    All kinds of house lots going in along Caribou Pond Rd. I believe there is already a Reddington Estates off Rt 27.

    Its really surprising how nice that trail is coming down from Old Speck. The AT is all beat to death and then once you are on the GNLT you are on a nice, thick, soft, carpeted trail.

    I got a free Veterans Park pass the last time we stopped at the Saco Ranger office. The Androscoggin Ranger office has always been closed any time we stopped in there, even before Covid.

    I think I will be officially retired, collecting social security and a pension and living as a nomad in a converted cargo trailer. I think I'll go view it in Texas.

    For some reason, I think he's not that experienced with Winter hiking, certainly not with the changing conditions Spring brings. He reminds me of the two runners that were rescued off Lafayette...

    His real name is Scott Morra. He posted his mea culpa's on Facebook, too. He's a pretty passionate hiker. He probably died a bit inside after "post-holing" the trail.
