Susan with her husband Al are Registered Maine Guides, have lead wilderness canoe, hiking and kayak expeditions for over two decades.  Drawing on their experiences as educators in the Maine Public School System, they lead numerous student, and adult groups in a variety of places and on different types of trips.  Participants range from beginners to those with extensive outdoor knowledge.

Their expeditions include simple day trips in the mountains, extended camping trips, river expeditions and kayaking in venues such as the Allagash Wilderness Waterway, the Penobscot River Corridor, St. Croix River, Newfoundland, Quebec, Maine and Labrador.   Within each trip, Al and Susan integrate training in map and compass reading, outdoor cooking, animal and bird observation, and information on local vegetation. For those clients wishing to increase their skills in canoeing, kayaking, camping, and hiking, Susan and Al include individualized skill building

Both Al and Susan are trained in Basic and Wilderness First Aid.  They bring to each adventure their enthusiasm, knowledge and love of the outdoors which they share eagerly with each and every client.
