      Denver sucks. The food is inedible. Every single meal, if it were up to Denverites, would be wet burritos. That’s all they eat. Wet burritos. There are so many crack-smoking schizophrenic homeless people that it becomes a permanent fixture of your eyes, always one or two twitching under the cover of a blanket while tying off against an abandoned storefront, or squatting against a wall of a middle school to squeeze out a diseased yellow torrent of diarrheal spray over a pile of used needles. One can hardly step foot outdoors without seeing a display of abject human degeneracy, and one needs only to remain outside for a period of ten minutes or more to hear the demented yelling of vulgarities that tweaking ghouls cast about the neighborhoods they terrorize. The architecture is tasteless glass skyscrapers intermingled with the once-robust failing brick building of earlier times. Even among the not drug addicted, the normal people are comprised still only of thugs and three-toothed thieves. The only redeemable part of Denver is it’s proximity to nature, which, ironically, means that the only good part of Denver is when you leave Denver.

      Colorado is a big state. There’s a lot to love about it, and you don’t need to live in Denver to enjoy any of it.

    I sold my house in CA and had a major surplus of funds to purchase a great deal of property in Maine. I had to outbid several people on it so be prepared to possibly pay more than you initially thought but at the prices you can pick property up for, it is a win/win.
    I have several friends looking to move there too. CA is just too much to bare these days sadly.

      This is what retards do. Always lowball at least 20% off what is asking price. Even if they say no it seals the deal for getting it at what was listed. Imagine paying MORE than asking price. Imbecile.

      MOST of the californians who move to other states are at least right adjacent so it's not as if they're moving there to fuck it all up.
      they're bringing money and value to your broke ass states.

    Maine sucks. Lived and worked there for 15 years. Expensive real estate, super out of shape populace, no culture (everything is fake, prefab larping as old Maine if not just a nondescript gas station), an alarming amount of pedophiles, and a bit of a food desert, to boot.
    I thought it was going to be this chic, white, WASPy enclave and it was just New England's Walmart. Everyone has a CPAP machine and talks about it, endlessly. Oldest average population in the country. A lot of mobility issues.
    And stay the fuck away from Portland unless you like maudlin junkies, dirty lawyers, super Karens, and libs with PCOS, long Covid, and Subarus full of McFlurry cups.
    Try West Virginia, Idaho, Montana or North Dakota instead.

      Maine is great to live in but i'd strongly recommend against southern maine - personally just moved out of portland because I couldn't stand it. Both the local culture and economy are catered towards tourism and it's obnoxious. Portland and its suburbs are an awful place to live in if you're looking for work that isn't an entry level career with no advancement and the cost of living in horrible for what it's worth. Expect to pay $800+ a month (if you're lucky) on rent. Suburbs also aren't worth it because the cost of living is going up FAST - I couldn't afford to move back to my hometown even if I wanted to. If you want a comfy life in maine, buy actual property in either rural northern or western maine.

          Almost 10k a year. If you make 40k post tax that 25% of your salary just being donated to a landlord for the privilege of having shelter and if you don't pay once all your shit gets kicked to the curb and ruined. You build no equity. $800 a month down the drain for nothing absolutely nothing.

      Maine is great if you arent in the middle of a shit town/city. The ocean, the winters, the forests, the lack of morons, safe from the insanity of big cities. If you like the typical social shit obviously you should go to a big city, when the people run out of food and start getting served bugs you might want to get the fuck out of there though.

        just as disgusting as any other city. seriously. plus rent is too much for what you get. but at least you arent buying cords of wood. also what peninsula?

        heres what i do: visit the bigger towns (not cities) on google street view. rate them. take the best 3 and triangulate somewhere between. proceed to bet your savings against finding work nearby. then, try living there.

            there are other places doing it better with less. ellsworth is probably most recognizable but still a shithole. as for scarborough i get the impression of 1 big strip mall, reminds me a lot of florida. you get transplants who end up getting stuck, in fact the only homeless dude i talked to there was from florida.

            but its all much more of an urban hellhole than other places especially because of this spitball tourism situation, which imo is a bit misplaced and undeserving; and now the residents have to wade thru the fallout in their daily routine. its fucking psychological torture being there. i know this cuz they come up to belfast and bitch about it.

            and tourists are retards right? well they fucking LOVE portland and the greater metro area down to scarb. i say this because you rarely see a new york or mass. plate, or a rental, any farther north or outside of bar harbor, where the awesome stuff actually is.

            ideally, as a tourist, you would visit maine to canoe or sail or some outdoorsy bullshit. not sit in traffic for 2 hrs just to order a lobster whipped up by a lousy underpaid overworked wagecuck whose dying to fucking leave portland metro some day. i will admit it gets so much nicer north and south of all that even on the major highways.

            anyways i really hope you buy your suburban shithole house that way i still stand a chance in fucking t2r9. just dont get anything < 50 acres otherwise you will be facing that dumb crowd at every grocery trip. oh and the winter will not save you from it either. these same idiots love to go up to rockland to "ski".. so, long term? go to some of the whiter counties in SD, WY, WV, or TN ig.. -not that op

      Yes. Last summer I was up there were many people are driving alone masked up, same with people walking without a soul near them. every other house had BLM paraphernalia. Some houses had several sings and flags. I'm sure most of them have added Ukrainian flags. In turn people were really unfriendly.

      I know that none of this is unique to Brunswick but its obviously a sign of a sick culture.

    Boomer here. It's funny you kids are creaming your jeans about Maine. My generation always knew Maine was the shitiest state in the union. No one wanted to live there. Then because millennials refuse to get jobs Obama, Bush, Trump and Biden had to import 88 million Latinaxes and Latrinos to replace your labor, polluting the entire country forevermore and driving up rents. Now you're like omergawd I heart Maine but it's so expensive. Heck you could have bought houses with 20 acres a few years ago for $25,000. And now it's full of blacks too do you guys regret voting for Obama who spitefully diversified Maine? Of well, you made your bed bitch boys. Toodleooo , oh and I always get a chuckle how you kids have to fly to Thailand to lose your virginity, back in the day we just went outside and talked to girls at the soda parlor.
