About ten years ago I came across someone making snowshoes using your book. I ordered a copy and built several pair which my much older children are still using.
Last fall I glanced at your website again and noticed your books on the Allagash. Many years ago several friends had canoed the area but I never made the trip.
The books and map went to the top of my Christmas wish list and made great winter reading!
This spring my now 20 year old son lined up a summer job that gave him the last two weeks of August off before going back to college.
My first question to him was, 'Do you want to take a week and canoe in Maine?'
We just returned from a seven day trip from Eagle Lake to Allagash village! The wind was out of the south on all the lakes, it only rained when we were in camp, and we had just enough water to get through the lower portion of the river! What more could you ask for............
I would not have attempted the trip without the use of your well written books.
With the books I had a great idea of what to expect and was fully prepared.
Thanks ........... Your books provided the impetus to make the trip with my son.
