400 Miles From The St. Lawrence To Penobscot Bay By Canoe

I came across a great trip journal of two guys who paddled-poled-sailed solo canoes 400 miles along an old route from the St. Lawrence River, across Quebec, New Brunswick and Maine to the Atlantic Ocean in Penobscot Bay. It’s a great story of an amazing journey. Read it here. From their description:

Welcome to my journal of a month-long, 400 mile canoe trip from sea level in Quebec, up through uplands of Maine and back to sea level in Penobscot Bay. Sorry, I couldn’t resist adding long-loading images to the pages, but I still enjoy gazing at the details. You can click through the days, one at a time. To return to a previous day, return to this calendar and click on the date you want to read. At any time, you can click on the [Route] link and bring up a small pop-up window with a map of the route. Enjoy! – Matt Hopkinson

Their route took them right by our new place on the Aroostook River. You can read more of their adventures at their Voodoo Canoe! site.

Anything that appears to be an error in spelling or grammar is actually the author’s clever use of the vernacular, and as such is not an error, but rather a carefully placed literary device demonstrating prodigious artistic prowess.
