June 2013 News

Highlights: No newsletter last month because we were off the grid in the North Maine Woods.  We had a great 4-week canoe course in May, and I’m out of the woods with surprisingly few bug bites.  The month started with a stretch of hot and dry weather.  It was 85 degrees and there was a fire ban on the day we put in on Chase Pond at the beginning of the course.  It didn’t take long for the rain to start, though, and once it did it rained off and on (mostly on) for the rest of the month.  It stayed cool, which kept the bugs at bay.  We covered a lot of ground and got into some great fishing.  We ran the Aroostook and paddled the headwater lakes of the Allagash, and had a great time doing it.

  • Look forward to seeing more about the course. Thanks, Chris

  • Hi Chris, I’m back in the thick of it again – starting two weeks of programs at our field school. I hope to get more up about the recent trip soon.

Typos, Etc.
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.
