The Maine Appalachian Trail; Sep 9th (1887mi) to Sep 21st (2070mi)

Maine. My home state, the final state on the northbound Appalachian Trail, the second longest state on the AT and arguably the most primitive and natural section of trail on the entire 2200 mile journey. Within miles of crossing the New Hampshire border we came face to face with what we call the most difficult … Continue reading The Maine Appalachian Trail; Sep 9th (1887mi) to Sep 21st (2070mi)

The Party is Over and Just Keep Paddling – The Aqua Blaze Part II

It took us two days to make … Continue reading The Party is Over and Just Keep Paddling – The Aqua Blaze Part II
