No Power, No Problem!

The electricity has been out for about an hour and a half, with no idea when we’re going to get it back. I needed coffee so I got out my Four Dog Stove Bushcooker LT1, fired it up in alcohol mode, boiled up some water, then poured it through my MSR filter within my Daybreak Cafe mug ( from Goose Bay, Labrador) settled into that quiet, satisfied place on this last day of 2011. Sometimes being a hiker helps.

I'm sixty-seven and live in the Maine woods. I thru-hiked the Appalachian Trail in 2007, the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, Vermont's Long Trail in 2011, and the Continental Divide Trail in 2013 . I am outdoors every day. I offer guided backpacking trips and classes in Maine, through "Uncle Tom's Guided Adventures".
