We have moved in to our apartment overlooking the Casco Bay and enjoying ourselves. We rented a few movies at the libaray, (Dr Zhivago, The Godfather, There’s No Business Like Show Business etc etc etc), and are snuggling in our one-bedroom, sipping on Hot Chocolate and Chai Tea thinking about what a brilliant decision we have made. ITS COLD HERE!!! really cold. Its cold and windy and not fit for southern kayakers like ourselves. We are happy in our wool, dry and toasty.
We have jobs at Target now. We should start soon. We took our drug tests today. Yes. Target is hardcore about being drug-free. No problem by me. Now all we need to do is buy some red shirts and khaki’s right? We are still applying at other places too. We will be working and saving monsters all winter.
So, if you want to send us a postcard or a Christmas greeting, email us for our mailing address. We want yours too…
If you think it is cold now, just you wait !!
Dan & Bethany, I feel like am reading the most inspiring adventure book– yours. What you are doing is incredibly hard and exciting, I applaud you both. There will never be another time like this. Just think of how many people will tell the Story of You… “We met these crazy kids kayaking down the East Coast!! …they were so cool…” You have been a breath of fresh air to many people in Maine and to me as well. I hope you enjoy your winter in Maine, and I look forward to more updates about the two of you. Brave!! Please PUBLISH this story someday. 🙂
Love, Jason, Shelley, Ella, & Elizabeth Snapp
As one Mainer friend of mine said, “Think it’s cold now, it’s gonna get coldah.”
