April showers bring may flowers and a great summer!
As always it is busy here at Mahoosuc as we transition from dog sledding trips to preparing for canoeing trips this spring, summer and fall. We do have room left on a few trips, click here to see our canoe trip schedule.
We had to say good bye to Travis on Easter Sunday, April 17th. He was one of Polly’s dogs and usually ran in the wheel position, right in front of the sled. At his peak he was 100 pounds and Polly used to call him “her giraffe” as he was so tall and long legged. He loved people and was a very hard worker. Travis was 12 years old and had one winter of retirement here in our house in the doggy retirement community. He will be missed.
It looks like we will have a very busy summer with canoe trips. Here are a couple videos to “wet your whistle” for a Mahoosuc canoe adventure/experience:
Canoe/cultural experience with the Penobscots, our Way of the Wabanaki trip, August and September.
Your guides, Polly & Kevin, on the Thoreau/Wabanaki canoe trip. Kevin was the guide as they retraced Henry David Thoreau and Penobscot guide, Joe Polis’ route when he wrote the book the Maine Woods.
On April 9th Polly received the Legendary Maine Guide Award voted on by the Inland Fisheries and Wildlife of Maine department at the Professional Maine Guides award ceremony and annual banquet in Brewer, Maine. This is quite an honor and only received by one Registered Maine Guide per year. It was also a surprise, gulp!
We were able to do our canoe trips later this year as the weather has been unusually warm and beautiful! Here in the Bear River Valley our fall colors are past peak and the leaves are starting to fall. Temperatures remain very comfortable to do outside projects. There is a chill in the air at […]
Siobhan went to doggy heaven today. She was one of Kevin’s dogs and always up for anything. She loved people and children and whenever anyone came to visit the kennel she always thought they came to see her! She ran in any position in the team and was versatile sometimes going with Polly’s teams if […]
August was a busy month for trips here at Mahoosuc! We have a couple trips left for this season, our Way of the Wabanaki trip September 14-17th (there is still some space) and a couple West Branch of the Penobscot River trips which are contract trips with groups of friends. Kevin guided our Arctic Wildlife […]
I can’t say enough about what a great trip this has been! It was such a pleasure to see the way a trip really should be run. You move so quietly and efficiently to accomplish setting up camp, producing wonderful meals, taking care of everyone.
