It began in San Francisco with a phone call from a guy I hadn’t seen in three years. Within a month I was hitchhiking across the United States, in the dead of winter, logging in Idaho, working as a day laborer in Minnesota, and landing in a log cabin in a field 1/2 mile from a plowed road in Northern Maine with no electricity or running water. The log cabin owners weren’t happy when my sister Jill and Rick’s friend Chip joined us, so we were evicted into a snow bound bread van behind their cabin. This is the first third of a book describing the hilarious and rugged experiences I shared with three dear friends: homesteading in northern Maine, building a log cabin, logging our land with a horse, raising bees, growing an organic garden, and digging our own spring. Follow me on my crazy trip across this great country in 1973 and meet the characters that stay in my memory as vivid as the day I met them. It’s a good laugh and a great ride. It is the gathering of the four people who will spend the longest and most remembered summer of their lives.
