For the past few days I have been really struggling with very difficult terrain and bad weather – constant rain and wind/cool weather. My tent had gotten soaked on Friday night and I was dreading setting it up in the rain. I had just summitted two peaks above tree lines and was cold and wet. When I reached the shelter I was hoping to sleep in, it was full/overflowing with very tired/wet hikers.
I decided to push on, looking for a tent site. As I approached a dirt road, a young man passed me (Jeffrey Lipinski) – I had met him, his sister (Maggie) and her husband (Robby Campbell) the day before.

Jeffrey asked me if I wanted to go to “Red Lobster” tonight. I was thinking this guy is nuts!
He further explained that the 3 of them were staying with Tom Dickey in Eustis ME that evening. Tom (and his dog Max) kindly invited me to join them
He served us fresh Maine lobsters and a veritable feast for dinner and breakfast.
Tom is a retired Coast Guard captain, born and raised in Maine. He knows how to prepare and eat a lobster.

The town of Eustis is 25 miles from Canada/Quebec – we are way up north!!!
Here’s where we stayed:
This was one of the most incredible acts of kindness that I have ever experienced.
Blessed once again,
Wow, another synchronicity!
Now we know where all of the good people are in this crazy world!!!
