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!
