NFCT The “Wrong” Way – Peter Macfarlane

February 21, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm

One-hour presentation with Q&A after.

In the spring of 2013 Addison resident Peter Macfarlane paddled the 750-mile Northern Forest Canoe Trail from the Adirondacks to northern Maine in 28 days in a cedar-strip canoe he designed and built. Five years later he took on a bigger challenge by paddling from Maine to the Adirondacks, bucking persistent headwinds and nine major upstream rivers, riding only four rivers downstream. On June 10, 2018, he paddled into Old Forge, the first recorded passage of the trail from east to west. With photos and video, he will take you through his planning, and then on the roller coaster ride of joyful paddling, loss, exhaustion, despair, and some sublime moments.
