Portland, Maine USA | A Continuous Lean.

Portland, Maine USA

Apr 8th, 2009 | Categories: Video | by Michael Williams

My pal Mark and I spent the early part of the week on a top secret mission in Maine. Since we were driving through Portland, we took the opportunity to meet up with my buddy Jay Carroll from Rogues Gallery. Stories were told, oysters were eaten and beers were downed. The promo for our upcoming reality show is below. Be cautioned, watching this will add nothing to your life. More from the trip soon…

    Dialogue or not, the video instigates desire to make the trek up to Maine and ingest some seaside culture… and food.

    Reality show thing was a joke, BTW. Although, I could be into doing “biggest loser” if any of those producers are reading.

    P.S. Joking again about BL.

    Coastal Maine is lovely. Though I’ve never been there in calendar months 1-5, the video shows it seems no different.

    I’m going to retire to there, and never leave, and have my grandchildren stay all summer long. Sadly, I have no plans to retire (ever) and have no grandchildren.

    Looks like a promo for “Brokeback Harbor”.

    Just kidding. Maine still has raw New England everywhere. It gets WAY too cold in the winter to suffer from over popularity.

    Sweet cardigan as well.

    Charles — Maine actually does have a sprawl problem, cold weather notwithstanding. I lived in Brunswick (just north of Portland) for several years in the early 2000s. During that time, great swaths of pine forest in the Brunswick-Topsham area were replaced by housing developments. I’d be running along a beautiful trail that I’d known for years and suddenly pop out into a bright empty gash that smelled of pine pitch. It seemed to happen overnight. Depressing.

    It’s terrible that I can’t tell if the responses are sarcastic or not.

    NEnglander,

    I believe it. I guess I was comparing Maine to the circus that is the Cape & Islands, where I was born and visit more often. I did spend a good amount of my tween summers in Scarborough in the early 90′s and try to make it up to the grandparent’s summer place in Rockport, which feels a lot more laid back in the warmer months than pretty much anywhere in coastal MA.

    Cheers.
