More Adventures & Next LAC Gathering ☀️AdventureBlog April 20, 2022
For those of you who know me, I’m a planner and I plan far in advance. To this point, I’m planning a summer adventure for you right now. The LAC is partnering with L.L. Bean on Wednesday, July 13th for a LAC-only sunset/full moon tandem kayak adventure led by the Outdoor Discovery Program folks.
Date: July 13th
Time: 7-10 p.m.
Leaves from L.L. Bean’s paddling center in Freeport
All paddling gear provided
Cost is $79/person
If you’d like one of the 14 spots, please call the reservation center at 888-270-2326 to make your reservation. Mention the Ladies Adventure Club when you call. It promises to be a fabulous evening adventure!
If canoeing is more your jam, check out the outfitter, Allagash Canoe Trips, a fabulous outfitter based out of Greenville. I’ve paddled both the Allagash and the St. John rivers with them. Right now, they’re offering a 20% discount for their May 15th-20th St. John trip. The guides cook all the (delicious) food, clean up the dishes, and take care of everything except the paddling and setting up and taking down of your tent. It’s a true wilderness retreat. Here are a couple of photos from last May.
And if you’re curious about rock climbing, reach out to Noah at Equinox Guiding Service. The LAC has participated in a few very successful and fun ice climbing trips with this outfit and I know that the rock climbing adventures are equally exciting.
