I’m currently spending the winter at my cabin deep in the Maine Woods (December 2020 – May 2021). I invite you to join me as I experience the joys and challenges of remote, off-the-grid living at Achor, my backwoods home—and as I roam the woods in search of new wonders—by reading the blog posts below and by subscribing to my blog.
In the spring of 2019, I hiked the easternmost segment of the coast-to-coast American Discovery Trail, starting on the Delaware shore and heading to West Virginia, teaching and learning along the way. You can jump directly to the story of this two-month pilgrimage by clicking here.

The Maine Woods are the realm of moose and lynx, eagles and brook trout, rugged mountains and whitewater rivers. In nighttime satellite photos, the forest is a large black island of darkness that stands in sharp contrast to the white froth of human lights all around. There are millions of acres to explore. From 2011-2019, I shared my wanderings through this wild-feeling region in photo-essays that I posted on Facebook; you will find a sampling here. I chronicle my adventures from 2020 onward in my blog below.
