I Don’t Get Why This Guy Is So Excited About Buying a Backwoods Maine Cabin
I am not entirely sure why this guy in the video below is thrilled about his cabin in the middle of what will soon be that CMP corridor, but maybe I am just not outdoorsy enough.
He says he bought the cabin just north of Bangor, and he is able to get wi-fi and some service, so he's not completely in the middle of nowhere. But still.
I do know that the whole, great outdoors movement has been fetishized in a way that makes me question whether it is authentic or not.
Once upon a time, the people of New England had to live in cabins in the woods because there was more land than people, and there was no electrical grid that you needed to be near.
As a born and raised New England boy, I have to say I feel as though our culture may be getting misappropriated.
People are doing it to do it, and I guess it would be a stretch to say that it's 'wrong,' but it does not feel 'right' either.
I don't know. What do you think? Would you buy a cabin in the Maine woods?
