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!
