    + if I'm not mistaken, recreational is now legal and there may be a dispensary or 2 on the Main street? I was there in October 2022 when the law was just passed and things were in motion. I'm hoping to be back there again in September this year to head North to Katahdin to complete the trail. OR hmmmm, or should I go up to Maine and head sobo???
