100-Mile Wild: 

From February 23rd til March 4th, 5th or 6th (we don't know how long it's going to take), our hardy crew of three will be traveling the length of northern Maine's 100-Mile Wilderness on the Appalachian Trail. From Monson to Abol Bridge, the 100MW is considered by many to be the most rugged and remote section of the AT. From all the research we've done, it looks like we might be the first to complete this thing in its entirety in the middle of winter. Follow along here to see how it goes!

What's The Point?

Simply put, adventure. We want to see if we can do it. After last years 8-day ski circumnavigation of Baxter State Park we wanted to up the ante, and doing something that few, if any, have done before sounded like the right kind of challenge. Plus, it's right in our big backyard!
