Dan called on Sunday night from Jackman, Maine. This is the last motel in which they will stay and the last cell phone coverage they will have for the duration of their trip. On Saturday they completed the most difficult portion of the trip: an upstream paddle/carry/walk the canoe through Spencer Stream. Dan said they haven’t seen the black flies, yet, but that the mosquitoes are “wicked”. There are two more stores along their route—one on Monday and one on Wednesday. Other than that, they will see only water and trees and sky (hopefully, blue!).
The expected pick-up date in Fort Kent is June 10!
