We are back in Augusta after hiking from Caratunk, ME to at edge of Bigelow Preserve around 18 miles before Stratton, Maine.  After chatting with some hikers, Cane and I decided to hold off “215 miles” section between Glencliff, New Hampshire and Bigelow Preserve to next summer with better weather and trail condition. Right now, the trail is perpetually wet and muddy making it more difficult to hike and climb after passing of occasional showers.  “215 miles” section requires some technical climbing, climbing on some steep trail, and tremendous amount of time and effort to get through huge boulders (two hikers said that it took them 2.5 hours to get around, under and over the huge boulder field in length of one mile!  It is in Mahoosuc Notch area).  We are now working on how to get to New Hampshire from Augusta, Maine.  Hopefully, we will be able to resume our hiking soon!

Cane is his “old self” again.  We resumed our hiking yesterday after his parents dropped us off at Moxie Lake.  We arrived in Caratunk, Maine today to chill out.  We had some beers and relaxed in the hot tub at Northern Outdoors.  Tomorrow, we plan to hop on the ferry crossing Kennebec River then be on our way toward Stratton, Maine in few days.

Cane and I are back in Augusta once again. Poor Cane….he didn’t have a single of “good hiking day” for 4 days in row – dealt with cramps in his stomach area and left side of his rib, so we got off the trail around 16 miles before Caratunk in middle of nowhere (Moxie Lake, Maine) a couple of days ago. He is going to see his doctor today. Please continue with praying and hoping for the best for him.

We went to Cane’s orthopedic doctor today and he gave his blessing.  So thrilled!  We plan to resume our hiking south from Monson, Maine toward Caratunk for next few days.  Hardly wait to get back into hiking stride once again.  😎  Thanks for all of your supports. prayers and cheers!

Hey folks, guess what?!?! We are back! We are going to hike from Monson, Maine to Caratunk, Maine then to Stratton, Maine for next few days. It is so good to be back on the trail. The weather is gorgeous –
in high 70’s and cloudy and sunny. Heard from a few friends of mine that the trail in Maine is daunting challenge especially with rock climbing. We plan to take one step at a time. Until next time, folks! 🙂
