Hello folks!

Once again, there is an article mentioning Ad-Cane’s accomplishment via Appalachian Trail website – “If These People Can Hike the Appalachian Trail, So Can You”   It can be anywhere from a few months to years to complete the Appalachian Trail only if one is perseverance in pursuing it.  I am going to leave you with Ad-Cane’s quote:

“My goal is to show that dreams can become a reality for anyone, regardless of their personal challenges and struggles. I also want to expose the world to understand why Support Service Person (SSP) is extremely important to deaf and blind community.”  — Roger “Ad-Cane” Poulin

Enjoy rest of the summer, folks in the Northern Hemisphere!

The spring is around the corner, folks in the Southern Hemisphere!  )


Hello folks!

I am on break between vacation/journey/work, so I took a peek into ATDBDeaf gmail and found some email with link to one’s website or blog writing about Roger’s AT Journey.  Here are some links below for you to read:

Victory for Deaf-Blind Appalachian Trail Hiker

Need a shot of motivation?  Check out this story.  So cool.

“I wanted to quit, but I persevered.”

Enjoy reading and please take your time to thank these writers/bloggers!



We are in the Bangor Daily News – both online and in Saturday’s press (28-June-2014).

One might notice that an online video via Bangor Daily News is not accessible for everyone.  Not only Deaf and DeafBlind community do not have 100% access to the online video, the hearing and blind community don’t either (ASL is being used and no voice-overs being available).  Roger arrived in Seattle this morning and I am on vacation with my family exploring rest of the Maine for one more week.

The press was very last-minute arrangement by our beloved hiker, Tecolote (The Barbarian Utopia), who steadfastly supported us.  Many thanks to Tecolote  for making this happening!   Please accept our apology for video’s accessibility issue and please bear patience with us while we are working on making the video accessible for everyone.   Thank you.



Hello folks,

I just learned that Ad-Cane gave a presentation at University of Washington in Seattle, Washington USA on 9-April-2014.  Here is a link to an article about his presentation:

Great job, Ad-Cane!
