>Ok George you got me on the Lobster, can’t say about the tourist?
Tourists? in Michigan? Come on, Maine is synonymous with "Vacation Land", it's on our license plates. We've even got different names for `em depending on where they come from- massholes from Massachusetts, summer complaints from New York, and New Jersey, blueheads from Florida, flatlanders for everyone else who's from "away".
We're so indoctrinated into the concept of vacations, even local folks have someplace to go for a while during the summer, no matter how poor they are. Sometimes it's just a parking place near a boat ramp, typically referred to as "camp". Folks go "up to camp" regardless of which direction they go.
