Some people think food grows in grocery stores. Others must believe that elves, trolls and/or trail fairies maintain Maine's portion of the Appalachian Trail (AT).
The truth will be made known to the entire world (or at least those who attend) on Wednesday, August 7, 2013, when members of the Maine Appalachian Trail Club share their experiences preserving the AT.
While basking in the air-conditioned comfort of the Strand Cinema in Skowhegan, you'll hear what it's like to work on the trail when it's wicked hot and wickeder cold.
Trail maintainers keep the AT alive and well.
They could always use the help of other unsung heroes who are willing to break a nail or exercise outside of a gym filled with mirrors and The Spandex People.
There will be stories galore and demonstrations of the tools of the trail from MATC members: Craig Dickstein, Ardie & Dave Hacker, Ed & Sherri Langlais and Margaret Snell.
Come meet new friends and learn to love the Appalachian Trail with more than mere words.
