So I live in Maine myself, and Augusta actually isn't that bad, I lived there once and it's a pretty nice place, not saying that it is perfect or isn't the worst, but you give it a much worse rap than it should get, you make it sound like a ghetto town, which, i'll be honest, it ain't. I would recommend spending a fair amount of time in each city on this list, then remake it, and I would say 1 month is a good amount of time for each city. And like everyone else is saying, your videos repeat the same sentences. Not trying to hate, just saying that you should try to spend time in these cities before saying how bad they really are.
