I also grew up in Maine (Lewiston) but moved to the south a while ago.
I'm not at all surprised about someone being undetected for that long of a time. There's so much wilderness in Maine that's untouched, it's the
only redeeming quality of that state for me. No offense to you who still live there, it's just not my kinda place to live.
We most certainly locked our doors, not just at night, but they were locked all the time. Lewiston was never a great city, but it's 100x worse these
days than say, 10-15 years ago. I grew up in projects/downtown Lewiston and while it's size has NOTHING on a major city like NYC/Boston/Chicago/etc,
it's an infestation of welfare receiving drunks and they're punk kids.
Sure, there are PLENTY of camps in the woods that are left unlocked. A family friend has a camp in Wilton that's left unlocked year round for anyone
who is in the area and wants to stay a night. Good luck finding it, though.
Trust me, no one has given away any 'secrets' about Maine that will get the state flooded with thieves breaking into summer homes. Some of those
mountain/wood folk will shoot your ass dead if they catch ya messing with their homes. They've got more to be worried about with places like Lewiston
and Livermore Falls expanding at an extreme rate with nothing but white trash.
