“Trust Me: In These Parts, Hot Dogs Actually Repel Bears.” | Outdoor Skills | OutsideOnline.com

I should write a book, after my sorry episodes following “outdoor misinformation” while backpacking across 22 States.

Now that I am one of those actual Maine Guides that tend to dress in plaid wool jackets (as of Nov. 2014) , I see this from a different angle.

It’s true- I no longer publicize some outdoor places that I love best ( because there are times when there are too many people for me to stay there), but it’s also true that I share this info with people who I feel need to know it.
