Perhaps after this virus clears up all out of state people should stay home for the following year.
Let us see how the state of Maine handles that!!!

That’s not how it’s meant to be taken.

Calm down a bit.

No one wants their system run down / depleted.

I have lived both ways (tourist vs a local outnumbered by tourists) and I understand both ways. Most ‘arguments’ are misunderstandings.

Locals can’t survive without the tourists, but without locals there would be little or no opportunity to be a tourist. Both camps have to work with this.

If everyone had that attitude I would agree that they can stay home. Forever, not just the next year. It’s not meant to be personal. Don’t take it that way. The population up there is aging, people are Sometimes too stubborn to seek medical attention, and the resources aren’t what they are down south. It’s the last two weeks of a marginal season for most of the state. It’s not the end of the world.

Also, just so people realize the extent of the situation, if you flybto Florida from NY you are made to do a 2 week self quarantine or face fines and prosevution. They take all your info at the airport and do a follow up.

Any outrage ? Should we ban Florida in following years

No one is flying to Maine to go snowmobiling. Are we now going to post police at states borders and have roadblocks? Think about the scenes from 'Grapes of Wrath' where the police are telling you to 'move on .... you can't stay here' or 'Unless you have a job you're not entering' .... enough is enough.

It was an extreme example, but still, a real and current example. Read it a few times and maybe you’ll understand why I used it. Not as a threat or wish but why try to understand why states/towns are doing what they are doing. Jeez.

Listen, I have 450 homes in my piece of the world, 400 are owned by out of staters. Lots are up here now. I’m not telling them to go home. I’m fine with them here. Just don’t go hoarding everything we all need. Just convenience stores here. We food shop 45-60 minutes away depending on my driving speed.

So far everything has been fine. Been a week or so now that they all came up.

Makes sense to me, plus it’s sounds like the wardens are home too, so god forbid something happens and no one is coming to help...seems like a small price to pay, esp this late in the season *and* no grooming....can feel the miles of studder bumps now ;-) and yes I’m sick of this shit as much as the next guy..cheers!
