Announcement - Maine Expedition 2012
Around the end of this month Im heading out to meet up with my good friend and fellow woods Bum Tim Smith of Jack Mountain Bushcraft & Guide service in Masardis, Maine.
I will hop on the Amtrak in Benson, Arizona and take it to meet Tim for our 3000 mile drive to Maine - cant wait! it will be a good time, filled with great conversation and lots of pageantry AND perhaps a few shenanigans.
My friend and I are pretty much polar opposites in our wilderness skills but share a similar intellect which makes hanging out together fun - and Adventurous.
Teddy Roosevelt once described his Maine wilderness guides Bill Sewall and William Dowd thusly;
"They were tough, hardy, resolute fellows, quick as cats, strong as bears, and able to travel like bull moose."
Not at all unlike Tim Smith.
I will be offline for a good while in Maine due to our 28 day canoe expedition, as far as we know it is the longest education based wilderness canoe expedition in North America....I'm looking forward to it.
