can't believe my eyes....FRIGGING WEED growing in the garden , SKUNK no less. You could smell it from 20' !! Turns out it's now legal to grow weed in Maine. Not that it appeals to me, I don't smoke anything. I just was shocked. Massive cluster buds ready to harvest, with THC dripping off the hairs! Bet you weed heads are just wetting ur pants!! Anywho.... we're still moving to Maine, just not Harmony. Thanks for the Maine LEO info Mike. If I had another 30 years to worry about it, I might. With my limited time on terra firma, all I want is to do what I want to do and Fxxk all the Maine LEO that act like Barney Fife asshats. Not all LEO mind you, just the hotdogs that ruin it for the other good leo that are not idiots. BTW, If some of you have never visited Maine, right now is the beginning of the the best time to be there. Color is just now starting. Acadia is a place everyone should experience. Lots of water in Maine with trout brooks , tidal water and ocean everywhere. Can't wait to get situated. Best to all, R.L. 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
