Coming into the country (What did I miss?)

Photo: Bob Martin

I just spent the better part of a week climbing Katahdin in Maine, and boy do I have the blisters to prove it.

Maine is…extraordinary.  More to come on that front.

But as always, I felt huge exhilaration at coming home into “our” North Country, crossing the ferry across Lake Champlain, driving up the Saranac River valley.

So it’s glad to be home and we’ll get the In Box ramped up to full speed again today.

Meanwhile, what did I miss?  Any big issues, events, ideas that you think I should catch up on?  Comments welcome below.

    I was right! He was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

    Brian, do you think that we should have the same kind of restrictions that they have in Baxter to protect some areas like the eastern high peaks? It is pretty hard to climb Kathadin on a whim, and you better not bring your dog!

    It’s pretty quiet here Brian. Tell us something about how they do it in Maine that would improve the way we do it here.

    Pretty quiet? I’m sure that was a mistake on your part tooth. As you now there is a missing 18-year old from Tupper Lake. I was pleased to see NCPR finally give some real attention to this instead of regurgitating facts and updates from other media outlets. I guess the news stops when Brian goes away. All we get are stupid reports about record high temperatures. Sorry to vent but radio is very important in missing person cases and I feel NCPR dropped the ball.

    wakeup –

    NCPR has a very small news staff. Unfortunately while I was gone, we had one more staff member out with an illness. The remaining crew did the best they possibly could, pulling long hours.

    –Brian, NCPR

    I think everyone understands Wakeup’s frustration. I’m sure we all are praying for good news on this out of Tupper Lake soon.
